Most of you are probably thinking “you bet!” or “what’s there to KNOW?” right about now. I believe you. The truth is, if you know how to enter a query and hit enter, you know how to use Google. At least in its basic form.

Explore and share your images in full, high-resolution detail with Zoom.it, a free service from Microsoft.
Peg Becksvoort's insight:

This is not really about doctoring photos. It really allows the user to explore small sections of excellent high-resolution photos.  A thoughtful word: remember to respect the copyright, ©, of individuals and their photography.

Flickr disables Pinterest pins on all copyrighted images (exclusive) | Do Doctored Photos Change Reality? | Scoop.it
As the third most popular source of content on digital pin-board site Pinterest, Flickr and its photographers are subject to frequent acts of copyright infringement.

Peg Becksvoort's insight:

One of the issues that Flickr photographers do worry about is © infringement. Will this help them feel that their content is safer? If they could disable users from including © images in blogs without authorization, that would be very nice, too.

How fake images change our memory and behaviour

How fake images change our memory and behaviour | Do Doctored Photos Change Reality? | Scoop.it
Doctored images can affect what we eat, how we vote and even our childhood recollections. The question is why there’s nothing we can do to stop it.

How to tell if a “shark in flooded city streets after a storm” photo is a fake in 5 easy steps | Do Doctored Photos Change Reality? | Scoop.it
The combination of increasing extreme weather and social media has created, if you’ll pardon the pun, a perfect storm for sharing photos that show post-hurricane devastation (both real and f...
Peg Becksvoort's insight:

Great tips for thinking through unreal possibility type photos - a la "Enquirer" or "Star".   Also important to think about with photos that are clearly more truthful-looking. Should the consumer of news photos become a detective over every news photo?
