Adobe Photoshop CS5

Photoshop is an image manipulation tool. Just about every single image you see in print or online has been photoshopped at least a little. Most of the time you can't even tell. Photoshop CS 5 (Creative Suite 5), is the latest version of Photoshop. It has even more tools to trick people into thinking that your fakes are real.

Photo Fakes

You know that in the movies, actors use CGI to make their junk big and their boobs post partum sized (see article: CGI Boobs: 7 Special Effects Stars Want to Keep Secret). Well, that takes a lot of video editing. In print, thanks to Photoshop, it's WAY easier, and therefore, happens ALL THE TIME.

If you look closely, you'll see that Keira Knightly actually does not have a tribal facial tattoo.

Most people can't tell fake photos from the real ones. Check out Cracked article The 15 Most Shameless Fake Photos Ever Passed Off As Real for some examples of the tomfoolery that Photoshop has wrought on us.

In 2006, Reuters was fooled by their own photographer, who added more smoke (using the clone tool, infra) and made the smoke blacker using the Time Magazine Tool:

The first photo is what bin Laden looked like a long time ago. The middle photo is what the imitation bvlgari b.zero1 ring FBI thinks he might look like now. The photo on the right is taken from Spanish politician, Gaspar Llamazares's, campaign photo, and it was used to Photoshop age Osama bin Laden because under J. Edgar Hoover Directive Number 3, all colored people are the same.

How To Use Photoshop The BasicsWorking with layers is one of the most basic tools in Photoshop. Layers allow you to cut and paste other images into your working image and put them in the foreground or background. It also allows you to manipulate different parts of your image separately.
