student asking question

Is the word "photoshopped" used a lot to mean that image is processed?


Native speaker’s answer


Yes, you are right. "Photoshop" is the name of a very common photo-editing software, and the word "photoshop" is often used as a verb to refer to the process of altering or editing photos digitally using Photoshop software. Even photos that have been edited without Photoshop are often referred to as being "photoshopped". This word has become very common for any image that has been edited. Ex: Is the man in that photo really that tall or has he been photoshopped?
