Photoshop has been used to edit, retouch or even manipulate images for years. When it comes to what you can do with photoshop, I would say only sky is the limit. Let your imagination run wild and come up with some crazy ideas as to what you can do with photoshop these days. However, you don’t need to start day dreaming to do a few things that are commonly used in today’s world. One of which is to edit ghost mannequin photography.
Working on ghost mannequin photography is a two step process or a team work. First step is to take the actual pictures or the actual ghost mannequin photographs. Once the photographs are taken by a photographer or a person of interest, it then can be passed down to the photo retouching experts for creating the ghost mannequin effects on the photograph.
Once the ghost mannequin photography is edited by the photo retouching services providers, the image will look like a mannequin is standing with a dress on but the only difference between the mannequin dummy that is found on the stores with ghost mannequin photography is that, mannequin is not visible on the edited ghost mannequin photography. Or in other words, the ghost mannequin effect is created so that the edited image looks like a mannequin wearing a dress.
This type of ghost mannequin photography is commonly used on apparel websites and to promote certain types of apparel products online. It can also be used on printed catalogs, to create product brochures, etc.
Some small apparel stores only needing a few images edited here and there can attempt to do it on their own if they are skilled with photoshop. But in majority of the cases, this editing job is handed over to photo retouching experts who are skilled to do this sort of work.
