Affairs of the art

Whenever Photoshop is in the news, it's generally because of doctored images, whether it's models or celebrities promoting unattainable body image, grievous errors or duplicitous signs. But doctoring images has also played a positive role in society, as evidenced by this great spot for Adobe by Goodby Silverstein to celebrate the omnipresent software's 25th anniversary. 

A few years back, a video for Dove showed what was possible with Photoshop. 

But for all the Photoshop-related content, this one is still our favourite. 

Photoshop has also led to some of the more entertaining internet memes, such as 'can you move the sun between my fingers'.
