I guess sometimes it is better to be lucky than to be skilled…




Tech Support

 "Tech Support"

This is from a web comic called XKCD, you can see the website here.

Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).

Photoshopped or Not?

At Ottertude we do not use photoshop, though we have posted images which were known to be photoshopped. These edited images are typically comical, unlikely images, posted under humor, and often identified as being “shopped”.


Because of the widespread use of digital manipulation, editing digital pictures has never been easier. And, because image manipulation happens at the pixel level, detection is not as easy as it was before the digital era. Many times we see unusual or unlikely images on the web, and in some cases these images turn out to be altered using Photoshop or some other image editing software. Edited images can be exposed by algorithms that detect discrepancies or statistical irregularities at the bit level. Now you can determine whether an image is taken by a digital camera or is edited – by using Photoshopped Image Killer.

"Portrait Professional"

You can check any image to see if it has been altered, and learn more about / download a free trial of Portrait Professional, the portrait enhancement plugin for Adobe® Photoshop®, if you visit the Photoshopped Image Killer Website. Thanks to Henry and Carolina for this information.

Well, thank you for being aboard, and supporting the effort for all these years. I’m glad they could craft a space suit to fit, and your efforts are greatly appreciated, especially now as the program winds down. M+Ms Rock!

This is great. This image has been around the web, but I’m posting it just in case you haven’t seen it some where else…
