Photoshop can turn photos into masterpieces. But if you take a look at our gallery you won’t believe these photos aren’t photoshopped. Well, we know that photoshop can make unbelievable changes to images. Everything began in 1987 when PhD student Tom Knoll wrote a graphics application in a Macintosh Plus. The software displayed gray scale images on a monochrome display. Knoll called it ‘Display.
Tom’s brother John, persuaded him to turn it into an image editing software. Tom tried to call it ImagePro. Unfurnately , the name was already taken for copyright so he opted to call it Photoshop
Nowadays Photoshop can do everything you want, fix the lighting, adjust the colors, apply a filter. Although, there are a few ways to tell if a photo was Photoshopped. One of the way to spot a picture that’s been photoshopped is by examining the way light interacts with the objects in the photo. Shadow will appear to violate the laws of physics, especially when a subject has been removed or added to a photo. Like shadows, reflections can also be an easy way to spot a fake. The object should have a reflection, but if it doesn’t, that might raise your suspicions.
Another way to spot an image that’s been photoshopped. When everything in the picture is in focus. If everything is sharp, it’s most likely enhanced. No camera can actually do that. Also take a closer look at people’s skin. When they retouch your skin, it actually blurs the colors together and blends it so much that it doesn’t even look like skin. However, there are times where you actually take a picture that’s so incredible, people have a hard time believing it’s not Photoshopped.
