    hmm. been quite curious. are all photographers proficient in at least 1 editing software?

    I eat and breathe Photoshop every single day of my life for the past 10 years... Am I good at it? Donch noe... I don't always use it for photo/image retouching but I've probably done that 40% of that time. Experienced? Maybe maybe not, sometimes I do discover something new that I've never tried before. If you ask me if I can blend Ortega's face onto an XMM body? Well, I think anyone can do that once they have learnt the basic tools... To make it convincingly true would highly depend on the shooting elements/condition of both images (face vs body)... Otherwise it is simply a cut and paste procedure with slight feathering along the facial borders... If it is done convincingly then everyone would gasp and exclaim: "Ortega, is that truly you behind that magnificent, sexy body??"

    If shoot film, just scan, resize and post.

    Although abit post-processing will further enhance the photo.

    I can do magic with Photoshop.

    I can change a $10 note into $100 note.

    But 2 years in jail had stopped me from it.
