  • Faked photos?

    The following is an article from the House Select Committee
    On Assassinations. This tread is not to see if the lone gunman killed or didn't kill Kennedy. But to see how photo/retouch experts evaluated the pictures for their "Photograph Authentication". You have to read "between the lines" on how this is done though. Good stuff. Really deep.

            That was an interesting read...

            Well guys, here you go

            Unfortunately the quality is too low to 'verify' this picture ourselves..

            Wouldn't mind scanning the original negative on the drumscanner and having a close look in photoshop, though

            Foound this pic on a website loooong time ago when i was still interested in these kinds of things, so can't give you a source for the pic. But I'm sure a searc on Google or others will get you some results?

              well looked around.. didn't find any clearer photos of the "backyard" photos .... but did find this page with many photos and info on those pix...

              interesting stuff

              and here is the photo that showed up 20 years later in the dallas pd a work in progress ?

              more interesting photos I guess... if you read spanish ... me no comprendo !

              if anyone finds a clearer scan of the backyard pix would still like to see them... would seem they have to be somewhere...

                Off the computer

                When I am working on the computer I use the method K Eismand recommended in her PS REst and Retouch book ie. a folder for each project and within that a folder for scan, WIP, and Final.
                Then I have separate...

                Collecting Vintage Photos
                by CCdesktop
                I want to begin to collect an inventory of photos from different time periods - like WWII, or the depression.

                Does anyone know of or use any collectibles sites that offer photos that are not too expensive?

                I'd appreciate any tips you can offer.

                Where can I find Stock photos?
                by gbdurfee
                A couple times in couple threads noticed Greg refers to Can someone tell me how to find the things in there that one can find. All I see is pictures for sale and probably don't know how to use the site. And, is there a site that has 'stock' photos of normal stuff, not for sale...

                by Julianne V.
                I have photos taken by my Father in Japan '45 and '46. After seeing the cost of having them restored, I decided to learn how to do it myself. I work in photoshop cs, and have been at it a bit more than a year. What are my chances of making a REAL QUALITY restoration of photos such as this? I'm new...
