It seemed meaningful and compelling, and you’ve evolved a brain that rewards you for the propagation of things that seem meaningful [...]

opheliawithashotgun: ‘A Walk at Dusk’ by Caspar David Friedrich Wow. Had to reblog this after checking out the tags for other posts about this painting. Someone lightened this a lot in Photoshop (or the equivalent). It really changes the mood. Compare this unaltered shot of the original at the Getty: Reposted from http://lies.tumblr.com/post/43633219350.
According to the good people at Web Urbanist, …people have been altering photographs for political purposes almost since the day photographs were invented. Oh yeah? JPEGs or it didn’t happen! Oh, wait… Anyway: Politics of Photoshop: 15 Shady Edits for Political Purposes.
Isn’t local politics fun? Bessemer mayoral candidate Dorothy Davidson claims Nick Saban endorsement, passing out fliers with altered photo. See also the update, in which Davidson’s campaign manager takes the blame: Bessemer mayoral candidate’s campaign manager admits he lied about endorsement from Alabama Coach Nick Saban.
This story in today’s New York Times caught my attention: Mistaken as an Iranian Martyr, Then Hounded. Iranian intelligence officials, Ms. Soltani said, pressured her to come forward publicly to show that she was alive and denounce the shooting as faked, and threatened her when she did not comply. The Iranian secret police seem oddly [...]
From San Francisco’s SantaCon the other day. Not Photoshopped: More details at BrodyQat’s photostream. She even wore gray contacts. That’s dedication.
Sort of funny to me from a professional point of view. http://www.boingboing.net/2009/06/17/ahmadinijad-sucks-at.html
From some bloggy New York Times site: In an Iranian Image, a Missile Too Many. Here’s the first version (which apparently was pulled by those stalwart defenders of copyright, the mainstream media, from the web site of “Sepah News, the media arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards”). This photo ran on the front pages of [...]
I’m a sucker for stories about doctored photos, but this one actually has a happy ending. The folks over at “The Leaky Cauldron” (AHPNATT … All Harry Potter News, All The Time) posted an irate (but very well done) editorial recently on an Ad the IMAX website had been running for Harry potter that was [...]
I’ve been so busy that I didn’t even notice at the time, but back in February Lies.com had its tenth anniversary. In honor of that, I did a quick skim through the site’s entire history and jotted down comments about a few of my favorite items. Think of it as something like an audio-commentary track [...]
All those high-profile bloggers who indulge in Friday cat-blogging (or whatever) have inspired me to inflict this on you. It’s from my little would-be Photoshopper, William, who, during our recent Thanksgiving trip to the mountains saw fit to doctor Matthew McConaughey’s People magazine “Sexiest Man Alive” cover with the picture of the recently-departed “ugliest dog [...]
You may recall ymatt and my disagreement about whether the story of someone dumping a few hundred thousand superballs off a San Francisco rooftop to film a commercial was real, or a clever Photoshop hoax (see Pictures don’t lie. Except when they do.) Well, I think the evidence at this point strongly supports “real.” The [...]
If you listened to the latest podcast, you know I’ve been obsessing about the credibility of online images lately. Here are a few examples of why, from Worth1000.com: Match point Old Paris Best in show The last one actually took me a few minutes.
No time to obsess properly over this, so just a quick one to mention some noteworthy photography-themed links I’ve been staring at lately: * I am very much in love with BAGnewsNotes. * ymatt took one look at more bouncy balls and declared it an obvious piece of Photoshop fakery. At first I agreed. Then [...]
Via Boing Boing, check out the winners of this little-kid photographic beauty contest: Photo Contest Winners. Per the contest rules, “These should be professional pictures, but should not be extremely or overly retouched.” Uh huh. I’ve got news for the people running this contest: either your contestants are ignoring the no-excessive-retouching rule, or we are [...]
