Seeing and believing

I have been using Adobe Photoshop since version 1.0 and it still amazes me today. Over the past 30 years I have taken things out, put things in, made things perfect, cut things out, combined things together and created images small enough for websites and large enough for the sides of buildings.

I use an artist’s eye to balance light and shade, composition and form and in my opinion the use of human imagination and perception will always produce a cleaner cutout and more beautiful image than any AI algorithm.
The best photo-retouching is often the stuff you don’t see.
