posts about or somewhat related to ‘photo manipulation’

An alert photo editor noticed that the pattern on the dust repeated itself in an unlikely way and subsequent investigations revealed the visual fraud.

A freelance photographer for AP was caught manipulating sand granules in one of his photos of children playing soccer in Argentina. A memo was later sent out announcing that the photographer would no longer be associated with AP as their “reputation is paramount.”

Is this an example of technology as a double-edged sword? What does photo (or even content) manipulation say about credibility in an industry when credibility is the foundation?
