Photo Manipulation

manips

It’s not just for fun… although it can be!

Photo manipulation is the combination of two or more photos to create one. This process usually takes the best features from two or more similar photos to create something with all of the best features. Like the below: Two before pictures of the children, one that was tall and cut out the other children, the other with no smile.

Before - Great smile, but how about the rest of the kids?

Before – Great smile, but the kids?

Before - Wide but where's the smile?

Before – Wide but where’s the smile?

After - All children PLUS happy smile!

After – All children PLUS happy smile!


Photo Manipulation for Advertisements

Another great example is this photo for a satellite phone advertisement in a worldwide hunting magazine. Obviously we wanted to showcase the phone as well as the trophy, but the two images we received either overlapped one or the other. Plus, the scanner put a line right through the middle and the logo on the phone was washed out in the sun. So we combined them two photos to make the best of both worlds.

Other Fun Photo Manipulations:


Photo manipulation can be fun, but it can also be incredibly handy. Put green grass over winter yards. Insert a blue sky where a rain cloud was. Perfect a picture that was mediocre and make it amazing. A simple photo manipulation can help your website header stand out. This technique can modify your book cover to represent so much more.
