The Truth in Advertising Act: Can the Government Really Regulate Photoshopping?
AdAge ^ | April 14, 2014 | Simon Dumenco

Posted on 04/15/2014 2:28:46 PM PDT by Daffynition

As I wandered through the halls of the Cannon House Office Building, a stately Beaux Arts behemoth that sits kitty-corner from the United States Capitol, I kept thinking how strange it was that I'd come to Washington, D.C., of all places, to be lectured about truth -- specifically "truth in advertising."

You may be wondering: Truth? Like, truth in political advertising?

No matter how it's 'shopped....still a flaming LIEberal!

Yes, we need yet another monstrous government agency with all the trimmings like ammo, doing nothing but scrutinizing every image in the public sphere and running it through an army of lawyers. /s

How about Pelosi’s Botox? And you know Hilary is going to get it. And don’t get me started on “Plugs”.

But I worry: Where do we draw the line? Where does "truth" in advertising -- not to mention in photography in general, or life in general -- begin and end?

Fedzilla, of course. It has placed itself as the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and end of truth, the First and Last redeemer of all who will bow to its lying wisdom and authority. Wanna be deceived? Beast.gov delivers.

When photoshop is outlawed only outlaws will use photoshop.

Before it's too late,

Mikey ought to have an appropriate image for this thread. :)

I wouldn’t say that missing an entire hand is an excusable part of “trying”.

Where did that photo come from?

The White House, or the ‘Rat media shills, or...?

very dareful image manipulation..beginning with high resoluton source material can be made indistinguishable from a “untouched
image!

There are photographers....albeit no professionals who still decry doing ANYTHING to an image after its been shot...FILM OR DIGITAL

ANSEL ADAMS...although not a Commercial photographer...was a MASTER in the darkroom and were he still alive he would doubtless be processing his initial images In Photoshop
