Are you big fans of Tumblr? Here at MakeUseOf, we certainly are. The blogging platform brings together the idea of blogging together with social networking and has become home to some of the most creative, entertaining, humorous and thoughtful posts we’ve ever come across. With an easy-to-use backend that lends itself to both creating new content and sharing content that you like, it is home to some of the most viral content on the Web.
The sheer amount of content on Tumblr makes it a joy to browse (as well as easy to lose hours of your day in the blink of an eye), though sometimes you really do have to filter through a lot of repetitive content to get to the good stuff. For that reason, we’ve put together lists of recommended Tumblr Photoshop blogs that we think you should be following.
We’ve already introduced you to 8 Tumblr blogs every writer and book lover should follow, 7 news and political blogs you should follow, 10 humorous Tumblr blogs, 6 Tumblr blogs for history buffs, 12 must-follow Game of Thrones Tumblr blogs, and this week we’re looking at some niche photo Tumblr blogs that replace normal objects with something out of the ordinary.
Phones Replaced with Sandwiches is a hilarious Tumblr blog that does exactly what it says on the label. Taking photos where the subjects were holding up a phone, they replace it with all sorts of sandwiches. A bunch of teen taking a group photo with a phone? Now it’s a baguette. A group of young men and women all preoccupied with their cell phones?
Now they’re staring intently at what looks like lunch. The bizarre change in the photos is enough to keep you amused, and keep you coming back for more.
Following in the same vein as Phones Replaced with Sandwiches, Sports Balls Replaced with Cats is an even stranger trip down Photoshop lane. The blog is a never-ending stream of photos where basketballs, billiard balls, footballs, tennis balls and more, are all replaced with adorable little kittens. The end-result is a series of photos you might feel wrong for laughing at, but will just keep laughing all the same.
Baguette-Me-Nots is another Tumblr Photoshop blog that brings the joy of bread into places you simply don’t expect to see them. This time, focusing entirely on the French baguette, it replaces everything from picture frames to bananas, from a flashlight to suspenders. The baguette makes a hilarious appearance in every single photo taken on the blog run by Tim Bierbaum and of Serious Lunch.
Rather than photoshop the bread in, the photos are taken with the baguette itself, and best of all? The subjects are all celebrities. You’ll spot some well-known names including Matthew Broderick, Kristin Chenowith and more.
Why photoshop the dog wearing a funky outfit when you can put the dog in a funky outfit. That appears to be the premise behind Mens Wear Dog. Not only are the bizarrely disconcerting photos taken with a dog wearing some pretty impressive threads, if you like his look, the blog will also let you know what each piece is, and where they’re available or who designed them.
It’s a bizarre lens into the world of fashion, but an entertaining one nonetheless.
Want a blog that replaces Nicholas Cage’s face with a cat? Well look no further than Nick Cage Cats. The quirky Tumblr blog photoshops Nicolas Cage’s face right into a cat. The end result is a pretty impressive photoshop job that will likely have you associating cats with Nicolas Cage from now on. That’s how impressive the photoshop jobs are.
Last but not least, Pizza On Face is one of the strangest, and strangely entertaining blogs on this list. Whether or not you’ve ever wondered what any given celebrity might look like if they’re face was made of pepperoni pizza – that feat is now possible. We’re guessing none of you ever wondered what Conan O’Brien or Daenerys from Game of Thrones might look if their face was suddenly made of a very cheesy pepperoni pizza.
Well either way, you can now find out just that in the aptly named Pizza on Face.
