Reinventing Old Photographs

Sep 10, 2008
Back in the day, when you took a photo you were pretty much stuck with it. Altering the image after the fact was a black art known to few, and available to less than that. This is no longer the case. With the advent of digital imaging and more specifically, Adobe Photoshop, image editing has reached new heights of manipulative wizardry, allowing a competent user to not only touch up a photo, but to practically reinvent the image. Let's look at a few of the more basic things that Photoshop can do in the hands of even the most novice of users.

Blemishes no longer have to be an embarrassment in a photo. With Photoshop's retouching tools, you can erase the most severe acne with a few simple keystrokes.

Have any treasured photos that have been damaged by time? Torn or worn photos? With Photoshop you can scan a photo and retouch tears and scars, water damage and more to repair photos to new and even revitalize colors that may have faded through time. Saving family heirlooms alone make Photoshop worthwhile.

Closed eyes in that latest glamour shot? Yes, you were the only one other than Grandma who may have been half looped to begin with, and now what do you do? Use Photoshop to open the eyes, that's what!

What if you have a photo of yourself that you love, but with someone else in it that you don't love anymore? Old flames can stay a thing of the past by simply being 'erased' out of a photo as if they were never there to start with. If only life were that easy! Almost any undesired object can be removed from a digital image.

Photoshop has a great many more features that can help transform your photos from a contribution to the circular file to an image you'll want to treasure and share for years to come.

The ability to salvage those old, tired photos and restore and retouch them to being new again is one of the many advances in photography today found especially in Photoshop. With a little practice, Adobe Photoshop can make all of your photos picture-perfect.
