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.


It's all about operator skill. It's pretty much possible to do anything you can do in Photoshop with 'Paint' given the right level of skill...

Photoshop has taken 20 years and billions to develop to the level it is at now, a level in which you can easily stitch images as in this post and due to operator error alone end up with duplicates as seen above....

I very much doubt they have their own specialist software along the lines of photoshop. Photoshop is the industry standard. Hell, if they can make Lindsay Lohan look sexy in all her pics, then they can stitch a few moon pics fo' sure bro.

I stitched together some beach panoramas from a recent holiday and experienced similar things... I did the blending by hand where necessary - e.g. where waves had moved between pics etc.

I had to work around the large 'foreground' objects, as they would be too obvious if removed due to their size, hence I ended up with duplicate objects but the image still appeared to be seamless as a whole. I will try and upload to photo fanny and then link.

I'm not defending NASA as I know they have clearly edited other moon photos etc, but I don't think this is anything to be suspicious of.

I believe my post above clearly debunks "Moon Scientists" and all "Singular" Photos...lets expand our "Consciousness" and "Awareness" folks...the moon is still a mystery due to TPTB...can I get any simpler on the subject...we need "Continuous High-Res" Photos of the Moon over a certain period to deduce for ourselves the activity that is currently going on..."Proof"...is "Dynamic"...by it's very nature...welcome to the other side...welcome to 4th-Density...

well what ever I'm sure there are p[plenty of conspiracies with NASA but I'm sorry "We landed on the moon" why would we fake it, was it just to spend millions of dollars on something else? I think not. come on

It looks like somebody has been pretty clumsy with the photoshop clone stamp to me.

Calm down, don't get too 'excitable' (
)

If you follow the latest posts, it is apparent that the intent here was to create a panorama....not to deceive, simply to make a nice picture.

I cannot tell you how many times I've been somewhere on holiday, and video a scene or area that I find particularly compelling....but it just doesn't have the pizazz, the 'Wow!' factor when you replay the video later.

When we look at a vista we see through our peripherial vision a nearly 180 degree span. We can turn our head, take in more...our brains create the 'panorama' in our memory. I think it's a nice, pretty picture to hopefully give us Earth-bound lard-butts some vague sense of what it might have been like to be there.....

I find it quite surprising that there are no...High Res Photos/Videos over a continuous period of the entirety of the Visible Moons Surface over a given period of say...a Month or even several Months...what gives people????...who is dumbing us down...?...who is refraining from revealing the "TRUTH"...about "Constant" Alien Activity on the Moon...I am sure a Thorough Researching Scientist of the Moon can reveal the truth...or probably not...due to the "Puppeteering" of Scientists...into mindless Drivel...Grants are Granted to those that bow to the "Status Quo"...so all you "Professional Moon Scientists"...make me want to laugh with great disdain to the ignorance that one develops through "Brainwashed Grants"...I love to watch supposed experts on the subject, chase their tails on this one endlessly...it is quite amusing to say the least..lol...

Yeah you’re definitely correct!
Darn!.... I spent couple of hours on Photoshop looking, expanding matching , etc…

As a photographer I spend hours editing correcting and enhancing pictures.

In my opinion, the photos in this blog are perfect examples of why you should not give a NASA rocket engineer Photoshop to create panoramic views.


Do people actually think NASA is foolish enough to post pictures that would corroborate them not landing on the Moon??

People need to realize all of these photos have been screened before being posted? What we are looking at is none other then an extremely poor job stitching them together. After all, I think these photos are there to give people a general idea of what the moon looks like. I sincerely doubt this is the same quality shown to high ranking officials at NASA or any other entity associated with them!

One of the problems of making a panorama (and that most people, apparently, ignore) is the type of lens used.

A lens that distorts the image close to the camera makes it difficult to make a panorama because of the distortion, the right side of a photo will have a distortion that bends the image to the left, but the next photo will be joined by the left edge, where the distortion is in the opposite direction, making the distortion doubly noticeable.

To avoid or minimise that problem the panorama needs more photos than a panorama made with a lens that does not distort the closest objects, because then we can use the middle of the photos to make the panorama and discard the (distorted) edges.

PS: Why is the thread title "NASA Exposed! Fake Moon Images?"
The question mark on the second sentence and the exclamation point on the first mean that even if the Moon images are not fake NASA was exposed?

Shouldn't it be something like "NASA Exposed? Fake Moon Images?", if in doubt, or "NASA Exposed! Fake Moon Images!" if convinced of the fake?

lets look at a distorted "Singular" Picture of the moon in a singular distorted view of a "Single" Photograph...WOW...we are really stupid...to fall into this "Timeless" trap...let's look at "High Res" Photos/Videos...taken over a specific Time Period...if we can't...we have "Technology" to blame....lmao...lmao...lmao...lmao....we are really "STUPID"....and we love to be duped...welcome to the "Scientific PROOF world"....Proof...is Dynamic...welcome to my 4th Density Realm where "Money" is of no Consequence...and Aliens...are accepted as living proof...we are "Idiots" compared to the "Photos" and "Videos" that we have been exposed to as humans...move on folks...the time is near...we are "GODS"...we have the power and intuition within us to believe and create...if you think I am talking BS...then you need more time to adjust...this is your choice...be well...love and be loved...the identity...of Love...will only awaken you further...

There's no program better then Adobe Photoshop for image manipulation Period! If NASA tries to create a better program for editing their photos, then they are not very savy! It's like trying to re-invent the wheel!

Why spend Millions of dollars to create something that already's been done by another comapany... all NASA needs is $600 for a copy

Did a little research of my own.

As you can see, I've included the exact spot where I found a large concentration of seemingly photoshopped or prop rocks.

First, the real picture:




And now I'll point out the numerous anamolies:

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.

Yeah, I honestly have never doubted that we landed on the moon. It’s all in good fun. Panoramic image says it all.

now if these artifacts showed up in any one single image, then yes... scream insanity, but these are two photos put together at the edges. there are pretty decent programs that do this mostly successful. nothing beats an actual artist in creating them however.


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..


Cheers!

Hi there.. I got the answer for you... Look at the high res images and you'll notice the mountains are not the same. Pay attention to the peaks of the mountains at 12 o clock. In the top picture you will notice 3 peaks behind the foreground mountains, while in the bottom one you only have 2. A good indication that the photograph was taken at a different angle!

What- no comments on my 5 minute photoshop redo of one of the images? I admit it's small, but as of late, Photobucket likes to shrink crap to postage stamp size. What I wanted to set out to prove is that even with outdated software- miracles can be done. Now, if a hack like me can do it... Why cannot NASA with computers so powerful, if I had one installed, I'd pull the power down across the neighborhood, and these people with more degrees than a thermometer they hired to put together images? What's missing here? Excuse the bad pun, but am I not seeing 'the big picture' somehow?

Yes!! good find!

If everybody will see 'D1' and 'D2' they will see evidence that NASA indeed photoshopped out an entire shadow!

OK, here it is for all you incredulous people!

star, gagefather.....(slapping head into palm....)

We've already established that the photos were manipulated, but thanks for your work!

Now....this is important...the photos were merged (with certain anomalies) in order to convey a panoramic view. There is no attempt to deceive, here.

So, you see minor duplication, as ArMap pointed out....because the left edge of the right edge of the next photo will not always align exactly.

First off I would like to say I love your posts Mike.

Now back on topic, It beats the hell out of me why NASA would do that. It is painfully obvious that some sort of tom foolery is going on. Especially given the photographs that you have highlighted. Again it is anyones guess as to why they are doing that.

Keep up the good work. I for one appreciate your effort.

Take care...
