We reached out to Eduardo Valdes-Hevia, a Spanish visual horror artist, to discover more about Photoshop’s secrets.
To begin with, he clarified the distinction between picture editing and manipulation. The technique of altering an original photograph is known as image editing. Many photographers use various colors, contrast, and cropping to modify their photos.
Deeper adjustments in a photograph or mixing numerous photos to create something new are examples of photo manipulation. It might entail everything from treating pimples to spreading false information.

“Photo manipulation, or more precisely, the composites you”ll generally see in Photoshop wars,” Valdés-Havier explained.
“Finding a background image that fits your subject or vice versa is the first step. Then masking the subject away from their original background, matching things like lighting and color in both scenes, adding shadows, and sometimes skewing perspectives to fool the eye into thinking it’s all a single picture!”
“Hiding the most apparent alterations using shadows, fog, or whatever else you can think of and control” is a crucial component of photo shopping. He added.
