Thanks to the high level of image processing technology available, even a picture taken by an arthritic spider monkey can be made to look like something from Ansel Adams’ portfolio. Beyond that we can even create scenarios which stretch the limits of our imagination. With a little practice, one could create a seamless photo of Mickey Mouse punching Mr.T in the stomach while gold coins shoot out of his ears.

With this in mind, some Photoshop artisans have taken to the web in China and are using their unique skill sets to make right what once went wrong in the world of photography. However, sometimes wires intentionally get crossed, leading to some seriously hilarious results.

The following were posted on a Chinese news site Beijing Daily. They all involve someone requesting either to fix a mistake in a bad photo or to improve the photo in some fantastical way. However, their wish is granted in some Twilight Zone-style twist.

For example, the gentleman above asked for his unsightly nipples to be covered via photo editing magic. In response, the editing team fitted him out with a stylish pink bra. Similarly, a guy asking to look like the son of some powerful political figure is magically transformed into Kim Jung-Un. You get the idea, so without further ado, enjoy this set of photos, which have already gone viral in China and are making people smile all over the world.
