Faking It is a free app from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is a companion app for the exhibit Faking It – Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop at the museum.
The app shows to the readers some historical photos that are altered with different techniques. Some modifications are done for political reasons, some are edited due to photo technique limits, some are just for artistic expressions.
Each picture has a detailed explanation on why and how the picture is edited, and readers can see the before and after comparisons.
