PHOTO MANIPULATION & IMAGE REPAIR
• • •
Photo manipulation involves transforming or altering a photograph using various methods and techniques to achieve desired results. Some photographs may need subtle improvements such as removing red eye, retouching image blemishes, or altering colorization. Other editing can involve isolating a single part of the image and replacing the background, or enhancing text with digital effects and layered textures. Below are some examples of the types of image manipulation and typography creations by Midnight Boheme. Mouseover to view the original version of the project.
