Celebrating Manipulated Photography with the Photoshop ‘Faking It’ Contest

Aliens, clones, chameleons and contorted faces – we’ve seen our Photoshop fans create incredible images since we introduced the ‘Faking It’ contest last month. For the past six weeks, we’ve challenged fans of the Photoshop Facebook page to create manipulated images inspired by artwork in the Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

There are still two more weeks to submit your own altered images to be entered for a chance to win a weekly drawing for a print copy of the 296-page exhibition companion, Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop by Mia Fineman. Fans who submit short videos of how their photos were made will also be eligible to win the grand prize: a trip for two to see the Faking It exhibit in person at either the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. or the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.

The contest is a celebration of image manipulation and encourages fans to explore what creations are possible with Photoshop. So far, we’ve been thrilled to see some incredibly imaginative photo and video submissions. All of the submissions can be viewed here, but we wanted to share some examples of the work that has resulted from the contest. Below are a couple of images from each of the six themed weeks so far. Today, we will kick off the seventh week, which focuses on ghostly images. The contest runs through February 6.

Pretty interesting concepts there. I believe, as long as you can think of something, there’s nothing Photoshop can’t do to turn an idea into reality. Inspiring stuff indeed, can’t wait to get my hands dirty with some of these concepts myself!

I love the “The Tall Tale Postcard” one.
