Last night Earl Shilton Camera Club were in North Wales for a talk by Sue Clark LRPS CPAGB AWPF entitled “174 Years Of photoshopping”. This was very enlightening and covered the history of “photoshopping” images aka image manipulation. Surprisingly this started some 150 years before the introduction of the program that has since given its name to this process. The presentation included many key images through history showing what was done, how it was done, why it was done. Proving image manipulation isn’t a new art brought about by computers.
