A graphic designer and Photoshop wizard has touched the hearts of thousands after responding to a woman's request to "make her pretty".

James Fridman regularly accepts requests to digitally manipulate people's photographs.

But when a woman with an eating disorder approached him asking to edit a photo of her to make her "pretty", he refused.

The woman wrote: "Hi James I was wondering if you could maybe make me look pretty in this picture.

"I don't have any self confidence and am struggling with an eating disorder so just wanted something to aspire to be and look like, just a beautiful version of myself."

Instead of ignoring the request, Fridman politely declined and wrote: "Nothing and no one could ever make you prettier than you already are. Don't be influenced by the wrong standards.

"Don't put looks before your health. Get well."

Fridman, who has 254,000 followers, shared the exchange on Twitter - where he regularly posts the responses to his Photoshop requests.

The tweet has since been shared more than 1,800 times and has garnered more than 6,000 likes.

People were quick to praise Fridman for his response. One person wrote: "You sir, are a wonderful man."

While another added: "Good call man. She's lovely."

Twitter users also commented on how beautiful the woman is. One person tweeted: "She's so beautiful! Look at her eyes (well, the one you can see in the picture). Thanks for being so kind and supportive to her."

Another said: "Beautifully spoken to a beautiful girl. Thank you for speaking truth."
