Photoshop has recently released a few new set of tools that are somewhat controversial in photography circles. They are controversial because many photographers don’t like the fact that they can completely manipulate an image so that is no longer real. While I agree with that in some context, it is my belief that (like Picasso said) it is the job of the photographer is to create a lie that makes people see the truth.
