Photo tampering

Interesting website on photo tampering, maintained by Hany Farid.

Examples include the obvious political ones (Stalin etc) and advertising. Goes from 1861 (Abraham Lincolns head on someone elses body) to a Malaysian politician producing photographic evidence in July 2010 that he had been knighted by the Queen, and BP prettying up an image of their response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. In many cases the original and the doctored images are shown side by side.

The site is also the front end for some serious research.
