hello again.

what exactly is a CG? i see them all over the site, but i don't know how to make one (or what it technically is) but can they only be made in Photoshop? thank you!

A CG stands for Computer Generated. Basically use use the computer and photo editing software to change something. It can be as simple as removing a pimple or completely changing the background of your picture.

Usually people here refer to CGs as doing something very drastic to the picture. Say, putting yourself into a frame of anime or "CGing" yourself next to images from a game.

But since this is the Cosplay Photography forum and not a CG forum, we close threads about CGs. :)
