Photoshop or Not

Pho٠to٠shop - noun or verb?
Today Photoshop has become more than just a term to describe a program for editing photos. It has become a term for describing whether or not a photo has been manipulated to change the appearance from its original state. People frequently use the term "Photoshopped" in this way.

My name is Rob Resnick. I currently work as a Photoshop Artist at Image Studios, a commercial photography studio in Appleton, Wisconsin. In my spare time I enjoy photography, art and the outdoors. My job as a Photoshop artist has given me a new perspective in regards to images that we see nowadays. The line between reality and manipulation is getting harder to determine just by viewing a photo. I have created this blog in attempts to illustrate what can be accomplished with the use of Photoshop.

Brushing up on new tools

Photoshop is continually improving and introducing new tools to achieve really great effects without much effort, all you need is a little bit of creativity and imagination. One such tool is the perspective warp tool that was just introduced in January of 2014. This tool allows you to change the perspective of an object with really great results. Most objects that work well with this tool have a defined edge to them. I decided to try and see what it would look like if I applied it to a object, in this case a face, which didn't have a defined right angle. The results as you see here give you the ability to create an edge thus making the face here seem square.
Sometimes it's fun to think "outside the box" and see what happens.
