From http://photoshopdisasters.blogspot.com/ ... otcha.html - gotcha, indeed. Note the way the bad Photoshop job leaves half a leg in the boat.

Wow. What was the piece about, Prince William?
Being very generous, he would have got in the way of the headline...

Aye, it has almost certainly been done to fit the headline in.

Leg aside, that is a piss-poor cloning job on the sea there.

There is another black man in shot there, which makes whether they've done this for race-related reasons debatable.

:this: If you RTFA it was clearly done to fit the headline in, nothing to do with race. On the other hand it's a hilariously bad piece of photoshoppery.

It's a stunning piece of photoshoppery compared to that Daily Mail article linked to from here a while back. Anne Diamond had three hands, if I remember rightly...

Yeah but I don't agree with them; they've just slapped a sensationalist headline on it for the hits. If you look at the bigger version of the pic there is clearly a headline running through the space where they've photoshopped out the guy. Seeing as how there is another black guy in the boat I can't see it being about skin colour. Not like that ad for the Ford Dagenham plant where they 'shopped out half a dozen black guys and replaced them with white ones.

For the record, my original thread title was fully tongue in cheek, although if another company had done that, it's likely The Sun would be all over it. Especially so if, say, the BBC website or a Trinity Mirror publication had done the same.

Aside from the embarrassing photoshoppery... what the hell has happened to the navy if the 2nd in line to the throne in a frickin row boat? Andrew got a whole destroyer to himself.

Chinny wont recognise that score if it's in the banana scale.

It's about time there was a site like this out there. Minor L.A. annoyance: It was bad enough having to look at fuckawful head-paste/airbrushing disasters on dvd cases, now I see 'em on the sides of buildings, 50 feet across. That six-fingered GTA4 girl was everywhere a few weeks ago.

Tsk. It's clearly the Metro that has crudely photoshopped Lee Perry into that picture in an attempt to appear less racist.

The disembodied leg is just a stray limb found in the sea, with the owner waiting to be identified by reference to chiropodical records.

THERE IS NO PLOT.
