Oily Photoshop action (plus UFOs)

  • BP has caught flak for digitally altering an image of their crisis response HQ.  “‘Normally we only use Photoshop for the typical purposes of color correction and cropping,’ [a company spokesman] said in an e-mail. ‘In this case they copied and pasted three ROV screen images in the original photo over three screens that were not running video feeds at the time.’” [Via Noah Mittman]
  • Meanwhile UFOs over China are being attributed to Photoshop work.  It’s kind of a weird, sloppy article, though: no details are given about how Photoshop (or anything else) could or did produce the video included on the page, and in any event what’s shown is a UFO (that is, an unidentified flying object); it’s just not necessarily an object of extraterrestrial origin. [Via Pete Falco]
  • Update: There must be something in the water (no pun intended), as now the controversial action is spreading to golf.
