Digitally Manipulated Photos
- Digital photos can be manipulated to change what is in the photo or how it looks
- It can be hard to tell if a photo has been manipulated
- They can be deceiving- mislead you to believe something is true that isn’t
- Celebrity photos are often times manipulated. Comparing yourself to manipulated photos can make you feel bad about yourself because it’s an unrealistic expectation of what people look like.
- It’s increasingly difficult to figure out what’s real and fake online- from news to images
- Digitally manipulated photos are not limited to people- charts, graphs, and other images can be altered as well.
- Digitally manipulating photos can be fun and a way to express yourself creatively.
