If you ask me, you can never be too old for cartoons. And I’m sure that artist, actor, and teacher Samuel Manzanera would agree. When he’s not teaching or working on movie projects, he plays with Photoshop and makes himself hang out with his favorite Disney characters. He creates hilarious scenes and adds himself to them, and his composites are sure to make you laugh out loud.
Panasonic recently found itself in the center of attention for all the wrong reasons. The company published a series of weird composites to promote its wearable speaker SoundSlayer. One of the images consists of a white man’s head on a black man’s body, with skin tone altered to match. And not surprisingly – it has sparked a lot of controversies.
Madonna recently came under fire for sharing a poorly photoshopped image of her head on another woman’s body. I honestly don’t know what’s weirder – the awful Photoshop job, the publishing of this image on Madonna’s official Instagram page, or the fact that it was published in 2015 and only got viral now.
I love good composite work. Even though it’s a different art form from photography, it’s strongly connected to it and it lets your imagination go wild. Ted Chin (previously) creates some of the trippiest composites I’ve seen, and he has kindly shared his latest work with us. His images show animals in environments where only imagination can put them, making his work look as if it comes straight from the dream world.

Similarly, there are some tools that photographers would love to have, perhaps instead of those “useless” ones. Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect suggests 16 tools that should definitely become a part of Photoshop and make our editing workflow way more efficient.
Photographer Aaron Groen recently came under fire from the photography community. After he shared a photo of a tornado, many praised him for the amazing image that must have been scary to take. However, some photographers claim that the photo is “clearly fake” and “obvious composite” and the whole story quickly blew up.
With Luminar 4, Skylum’s image editing software has become more focused on AI-based features. The latest free update, Luminar 4.2 is now out. It could be a real treat for everyone dealing with composites and digital art – or those of you who would like to try it out.

Not long ago, Instagram rolled out a feature that flags fake photos. The main goal is to remove misinformation and fake news, but the feature seems to have gone too far. It’s now hiding all photoshopped photos, flagging them as “false information.” This could have implications for everyone who uses Instagram to showcase their digital artwork and image composites.
