Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Digital manipulation of railway photographs is the practice of image editing using graphics software to correct flaws or improve the aesthetics of a digital photograph of a train. The ethics of the practice are debated amongst railway enthusiasts, as it allows the creation of images that may appear to be other than their actual subjects. This is most notably by removing modern features, so that an image of a surviving locomotive hauling a modern special is made indistinguishable from a period photograph. As well as the usual corrections such as cropping or adjusting the brightness or color balance, in order to improve the composition, often more drastic photo manipulation is undertaken. This manipulation can involve the removal of items in the image, or changing the livery or other identitifying marks of railway vehicles in the image.show more
