Quote of the day:
what is the daily mail? It looks tabloid-ish with a tad or self-mocking, kind of like the Onion? If so, maybe they just don't give a rip if they create fake photos.
So says an anonymous commenter on the ever-wonderful Photoshop Disasters blog, with reference to a truly terrible bit of shoppery (link fixed, sorry!) on a pisspoor silly-season feature about how beach polo is the 'latest craze' (except it isn't). No time to take more than one photo? No matter! Just take a random beach picture, edit out all the people and clone the sand, then cutout *exactly the same* picture of a bloke on a horse you've got elsewhere in the article... and Bob's your uncle. Who could possibly spot that? (Er, everyone)
I love the idea of someone stumbling across the Mail's website and thinking they're a pisstake. Which in a very real sense, of course, they are.
