Photoshop has been in the news recently. You may have heard yesterday that a Hasidic newspaper photoshopped out Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and one other female staffer from the photo of President Obama and his team watching the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. You can read more about it here.

Now the Denver Post is out with 38 “fake” photos; from a fake death picture of  bin Laden to other historical events and magazine covers. Most of them involve just plain bad Photoshop skills. Of course the older ones were done before Photoshop even existed. Still, it’s interesting to see the reasons why photos were manipulated.
