"Shopping" Back in the Day

Photo retouching (Photoshop is the program) always sets off intense conversation. Some artists are completely against it (and I use artist to encompass all kinds of creative positions) and others use photo retouching to bring a surrealistic feel to their work. This editing process is very time consuming. Many photographers spend more time

This link features two images of the legendary Joan Crawford, one of them retouched. Remember, all of this was done by hand. The article states the photo took six hours to retouch. Six hours for one beautiful photograph.

Can you imagine the hours a photographer would have to pull back then to meet the demands of today's industry?
