PhotoShop in the news

PhotoShop is now in the news after a photographer at Reuters (probably a freelancer) seemingly faked a picture of a bombing in Beirut.

The photo was obviously hacked, and very poorly at that.

Here’s the modified picture, obviously manipulated:

Via little green footballs.

And here’s the actual picture:

Via Sportshooter.com.

And who exposed it? A few people on the Internet, apparently starting with a blog post at LittleGreenFootballs.com.

Power to the people.

Update: Photographer says he was “trying to remove dust marks”.
