Early Photoshop?

Terri Reinhart

Until investigating these photos, I didn't realize how much photo manipulation went on in the early years of this craft. I was shocked! Stunned! Everyone who looked at this photo said they thought the man on the right side, sitting on the porch, looked like he had been added in. I said, nah, they couldn't do that. But look at the lighting, everyone said. I still wasn't convinced, because I just didn't think they could do it. But, here you go. 

The first photo is the original one. It is of my grandmother's family - her brothers and sisters and parents. I'll list the names, but I can't correctly identify each one.

In order of age, not place in photo:  John and Anna Pimple with their children - Catherine, Fred, Wendell, Peter, Marie, Christina, Theresia, Joseph, Peter Anton (Tony), Margaret, Raymond, Frances, Agnes, and Rosa (the littlest one, sitting by the fence post).
