Not photoshopped at all
#1
I have had this thing as my screenlocker image for a couple of weeks now (seems to be a standard Windows10 image), and I just noticed how heavily photoshopped it was.

I was once curious about how these images would appear on the PC if I hadn't downloaded them.   Huh

So I researched, and discovered the folder in Win that stored them, and there were several of them, repeated in different formats.
All of them could be found on walpaper sites, at least the ones I searched for.

Nowadays it is more difficult to find natural photos, without retouching or editing than the other way around.

This has always been that way. Paintings were lying a lot and very early photos were retouched.

Exhibit A: my grandfather, picture taken about a century ago (1920s). If you look closely, there are pencil strokes on the temples to mitigate their whitening and make him look a tad younger (he was a bit under 50 at the time).

   

Exhibit B: the AI-reconstructed portrait of Georges Danton, a leader of the French revolution, using know paintings. IRL, Danton had scars from smallpox, a broken nose, and a distorted upper left lip. But the AI didn't see them in the portraits....
