Photo-Editing Software and Tricks

Creating phony ghostly effects through photos has been a common practice throughout history. In the late 19th century, William Mumler, the first professional spirit photographer, created fake images using multiple exposures to make it look as if a spirit were present in the photo. Today, anyone can create ghostly illusions using basic photo-editing software, such as Photoshop. The image here is a Photoshopped combination of two photos, with special effects added to give it a more realistic appearance.
