Photoshopping throughout history


If you wanted a good primer on photo trickery prior to the existence of Photoshop, check out The Atlantic’s brief history of pre-Photoshop fakery. Turns out photographers have been interested in this type of manipulation for almost as long as photographs have existed. The Atlantic post lead me to Four And Six’s archive of photo tampering throughout history. It is neat.

Stalin was one of the first to cut out his exes and enemies.
