BP Photoshopping Goes From Bad To Ridiculously Bad
from the oh-come-on dept
With BP finally admitting it Photoshopped an image showing its “oil spill response center,” it appears that people are finding all sorts of ridiculously bad photoshops done by BP in describing its response to the oil spill. Take, for example, the photo below:
It doesn’t take long to realize that the helicopter cockpit you’re looking at is not actually in the air at all. In the upper lefthand corner, above the pilot’s head, you can see an air traffic control tower. Oops. And, at the link above, they also zoom in on some of the panel instrumentation, suggesting that the door and ramp are open and the parking brake is engaged
. Oh, and that document in the pilot’s hand? Pre-flight checklist.
Perhaps BP is practicing in an effort to Photoshop the oil out of the gulf… However, somehow, I get the feeling it would leave some… artifacts.
