Ha, even the losers of photoshop contests could do a better job than that.

If he's forced to resign, I'm sure he can get a job advising the Bush administration.

I can't see the Bush administration needing a Culture Secretary.

Yes, it can make you more tired you know.

Yes, yes, all very fine and dandy but...

...does that woman have a hardon?

Methinks the man doth protest too much.

-Crop lines still visible against black
-Light source doesnt match
-According to their positioning, they should be siamese twins
-No drop shadows around shoes. Looks like he's floating about 2 inches above the ground

What a crappy shop.

Fails at perspective.
 
2007-10-29 12:53:58 AM
what I don't really get is "why ??"
 
2007-10-29 12:54:40 AM
Yeah, it looks shopped. I can tell from the pixels and from having seen quite a few shops in my time.
 
2007-10-29 12:54:40 AM
I can tell this is a 'shop from some of the pixels and from having seen quite a few photoshops in my time

You can tell it was photoshopped.

I really LOLed

/still trying to recover

That simulpost just freaked me out.
 
2007-10-29 12:57:21 AM
I think its funny, look at the "original", and you can see its not the original photograph, but one where they photoshopped out the photoshopped in politician.
 
2007-10-29 12:57:29 AM
The "original" is even more shopped, look at the ground and the curb in the back. No one was there, the location is fake too.
 
2007-10-29 12:57:33 AM
How hard is it to delete the white pixels around his head?

The guy must have started looking at pron and then realized he had 5 min to finish the photo.
 
2007-10-29 12:58:09 AM
Woah!

is it just me, OC, or did our simulposts switch places?
 
2007-10-29 12:58:28 AM
Not being an expert Photoshopper®, I'm sure I'll be corrected, but the picture with him not in it at the bottom looks like he was shopped out. The pavement looks blurry, as does the blue fence hidden by his head. I'd post the picture with my editorial markups, but I'm lazy and going to bed.
 
2007-10-29 12:58:42 AM
But what about the other men in the photo who have been PS'ed? The tubby one on the left has a halo around his head. It looks to me that there were originally only three people, but two men were added and all had new heads attached.

/disclaimer: I PS at work as a professional. But in advertising you already know you're being lied to.

FTFA: The fakery was exposed last month - a fortnight after Mr Purnell urged TV companies to "clean up their act" over fake footage and competition scandals.

ahh, what a great word, to kinda-quote demetri martin: whenever something happens to me, i wait two weeks to tell my friends... because i like to use the word fortnight...
 
2007-10-29 01:00:46 AM
Hmm... How come the 'O' has smudge marks where he was standing?

Both look suspect to me.

They're still the same to me, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's random which shows up first each refresh.

Seeing as 1)I've just come from a cake thread and 2) no one else has mentioned it, I miss my companion cube. Thanks for rubbing it in.

Yo, shopper. While you were shopping, why didn't you do something about the English complexions?

And invest in a Wacom tablet.

you're right! ha ha haha

ahhh, what to believe with all this bad photoshopping going on.
 
2007-10-29 01:16:15 AM
maybe this really bad photoshop job was done to hide a more subtle alteration in the picture.


hmmmmmmm
 
2007-10-29 01:17:38 AM
I came here for FAIL pics and am a little disappointed... on the other hand that is a farking sweet simulpost! Cheers to all involved!

You can tell that he isn't a Farker.

How could he look at that PS job and say "ok print it" ?

/Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

epic phail. Wish I had more to say.
 
2007-10-29 01:28:08 AM
The whole damn picture is fake. Who ever they hired to do their photoshop work should not only be fired but sent to FARK for lessons.
 
2007-10-29 01:28:28 AM
I don't trust that simulpost. It's way too identical to be real.
