Of all of Reddit's weird gems, Photoshop battles are some of the site's best gifts to the world. There is truly no better way to procrastinate than by scrolling through new and improved variations of boring photos. 

And these Photoshop battles are best when they're competitive — as it turns out, Redditors take their art very seriously. So, we bring you: the most recent Photoshop war. 


Redditor DarylMoore challenged Photoshoppers to give this feisty brown squirrel an epic makeover.
