Photoshopped
Photoshop is great. It was the beating heart of my gainful employment as a turner outer of workaday advertising print and press work for 15 years and if a client media hadn't got cranky about vector text and press ganged me into Illustrator..., probably for another 15.
A pirated Photoshop 7 - and I could still do pretty much anything with it even now.
Adobe Photoshop. It is THE tool for image manipulation and much more.
Problem is, anyone can buy it. Like when every business bought Windows desktop machines and thought their admin staff could do their print communication inhouse - and couldn't, the same went and still goes for Photoshop.
Monkeys, typewriters and Shakespeare. And it's true: you can become very adept with Photoshop and other pro graphic applications. But should you? A wiseacre employer advised a young and ingenuous me that everyone writes copy but not everyone can become a copywriter. I am pleased to say that I did and it's now how you find me here.
A text advising Best Men once informed me - probably just in time and saving the day - that comedians should tell jokes; Best Men shouldn't.
Photoshop is an invaluable tool for getting more out of a good pic and in the hands of a smart and creative mind, will entertain both producer and audience.
Photoshop is genuinely great but only if employed professionally, creatively and judiciously.
If you are a champion fell runner, do that. If you are a gifted mountain story teller, do that. If you just love the hills, do that. But for heaven's sake do not do Photoshop because unless you really know what you're about, even the least jaded eye can see it's a spoof and a bad one at that.
