The Politics of Photoshop
Posted August 17, 2006on:
As I read this article, it came to mind once more how publishers, print or electronic can use the power of my favorite design tool to render a person in almost any light they wish. Remember OJ, Osama. There are many more (not all here were done with Photoshop) Then I saw this article. Mr Galloway presents a solid case in this piece and I am not sure why that image of him looks so pixelated and….yellowed. Like he’s sick or something. Hey maybe he is, I don’t know. But from my experience as a graphic designer, context frames the thinking for the content. Hence, to some people once they see this picture beside the copy they may not give the article much credence. For some minds it all it takes is a lo res image with some yellow spots to say, this reporter has lost his marbles. Now I never heard of Mr. Galloway before I came across this article, not even sure how I found it. But a 1 minute Google search found this.
