Wow, They are nice.
They probably do, tbh, but I'm guessing only to sharp up the colour or something.

If by photoshopped, you mean instead of taking a picture of the guitar they use 3D modelling applications to recreate the guitar, then yes, I think they do

cuz they know their guitars are fugly

except apparently they didn't really know what to photoshop so they just made things shinier and stuff. goddamn that headstock...

i think it looks completely photoshopped, like on the cemetery gates one it looks like they cropped and added on the pickups and floyd.

It's funny, the body graphic looks detailed and the pickups and floyd look like crap

Every picture of something that needs to sell is edited, whether it's a guitar, a car, or a hot girl advertising for perfume.

It's basically the standard these days if you want to sell stuff.

it's really obvious, and i think makes me not want to buy it, because i dont want to see a computer generated image of the real thing, i want to literally see the real thing.

they are defiantly photoshoped... actually i dont think they even had a pic of a guitar when they started... the pick ups and FR are IDENTICAL to every blimish on both the pics... exact same whammy bard position... they only made the (angel of the photographer) slightly different wich is easy to do... all they did was add in some pics cut out the design, import the copy of the FR and pickups and then just shine it... its actually a REALLY easy thing to do and this looks like it was done by an novice... kinda shame-full job but a good beginner could do that pretty quickly

and yes i am highly skilled on anything related to computers for the most part

Yes, even if you see a photo of a guitar, they use high quality cams and lighting, and mess around with the colours, making the glossy parts more shiny/brighter, and the darker tones, more dark.

This or Vectored, either could be done easily... Don't understand why they don't just do studio photography though...

It's called HDR photography. They take three separate pictures, merge them, and adjust for a deep color contrast.

It's being overused by many photographers right now.

But it does makes crappy pictures look amazing.

They use photoshop because they wouldn't want to spend the extra money on a professional photography service. Just one more way they can cut their costs and somehow charge more for their guitars.

The first one was definitely vectored, and the second used (As Davey said) HDR.

they probably just use the image in the database for the machine that colors the guitar

Looks like a Kisekae generated guitar, tbh...
You can see how all the knobs/pickups/bridge have unnaturally hard edges
#33
its not photoshopped, all they do is take the actual guitar and make somewhat of a 3-D Model of it, this is so that it will look better (shinier) than what the actual guitar is, its just a method of crappy advertisement to fool some people to think WOW thats really awesome.
