Is the AP photo alledgedly showing the newly elected hardline President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a photo-shop fake ?
First the news story buzzing around the world at the moment.
Now the evidence it is a fake
Three Iranians involved in the 1979 seizure of hostages at the US embassy in Tehran have denied allegations that the new president took part.
Some of the former hostages have said they recognise President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad among their captors.
Mr Ahmadinejad's office has strongly denied the reports.
news.bbc.co.uk... Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Bellow is the AP photo of the Iranian President engaging in the hostage taking...
now look closely at these close-up enhancements, the first just a close up and the second inverted
Now, notice that strange white line in the first image around his head? that should NOT be there... I included the inverted image because this line
shows up more clerely as black... compare that line to the complete lack of a line around the head of the man next to him against that white
background... it just shouldn't be there!
Now i have worked as a photoshop engineer in the past and i would rate this image as a POOR fake... You dont even need to squint to see that something
looks strange about his head in it.
Edit: This is not a discussion that is suitable for ATSNN.
