Pictures that lie

A revealing look at photos that lie over at C|Net’s With the article is a collection of 24 altered pictures, some shown with the original un-doctored image, and an explanation of what and why alterations were made. Some of the changes are minor, while others are fairly substantial modifications of photos.

The article starts with this original and modified photo of Katie Couric, and shows other photos sometimes changed for intentional dramatic effect, sometimes for humorous story-telling, and sometimes just to allow more image to be viewed in a limited sized picture.
