The theme for Viewpoint’s annual juried exhibit "TWELVE" this coming December is "Photoshopped!". The digital photographic revolution leaped forward with the introduction of Adobe Photoshop twenty-five years ago. Today Photoshop is the essential tool in digital darkrooms around the world. Almost every image in print, on the web or in galleries is edited in Photoshop or Photoshop Lightroom. The edits range from rudimentary cropping, spotting, sizing, increases in contrast and sharpening to sophisticated restoration and retouching, high dynamic range processing, and elaborate collages.
TWELVE: Photoshopped! invites submissions that have been processed in Photoshop or Photoshop Lightroom. Any subject and photographic approach is invited: portraits, landscapes, abstractions, macro; restoration to documentary, astrophotography to underwater, still life to street life, photojournalism to photomontage. The single limitation for submissions: all images must be edited in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Photoshop Lightroom. The deadline for on-line submissions is October 21, 2015!
