What is Digital Photo Editing?

Photo editing is a term that refers to the manipulation of an image. With film photography, the editing process was mostly done by physically altering the printed image with an airbrush. With the advances in digital photography, photo editing has become much more advanced. Digital photo editing allows for complex adjustments to be made down to the image pixel. Editing can be used to enhance exposure, remove unwanted objects, retouch an image subject, and more.
