When someone “ask do you Photoshop?” some would say yes , but then we’ll have the ones who want to be special, dont want people to know they edit or just don’t know that PS/ photoshop/ shopping is a household name.
Others who say “no I don’t…….I do edit my pictures though”, you do know that to Photoshop means to edit your photos right? To Photoshop means not only the program anymore.
So now we have people who are embarrassed and who don’t want to admit they edit their pictures so they are quick to say “no I don’t use Photoshop” and leave it as that. It’s so much easier to say “yes I edit my pictures but I use this program if you want to know”.
We also have the, light editors.
Now when you hear photoshop you think of things like these girls below
That is a fail, and god rest your soul if you actually believes a girl like this existed in any time of your life. This is just the extreme way of doing it, changing the shape of your face is not the only kind of shopping you can do, changing the lighting is also editing your photos and also photo filters. Lighting makes the picture, if you ask any photographer whats the one and most important thing to pay attention to, its lighting. It sets the mood is hides flaws and its your best friend in cosplay.
lets look at this girl
People who think changing the lighting using any kind of program is not editing your picture, is completely wrong. Yes angle helps allot and so does blur but lighting is also there as help, maybe even more than using the blur tool. Yes, use harsh lighting and say I dont use photoshop but to add on top of it with a program you specifically used and say no that is not photoshopping is lying.
This is another excuse, “I dont own photoshop“, but at-least the user explained they have Lightroom.
(Also here is a program for people who dont have photoshop.)
Sunlight is the best lighting and editing tool by far, I think for me or anyone else, unless you’re allergic. Other than showing the true color of my skin, it shows the glow of my face….and foundation haha.
-people that photoshop only themselves in group photos……..
Need I explain how selfish that is?
