Photoshop ethics & pistols & kittens
…these are a few of my favorite things.
- "When is Photoshop unethical?," asks Freelance UK. I’d make it "When is Photoshop use unethical," in the sense that "Guns don’t kill people; people kill people." The article doesn’t really break any new ground, I think. For something a little meatier, check out rules and guidelines from Reuters governing the use of Photoshop, posted in the wake of the 2006 image manipulation scandal. [Via John Dowdell]
- Providing a different take (from an artistic as opposed to journalistic perspective), Scott Kelby shares his Photo Editing "Code of Ethics."
- In any case, whatever you do, please don’t use Photoshop to defame nice old cat ladies. They’ll send you to the psych ward for that! [Via]
