If you’ve spent any amount of time in mom and pop Chinese restaurants — especially around college campuses — then you’re probably seen the strangely colored and faded food photographs used in the menus and displayed on the walls. These photographs look anything but appetizing, yet you can find them everywhere there’s cheap Chinese food.
For those of you who understand exactly what we’re referring to, CollegeHumor created this humorous parody Photoshop tutorial that discusses an imaginary new “Chinese Food Tool” — a suite of tools that’s designed to easily turn any nice-looking photo of Chinese food into one that will fit right in at a small Chinese restaurant. The tagline: “Now you can display MSG in CMYK.”
