What is image manipulation in photography?

Generally speaking, most folks tend a lump image editing and image manipulation together. Image editing has more to do with optimizing a File’s dynamic range for the intended display media, optimizing the color saturation and color correctness, and potentially cropping the image to its best presentation format.

Image manipulation on the other hand has to do with extracting elements from one photograph either to move them to another area of that photograph or to put them into a different photographic file with different elements. It has also to do with altering the direction and quality and text Rob Light, in a given photograph. It sometimes also has to do with simply illuminating individual elements of a photograph, like removing a person place or thing. So it is fundamentally to change the content of the frame where editing is fundamentally to optimize the content of the frame.

Introduction to image editing course is a free 2 -a week training course for beginner learners of Adobe Photoshop. The course includes activities and field research.  The course instructions, badges, and certificates will be in this course. 

This is a course aimed at making you a better designer. The course marries theory and practice, as both are valuable in improving design performance. Lectures and readings will lay out the fundamental concepts that underpin design as a human activity. Weekly design challenges test your ability to apply those ideas to solve real problems. The course is deliberately broad - spanning all domains of design,  graphics, services, apparel,  and products. The emphasis of the course is the basic design process: define, explore, select, and refine. You, the student, bring to the course your particular interests and expertise related to, for instance, furniture, fashion, architecture, or products.  All project work is evaluated by your peers -- and indeed, you will also be a peer reviewer. This format allows you to see an interesting collection of projects while getting useful feedback on your own project.
