photograph manipulation

Photograph Manipulation is the process of scanning photographs into the computer and then altering them. Photographs can be digitally stretched, merged, overlaid, cut apart, and put back together again with the click of the mouse. Being able to edit and combine photographs digitally gives the artist the power to add new meaning to pictures. Two pictures may have no strong statement by themselves, but when combined they can express a very strong message.

For photographers like Jerry Uelsmann who combine and manipulate images from several photographs through a chemical development process, the computer can save an incredible amount of time. "Cut" and "Paste" features included in almost all software packages make this process much simpler. Color editing features also make obvious shade differences in photographs invisible, adding to the reality of the manipulated image.
