I don't know if anyone has pointed this out yet but BP have admitted that they PS'd the image ... so what's with the title of this post?

It is weird yes but there's nothing to see here.

[Sorry if someone has pointed this out before but I didn't think it worth the read to find out if someone indeed did.]

I like how you laid everything out....When it comes to BP we are dealing with well known liars... and everybody here says it's their fault for this "disaster" and they keep trying to cover up how bad it is and they keep lying about how hard they’re working on trying to fix it…

But when I see a thread like this that catches BP manipulating imagery, only a handful come out and accuse them outright, but the vast majority of these posts... I haven't counted but it looks easily over 90%, either rushes to the defense of BP or down plays it like it's no big deal

So if BP is caught or accused of trying to hide or downplay how bad this disaster is everyone here comes down on BP, but if BP is caught or accused of manipulating the imagery of this disaster everyone rushes to their defense...

Could this be because it’s more important for people to believe the images of this disaster that are provided by BP than believing BP?

I do think in this day and age, it would be pretty simple to fake "supposed" live feeds. We are pretty technologically savvy these days.

We really do think that don't we and still people fall for obvious photoshopped images and film.
Still they let themself be fooled.
We are not that savvy as we think we are.

It's not just BP's fault, it's all our faults.
For letting this happenm and letting this go on as long.
We are all bitching about BP en Obama and what ever, but we are the ones that let it get this far.
If somebpody is to blame it is us.

Publicity photo = Advertisement = Manipulated. No conspiracy here.

So I am curious what this photo is an advertisement for?

What are they selling with this picture?

Image of BP. It's the very definition of publicity media. You rarely see 'news' or 'documentary' photograph used as a publicity shot. It's just the way advertisement works.

"BP has shown it has NO morals, no honesty, no honour...... "

As I remember it BP were quick to take responsibility for the disaster, legitimately so, despite leasing it to a third party company (who were directly in charge of day to day operations) and I am not aware of any dispute raised by them regarding this; they fully accepted their obligations. Now, they may not be handling it as well, or as quickly as we would like, but I would rather their specific expertise were employed in this disaster rather than the government, or military or anyone else - and for the time being I want them to concentrate on this rather than public relations. Every mistake costs more than money, and they are on a world stage - there are highly relevant obstacles involved; such as depth of the leak, the availability of highly specialised technical gear and further risk to human life.

"BP will do and say whatever they figure will give them a better bottom closed. "

as will any company in this modern world, which is why things need to change - on a worldwide scale, not just one company.
BP's best money making strategy would be to wrap this up as soon as humanly possible, to everyone's reasonable satisfaction giving them the appearance of being capable, effective and responsible.

"They got the lockerbee bomber sprung back to libiya in return for a huge drilling contract IMHO.After that who can claim to moral high ground?
This guy was a murderer of hundreds on that plane....."
The Lockerbie bomber was released by the Scottish governing body, not by BP. There are, I agree, questions as to why BP have benefitted so much from continued good relations with the Libyans, when ex British Justice Minister Jack Straw reportedly put pressure on the Scots, and when everybody else involved found the release of al-Magrahi outrageous.

ON TOPIC: Every company who produce any kind of printed/digital literature, edit out any incomplete, damaged or less attractive images. If this photo had any specific meaning, it might be reasonable to criticise it; but it's irrelavant.

Manipulation 101:

Only one person on 5 pages of discussion nailed it.

"Is it fixed yet"

Oil continues to pollute the Gulf waters. This photoshop manipulation does mean something. It will have a psychological effect. BP is setting us up to think "no big deal" in an effort to save its business.

This whole mess is psychology 101. Seeing is believing even if we find out later that what we saw was faked. Now we have a new image burning in our brains... BP will no longer fake the command center video displays. Whoopee! All this just in time for the test results of the new cap they installed, the seepage coming from a distance away from the well, and their plan to continue getting oil from this well. They can do this because people can be manipulated into believing just about anything. The experiement will uncover what works and what doesn't.

BP has been showing us the "we are not perfect card" far too long for us not to notice something bigger is in the works! The Gulf trajedy is now a psychology experiment. How far can you be pushed in a controlled direction?

The well is not fixed yet and someone is getting a bonus for this photoshop incident, while the scapegoat will get fired! That means the experiment was a success because anyone who has a finger in that mess knows that all it takes to manipulate the masses is an admition something is wrong and a declaration that it will be corrected to cover the original problem's no-resolution. Who cares about a faked image, anyway when the Gulf incident is just a psychological experiment on whether perception can be used to control popular opinion? "Is it fixed yet" doesn't appear to be as important as BP admitting an OOPS!

Too many oops for me when the eyes have turned toward our fresh water supplies (lakes and glaciers) and protected nature reserves for oil. If it is really that important to manipulate our psychology, does this mean we are running out of oil or is it something bigger than that on the planning table?

You can't tell me that BP with its team of experts that are supposed to be better than anything else we have to shut down that well, did not know of the faked images posted for the world to see on the internet? Are we really that gullible? Obviously, we don't care as long as BP gets us that oil and we don't see a price hike at the pumps. I guess it's a go on our fresh water supply and nature reserves because admitting an oops while maintaining a low price appears to be the ony thing people truly care about.

Freedom? Knowledge? Integrity? I guess the social experiment worked after all when our banner reads, "WHO CARES?"

I care, because it is these oil bastards that sent my sons and daughters to a war that has been sending them back in a body bag or straight jacket. I care, because I live in one of the last places in the world that living is good and I can still take care of myself, unless the developers for corporate giants come in to change that. I care, because when I have a rare moment of putting my trust in someone, I think I deserve to know at the end of the business day, that honor was deserved. Sometimes, I just care because if the affected shoe was on my foot, I would be making headline news and not in a good way. Is it fear or greed or something else entirely that makes us no longer care about dishonesty?

Faked BP command center? Is it worthy of being considered the biggest insult to our intelligence? I happen to think it is and "oops, we allowed yet another employee make a mistake" just isn't good enough anymore.

Here is more food for thought. Another faked image. This one of the top kill effort.

bp fakes another oil spill photo

Horrible job, and what where they trying to hide or manipulate?

On a side note: The video pros on this tread are correct. It is terribly easy to fake a live stream with data overlay. Anyone could give it shot using a webcam, Ustream and a program like CamTwist (or Webcammax for windows). Setup your cam & fake data, then merge the two in the software before it pushes out. That's just my humble resources talking, I'm sure BP would have the resources to use better equipment.

I just saw this story on CNN.

It wasn't actually the main story...the reporter was talking about how BP is reporting that rumours of their CEO's retirement are false.

"BP is reporting that these rumours are false which probably means it is true, how can you trust a company that is faking photos for their webpage..."

Caught me by surprise actually.

I can't help but to wonder ........ maybe the ones that are doing the editing, the ones with their hand on the mouse physically editing the photo's, are purposely making these obviously shoddy photo's in hopes that it WOULD be seen as fake. Maybe the "little guys" in BP are just like regular humans, maybe they have a conscience.

Especially considering leaving that laptop GAME unedited !!!

Just a thought.

Well, that would be the way to do it, right? They have non-disclosure agreements and gag orders, etc. The only way to get the word out would be through indirect methods.

They're trying to hide reality and maintain the illusion
They're trying to manipulate the public into believing their altered reality (illusion)

And when they get caught doing it, most here defend these actions or down play them. Which means most here are involved in managing the image of BP’s alteration of reality to the public, managing the illusion. And when certain components of the illusion-creating apparatus slips up and gets exposed, BP’s minions on ATS immediately rush in for damage control to defend the integrity of the illusion-creating apparatus… that’s because these minions are the online blog component of BP’s illusion-creating apparatus.

Ya know I've been looking at that computer screen and wondering if it is internal software. I can see that being the software program's "home" screen. With each structure or area being a navigation tool. I've worked for big companies before and I believe this feasible. But my question would be, if this is company software, what the heck are they doing looking at the Business Marketing stuff while the top kill effort is going on?

From BP's website:

Business marketing comprises a variety of business-to-business activities: Wholesalers and Resellers, BP Marine, Air BP, Aral Flüssiggas, European Fleet Services and BP Bitumen

There was another one again apparently. Shot from inside a chopper that has horrible photoshopping in it.

That mentality, at least of lately: "there's nothing to see here" is what they seem to applying to the ROVs. Let them sit in the same spot for hours or days and do nothing..."there's nothing to see here."
