In light of the explosion of photo-altering techniques & programs, both on computers & on mobile devices like cell phones & tablets, the nature of what constitutes a “photograph” is rapidly evolving.  This interactive discussion will begin with a brief overview of the public perception of what is a “photograph” & then explore what is variously meant by the term “Photoshopped”.  Participants in this forum are encouraged to share their views on what they mean when they refer to the term, and also explore other views.
