President Obama’s Birth Certificate PDF has “Layers”
Video Wall ^ | 4/27/11 | video wall

Posted on 04/27/2011 11:25:17 AM PDT by Mr. K

When viewing the PDF in Adobe the text can be removed and added in Layers

You can compress all layers down to one, but someone clearly did not do that last step to make a good forgery

No, I am analyzing an eloctronice document and saying that there is no way that this was a scanned image

It was made of LAYERS in software

look at the date handwritten 8-7-61

note the shape and size- they are exactly the same.

If you sign your name and date a millions times rarely will any two of them be exactly the same.

one might have been copied onto the other

I opened it in Photoshop Elements and saw those white areas behind the text.
YES!

That image was built up, not scanned from a document.

The MSM went haywire when Trump released his BC, Saying he was not legal to run for POTUS because he was boen in Jamaica and his mama was Scottish. Trump the next day released his real non layered COLB and they hushed.

You can bet your sweet patootie if Trump released LAYERS and white in the background of green embossed markings to prevent against forgery and ID theft they would be rightfully screaming forgery.

Call it for what it is, call me a birther,call me crazy and I am sorry but the supposed Obama released COLB is fishy to say the least.

This is pretty incriminating. Those are individual edits, not scanning artifacts.

I find it interesting, that the Nordyke twins, born after obama, in the same hospital, filed after obama, have sequential document numbers, before obama.

It’s a forgery. The Dunham Obama signature is a composite of two signatures. Speculation: the original DOB was earlier in the year. Speculation: the original signature did not have Ann as the first name.

Pdf docs usually do have layers. They aren’t static images like. Jpg files.
Look up OCR- optical character recognition. Acrobat pulls out the text and adds it on a separate layer so it can be searchable. I’ll post more on it when im not on my phone.

It's a lot simpler than people think
http://www.datalogics.com/products/psl/

Compression
Images produced by scanning devices can be huge. For example, a single letter-size or A4-size page scanned in color at 300dpi results in about 24MB of image data. PSL uses various image compression techniques and strategies to significantly reduce the size of each page contained in the created PDF. The output PDF page images may be compressed using simple single-layer compression methods or high-efficiency, multi-layer compression methods. Multi-layer compression involves segmenting the input image by its content and applying optimal compression methods to each segment. Both simple compression and multi-layer compression capabilities are available in PSL.

A PDF of a scanned image starts with ONLY one layer- the image.

This one is made up of multiple layers

You can pull the PDF file off the White House Website and see the layers with a PDF editor.

That is until they replace it with ANOTHER copy that won't allow the layers to be seen.

My graphics expert friend comments:

the more interesting thing about the way the scanner made the layers is that the date in 2011 was in the same layer as some of the supposedly older information. they should have been in different layers, but for some reason they were identified by very sensitive scanning equipment as being the same. if there is a red flag here, that is it.

Your points are well taken. However:

1) When opened in other pdf editors these layers do not appear. The pdf appears as one single image.

2)If the text were to be searchable text it would be consistent text in one electronic font and would not be a combination of dark and light (edited) characters as shown in the examples. This is more editing at the pixel level and NOT at the character level. There is editing on the signatures also and they would NOT be OCRed.

So I don't think the OCR layer theory holds up under this evidence.

It's called Optical Character Recognition software. When you scan something into a PDF, Acrobat scans the text into different layers and makes the text searchable.

You can deactivate it when you scan something into a PDF, but whoever scanned it obviously forgot to turn it off, and now because of this we will be treated to many more years of wild conspiracy theories, all because some government employee made a rookie mistake.

I think an interesting exercise would be an attempt to demonstrate the document released is legitimate. That is, despite all the evidence presented thusfar that it appears to be a fake, if it can be demonstrated that despite evidence to the contrary it could be legitimate, then the issue of the birth certificate would be diminished and we can focus on other concerns such as his parentage.

Alternatively, if the exercise shows the document cannot be legitimate it would present solid evidence it was faked.

I find it interesting that the signatures are on a different layer than the text.

The initial link says they think someone took the negative and made it readable for us by putting it on green background. But how would the scanner separate the signature from the other text? And why are some sigs on different layers?
