Beautiful photo manipulations make a invaluable asset for professional designers.
Photo manipulation: What you need to know
Photo manipulation is the process of altering the look and visual fiction of a photo. This process is made through the use of computer software such as Adobe Photoshop. In photo manipulation, the digital artist transforms the image to convey what they want than to present the image in its original form.
The Ethics of Digital Manipulation
With the advancement of technology, many designers are able to literally do anything what they want the image looks like, and the possibilities lie beyond their imaginations.
Just like other types of photography, photo manipulations also come with its ethics and aesthetics. Ethics are a set of rules that are defined to set what is good and bad. Aesthetics on the other hand, defines the nature of beauty, art and taste, and things that are pleasing in appearance.
When does a photo manipulation violate ethics? The answer to this question depends on the purpose of the manipulation. If you add an element that makes a photo into a fictional one and your purpose is just to create fiction or portray a scene that is truthful then it doesn’t violate the rule. An image that represents something as truthful when it is not is really upsetting.
