How people did photoshopping before Photoshop was invented.

Yep, the act of photoshopping existed before Photoshop!

Image manipulation has been around much longer than you think! When I went to college for photography, everything i learned was with film, not digital; so I am fully aware of how much effort it took to do some of these! (And some I can’t imagine doing because it must have been painstakingly time-consuming! – like the one of Ulysses S. Grant)
