Photo Manipulation

Today, the Beaumont Enterprise is reporting on an email hoax started here in my home state.

It involves a photo of a shark that was manipulated to make the shark appeak much larger than in reality.

Faked Shark Photos

Photos by Steven Beard
Steven Beard, 56, of Port Neches, shot several photos, seen above, of a five foot black-tipped shark on July 16, 2006, and later combined parts of photos A and B, above, to come up with a faked photo, C, which he emailed to a relative who then emailed it to six other people. Eventually the faked photo circulated world-wide on the internet.
