Viewers nowadays do not witness the complete reality in photos, as most of them are manipulated or altered with various programs such as Photoshop. But, again, this has not been happening only recently, as photo manipulations have been present since the dawn of photography itself, more exactly, since around the early 1800s.
Creating illusions in photos however, implied incredible labour and skill and of course extensive time, combining printing, photomontages and even over-painting, a process that has evolved today into overlaid and enhanced filters, available with just one click. So, imagine that without the “undo” option present today, the final result implied hundreds of alteration attempts. But without these efforts of the past, we wouldn’t have the evolved, simple techniques today. Watch and be amazed of the little magic tricks that made photoshoped pictures available today!
