“Seeing Is Not Believing”


General Photography

J. B. Mollitt sent me the link to an article entitled Seeing Is Not Believing (thank you!): “To be sure, photographic alterations have existed about as long as photography itself. But before the digital age, such deceptions required mastery of complex and time-consuming darkroom techniques. Today anyone with a modicum of computer skills can call on powerful and inexpensive software to alter digital images. And as sophisticated forgeries appear with alarming frequency, people’s belief in what they see has been eroded.”
