You remember I wrote about the controversial mascot for Nara’s Heijo-Kyo anniversary, right? Well Tokyo Mango picked up the same story and posted the photo you can see here. Clearly the little girl is frightened out of her skin at the sight of the antler-inflicted Buddha guy… or is she?
Seeing isn’t believing
It turns out that this picture was “photoshopped”, a word used to describe an image edited (or in this case, faked) with the popular graphics program, Adobe Photoshop. Quite why such an expensive piece of software is so popular its name gets used as a verb, I have no idea, but it seems everyone has a copy… literally. 😉
How do you edit your photos?
I’m stuck with an old version of Paint Shop Pro, which is way cheaper than Photoshop and can do almost as much, but how about you guys? What do you edit your photos with?If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I'd love to hear from you!
