Glasses What Did We Do Before Photoshop?

Just about every photograph we encounter, whether it's on a computer screen or in a magazine or on a billboard, has been retouched or manipulated digitally in some way, most likely using Photoshop. From simple retouching like removing red-eye, to complex manipulation like removing people, Photoshop has dramatically changed the way we use the medium of photography. Or has it?

The first thing I thought of was the fairies at the bottom of the garden photos that fooled Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The first thing I thought of was Stalin's "revisionist" history.
