"Photography gave the world a lifelike memory. It is especially well suited for journalism, but serves other areas exceptionally well also. Legions of photojournalists have used the medium with great energy; many also have used it with great thoughtfulness and ethical integrity. The heirs of earlier photojournalists continue in their footsteps, taking advantage of the significant improvements in technology to better communicate to readers and with heightened ethical awareness." Fred Parrish, 2002 This study examined the decision and thought process photo editors make on handling manipulated images through digital photography. The findings found the practice of editing has not changed, but the way in which editors examine photographs has changed. Computer screens replaced light tables, and computer software replaced photographic loupes.
