Retouching and manipulation of photographs has been there since the start of photography. Photo manipulation or photoshopping is one of the most popular ways to create a deception through a photograph. Designers love to get their hands worked on photo manipulations. This is a great way for them to showcase their own creativity. Photo manipulation is a combination of many photographs into one along with the use of many graphic elements. Various photoshop elements and filters like brushes, textures, blur filter, grain filter, etc. get used very extensively.
There are two types of photo manipulations, technical and creative. Technical manipulation is a simple way in which you change the contrast or the white balance or the color of the photograph and create something more intrinsic. Creative manipulation is bit more complex. It involves many photographs. The end result depends on the imagination of the particular designer. These manipulated photographs are then used for advertisements and magazines of fashion and beauty.
A person always looks for the focal point in a photograph and then look around. Thus, a designer needs to know what his focus should be on. Designer should thoroughly know the “one-click” effect filters to make the work easier. The stock images that are to be used for photo manipulation should be of high quality. Many designers make a mistake by not concentrating on the reflections and shadows. Toning and color blending is another point the designer needs to look out for.
