It is possible to manipulate the structure of computer holograms. Because these holograms are produced synthetically, we are able to influence some parameters directly. In order to demonstrate this flexibility, some situations were considered: A specific modulation technique (two-carrier procedure) was chosen together with some specific types of manipulation (carrier profile and partial inversion). The effects are described analytically and illustrated by experiments.
