There are many ways to alter photos, but there is no "right" technique to use for every image.  The content of an image (whether outdoors or indoors, scenic or industrial, realistic, fantastic, or surreal) will often determine which techniques are easier to apply, and which are more difficult.


These example images include seven types of photo alteration techniques:

cloning or extending elements already within image

hair extension

removing image elements (by patching samples of background over them)

background removal   |   button text   |   fashion spread   |   patterned ballgown
