Default Photoshopping before photoshop

Photography lost its innocence many years ago. In as early as the 1860s, photographs were already being manipulated, only a few decades after Niepce created the first photograph in 1814. With the advent of high-resolution digital cameras, powerful personal computers and sophisticated photo-editing software, the manipulation of digital images is becoming more common. Here, I have collected some examples of tampering throughout history.

It has come early examples, right up until the present day. Click on the images to see originals compared to altered.

In lots of old conformation photos of dogs, they would brush out the lead and sometimes even the handler alltogether. Some were glaringly obvious.

The Ralph Lauren ad ( is just plain creepy. I can't believe that even made it past the editor.
