Thread: 1950's photoshop
April 25th, 2012 #1
I wonder how images like these were made back then before magazine photoshops their images. This looks like something between an actual photograph and illustration, if it is new I'd just think they are obviously photoshopped or painted on to remove blemishes.

It's an illustration bud, plus what you call Photoshop techniques are actually based off real media trickery done in red rooms and studios with real photographs. Sure now everything is automated with one click but it was a whole different thing when you had to do it to tangible pictures.

1. That looks earlier to me, more '40s than '50s, but I could be wrong.
2. Yes, it is a photo. It may be a tinted B&W, but color photography from the period often has the same look.
3. Tinted B&W or not, it has been retouched. Pre-digital retouching was a combination of darkroom manipulation and airbrush, paint, dyes, bleach, etc. Like retouching today, it ranged from clumsy and obvious to masterfully invisible. Digital retouching started in the '80s with dedicated workstation computers like the Quantel Paintbox.
