It's one thing to produce surrealist images using digital manipulation a point which really belongs in the realm of graphic arts anyway with the photograph (or digital image) being merely the chosen medium of expression, against for example the use of paint, charcoal or other materials.Originally posted by naresh666

Of a far more worrying nature is the digital manipulation of images by intelligence agencies and other governmental organisations and NGO's to hide deceptions or change public and political decisions. Such manipulation when done with skill is impossible to detect. Indeed I recall a discussion with a Kodak Digital Group Manager in the late 1980s where he admitted that the technology and techniques were already in place and being used by security forces to completely alter an image to the point where it could be used to deceive a judge or jury in a court case or to persuade a country to go to war etc.
