    Inspiration 20 amazing photomanipulations

    To celebrate the 175th article, I’ve decided to celebrate by doing one of my favourite things: a showcase of great work. Besides, I love being able to share the work of fabulous, incredibly imaginative artists with you.

    All of these images come from These are some of the best examples of photomanipulation I’ve come across. Most of the time, the image will be a collage of several photographs. Often, the photocollage is then hand-painted in Photoshop or Painter. Additional elements can be painted in, partially covering over the original photographs.
