Photoshop Prison Away


Apparently, this site will photoshop the photos that you took on visiting day at prison. Here’s how the site describes it.

“Are you tired of seeing you and your family

Photos Beyond The Wall now offers what you’ve been waiting for …

the romantic or exotic location of your choice!”
