Editing real estate photos is a trend now, and so was it even hundreds of years ago. It would be quite hard for people to believe that photo editing techniques evolved in the 19th Century. Photo editing companies in the earlier days neither had Photoshop nor Lightroom, but they definitely did the necessary photo edits efficiently. Given below are three popular image manipulation techniques of the old times.
Ghost photo editing was quite popular in the early days when the photographers edited pictures of people with their family or friends who were no longer alive. It is quite obvious that the photographers just combined two pictures into one to make such an image. Though it seems very easy and doable by anyone today, even simple editing techniques like this were highly popular in the 1900’s.
Humorous photos were quite popular in the past. However, if one sees such old edits of humorous photos, they will feel that it is nothing less than crazy. During those days, photos of people wearing superhero costumes were a rage. Though things may sound a bit too simple and silly, this is how photo manipulation has evolved through history. If the then photographers did not try these kinds of edits, we will not have much photo manipulation techniques now.
Helmut Herzfeld was one of Germany’s most famous photo artists of the 20th Century. If you read books regarding the history of photo manipulation, this author will be mentioned the first. He is known to be the founder of “a political photomontage” that was the new kind of photo art. The main three elements of his art were alienation, symbolic, and satires, and he even risked his life every day to print satire pictures of the Nazis.
Photographs of Whole Teams
You could say that this editing is still in use, that too widely in use. This editing technique is all about editing to add or remove certain people or things from an image. For instance, if a picture of a whole team of football players was taken and some member quit the team well after taking the picture, photographers used to remove them using image manipulation techniques.
Inspired by these simple editing techniques, dedicated tools for editing real estate photos, ghost mannequin service, object removal, etc., gradually evolved in the field. In fact, people now do photo editing as a mandatory element that helps them improve their online business and attract more customers to make a deal with them.
