    Has anyone seen the "Hanoi Kerry" photograph? The one sent around as a smear tactic against Kerry. Well, it's a confirmed fake. Looks like photoshop can be a powerful campaign weapon :o

    Check out this news article:

    I don't think the photo Sean posted is the correct fake photo. If you look at the Newsday article linked, the original photo is published. It's a right side profile of the Senator in B&W. I don't see how, even with great photoshop skills, that photo could have been made into a slightly left profile color head in the Jane Fonda photo.

    I have seen an obviously faked photo of Kerry in front of a Viet Cong flag, so I'm not surprised. I've also seen an obviously faked photograph of Lt. George W. Bush in uniform sitting beside Miss Fonda in another version of the photo Sean posted.

    Ain't politics fun.

    Of course, Photoshop & D allows for a lot of tricks.

    But decades ago there was a french film which main history was a woman blackmailed through a fake photo.
    The interesting aspect of it was that the producers sent the fake B&W photo both to the french police and army asking if it was fake and both (after using top techonolgy of that time) stated it was not fake.

    And it was done with purelly analog techniques by a teacher at a french college (at the request of the producers).
