A user interface technique that lets a user start application functions by manipulating objects. The user begins an action by moving the mouse pointer over an object and then pressing and holding down the drag mouse button (mouse button 2 is the default for OS/2) while dragging the selected object to a new location. The user then drops the object onto the new location by releasing the mouse button. For this reason, direct manipulation is also known as drag and drop.

โ€ข Direct manipulation interfaces are usually easier to learn because they rely on recognition rather than recall. โ€ข The effect of operations tends to be easier to spot, and therefore, avoid in a direct manipulation interface because the consequences are normally visualized in such an interface. โ€ข Giving instructions tends to be more efficient than direct manipulation for experienced users.

Photo manipulation software is basically an advanced Photo Editing program that allows you to do more features than standard programs like Picassa and Microsoft Paint. A perfect example of photo manipulation software would be GIMP, which is an open source program similar to Photoshop, which is also a manipulation program.
