I paid strangers to Photoshop my Photos-Fashionista Joy Kendi
Ms Kendi opens up
In one of her YouTube videos, the fashionista disclosed that she went on a mission paying strangers to photoshop her pictures just for fun and get the perspective of her photos in the hands of an editor.
In a 10 minutes video, Ms Kendi mentioned that she reached out to 4 different Photo-editors who were in her DM, requesting to work on her photos, spending at least Sh3500 on the whole project.
According to the beauty and lifestyle blogger, the 4 strangers who photoshopped her pictures, focused on making her waist tiny and prompting her to consider hitting the gym.
“I paid 4 stranger to photoshop my photos. Why you ask.... why not.... lol. I spent a total of 3500ksh for the photos ranging between 500ksh - 1000ksh per photo. This was all for fun, not here to make fun of anyone’s photoshop skills,” reads the description on the video.
Many of the comments left under the video, argued that fashionista looks better in her natural photos than the photoshopped ones.
Watching the video, Ms Kendi’s priceless reaction on the transformation made on her pictures is just out of this world.
