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
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.
