NASA are excellent at image manipulation, and I'm sure they don't use Photoshop, rather a private variant that would be running on high end workstations, which would be vastly superior (kinda like comparing Paint to Photoshop for us). Whatever they use would wipe the floor with Photoshop.

Those are two different images taken of the same location on Sol 168. You can tell by the image ID. The Top image (the one you call the "original") was taken by the right camera, using filter 1 (436nm), note the end of the ID number, 2596R1M1. The other was taken by the left camera using filter 7 (432nm), 2596L7M1.
Since both images are readily available here marsrover.nasa.gov...
what possible motive would there be to creating an "artificial skyline"? Since all of the left camera images taken that sol look the same, I would guess it was a problem with that camera.

Agreed! So these could most likely be two images stitched together. But those clones being only in a few areas and not along or across the entire image was what created the doubt.
So how about these two images, the second with the missing rock?
This is what I find weird is that the mountains in the background always stay the same (size, shape, formation), doesn't matter what position you're at the moment.. Kinda strange, huh?! I would like an answer for that one..
