Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 1 May 2013

You can’t change the past. Or can you? Photoshop wizard Flóra Borsi has been doing for a while. Using humour and quick wit, the 19 year-old Hungarian artist puts a spin on famous black and white photographs. What would happen if Elvis Presley’s fans all had cell phones at his concerts? Well, take a look at Borsi […]

By Kat Heap in New Design on Friday 18 January 2013

I was made aware of Jeremy Wong’s playful approach to Life Buoy Soap’s You Eat What You Touch advertising campaign recently. The pug loaf in particular made me smile. His other work is definitely worth a look, too.

Photoshop in real life

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Thursday 3 January 2013

Budapest-based photographer Flora Borsi wondered what Photoshop would look like in real life, so she made a bunch of manipulated photos — what else? — parodying photoediting tweaks such as the patch tool and hue/saturation presets. These are way fun.

Photoshop generated creatures by Dave Rapoza

Ben Winfield Reader Find

By Ben Winfield in New Illustration on Friday 23 November 2012

Nothing I say can do this man justice. One literally has to see his work to experience its true awesomeness. Created entirely in Photoshop, Rapoza’s digital illustrations portray creatures of all shapes and sizes, lit so amazingly that you are almost convinced that they are going to climb out the screen, punch you in the stomach, and rip your guts out. His work is truly inspirational.

Birds with Arms

Keith Greiman Reader Find

By Keith Greiman in Cool Websites on Friday 1 June 2012

Sometimes the dumbest idea is the best idea. Case in point Birdswitharms. This is photoshop at its most inspiring. It is simply tons of photos of birds doctored up to have human arms. I will forever hate myself for not thinking of this first. Thankfully though, somebody else did.

Photos of fireflies by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Saturday 12 May 2012

Japanese hobby photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu used time-lapse photography techniques to take numerous continuous long-exposure shots of fireflies at night in southern Okayama, and merged these shots afterwards in Photoshop. Now, if these pictures were taken over three years between 2008-2011, and the average lifespan of fireflies is a few weeks, we must be looking at several generations of fireflies in these images.

By Low Lai Chow in New Illustration on Saturday 5 May 2012

Photoshop-manipulating pictures before posting them on Facebook? Nothing unusual about that. But UK-based illustrator and graphic designer Ewa Mos takes this idea in a different direction, illustrating over pictures of faces in a delicate and divisive manner.

Terribly photoshopped Russian wedding pictures

Margarita Peker Reader Find

By Margarita Peker in Cool Websites on Thursday 3 May 2012

There are few benefits to being born a Soviet. After 25 years as a Moldovan, however, I have identified three: pickled delicacies, rose gold, and the god given right to laugh at other Russians. I think there is just something undeniably hilarious about stereotypical Russians, and for the next five minutes, I extend my birthright to you, reader, so that you can be unrestrained in your enjoyment of these awfully photoshopped Russian wedding pictures.

Awesome digital art by Greta Poulsen

Contributions Reader Find

By Julie Jackson in New Art on Wednesday 16 March 2011

Digital media artist Greta Poulsen’s latest exhibition, Shift, features a compilation of moving images compressed into one still image. The moving images are from the television series, Dragnet 1967. Photoshop compares each frame and combines the result so that anything that is moving in the frame is manipulated, while everything that stays still remains relatively unchanged.

Aeron Elfrey

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Illustration on Tuesday 8 September 2009

Illustrator Aeron Elfrey uses Photoshop to its fullest to create completely unique and disturbing images. Elfrey obscures and mutates his source images to the point where his final pieces are greater than the sum of their parts, and look rather painterly, richly textured, cohesive, and genuinely horrific. The t-shirt he designed for Syracuse-based metalcore band Unholy is the very definition of bad-ass, but I much prefer the Finnish doom metal band of the same name.
