Seeing is what you do with your brain.  The eyes are
simply periferal devices for input.  

Thirty years ago I was doing hand colored photo
etchings that started out as black and white
photographs.  I then etched them on a copper plate,
drew on the plate with etching tools, then hand
colored it with my fingers and brushes before running
it through a printing press for the end picture that I
hoped looked like what I saw in my head.  Photoshop
now can do much of what I was trying to do then, and a
bunch of stuff I hadn't dreamed of.  

If it is less of a photograph for being manipulated, I
couldn't care less.  If it is what I was "seeing" and
I liked the result that is what matters to me.
