An artist recently posted a tweet offering to remove people’s exes from their photos for $10. It seems that she totally hit the spot: she got so many requests that she can’t seem to keep up with the demand.

The tweet was posted by young artist @hexappeaI, who also added a “before and after” example. She noted that she would consider “serious inquiries only:”

Her tweet hit over 162K likes and 18K retweets. Not long after the original offer she posted, she had to raise her rate. “Due to the amount of messages [I’m] getting I’m raising the price to $15. If you messaged me before this, it will still be $10 when I get to you,” her next tweet reads.

I’ve seen many artists on Fiverr offering to remove background or objects from photos for as little as $5. And just as folks on Fiverr, some Twitter users quickly offered to do the same thing for $5. A few of them even posted freebies they’d done:


A couple of users couldn’t help but notice that she didn’t exactly do a perfect job removing exes from photos, at least not in her example image:

Still, despite everything, it looks like the clients are pleased with the work @hexappeaI has done for $10 (or $15). Some of them posted the results on Twitter:


What’s even more interesting is that @hexappeaI is doing the work on her iPhone. Eat your heart out Photoshop masters!


So, it looks like we can throw away our Photoshop skills out of the window and start using a phone app to edit photos and make money. Joke aside, I admire this young lady’s entrepreneurial spirit and idea. She seems to have found a very specific, yet numerous audience. You can’t change your personal history in real life, but hey – at least it’s possible to do it in photos. And it looks like there are many people willing to pay for it.

    I’ve done several of these for clients over the years (since I had photographed the weddings.) From $500 to $2000 (depending on complexity.) Mostly just removing the ex $500 (new 16×20 print;) sometimes replacing the with someone else. The most interesting was a girl’s mother replacing her ex-husband at daughter’s wedding with her son with a new 16×20 print $1200. Then the ex-husband replacing the ex-wife (using the same shot the wife had removed the husband in) with his new younger wife, also a new 16×20 print $2000.

      From having done a few, (both sides) its just spite. Pure spite. Cost doesn’t matter.

    Maybe it’s a family pic with a large group. Makes sense to me.

    It would look a bit strange with only me in my wedding photos. But thanks all the same.
