Interests
A while back, I stumbled upon a section around here where deviantART actually defined what they consider a photomanipulation to be. Their definition of photomanipulation is where you take two or more photos (textures don't count) and put them together to make something entirely new. I recall they were also comparing the photomanipulation category to the Digital Art>Miscellaneous category, and explained when to use which one.

A long time ago, I "manipulated" a stock photo of a girl, where I edited the colors, the contrasts, heavily edited the skin and eyes, etc. and eventually, somebody reported it to dA as being in the wrong category, as I had placed it into Photomanipulation> People, and the mods promptly placed it into the Digital Art>Miscellaneous> People category. Which was fine with me, considering the fact that dA doesn't consider that type of deviation to be photomanpulation.

However, a lot of other people are unaware of this, and of course, I can't seem to find that the place where the topic was even being addressed (I've checked the Help and FAQs section and couldn't find anything). Either way, I've noticed quite a few "photomanipulations" lately where someone is just using high quality, popular stock photos of pretty girls and either simply applying a Photoshop action to it, or just slightly editing the colors and contrasts - and getting hundreds to 1,000+ favs for it, of course!

So, my fellow deviants, how do YOU define photomanipulation? And do you think that deviantART should add an extra category, entitled Photomanipulation>Minimal Effort, for the aforementioned deviations to get placed so that the hard working photomanipulators can get their art seen?

Discuss.

(Oh, and if anyone could link me to where deviantART defined photomanipulation, that would be awesome. Because as of right now, I'm thinking I dreamed it all up...)

Hey there,

sorry to bother you here. I just checked your FP profile, because I wanted to read TIOGR again. I love this story and I have tried all the links you have on your profile, but the story is nowhere to find. Is there anyplace you have uploaded, it's really a shame that you have taken it down, alltough I really understand your reason.

Don't you write anymore?
Uhm...
I have to say it,
I'm really jealous of you, not only are you an awesome writer, you are a great photomanipulator as well.

You have really great work here.

please let me know if I can find and read TIOGR anywhere.

Sorry again for disturbing you here and for my bad english also.

so long
Ithil
