Missles everywhere

Andy pointed me to the excellent Photoshop Disasters site a few weeks ago. It very quickly become a favourite feed. Today's example has slightly more political consequences than the usual digital nip and tuck which seems to be so routine these days. It's becoming increasingly common, who remembers the Reuters releasing a sexed up picture of the Israel-Lebanon conflict?

This site has a nice breakdown of some more memorable examples of photo manipulation. Sadly it's becoming more common in news reporting which I think is a dangerous trend. It looks like Obi Wan's advice is becoming increasingly relevant:

Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them.
