Saw this on an introduction thread before it got closed. It pointed out a huge oddity in the mugshot photo. It appears as though the left side of his mouth has been extended, giving him a "Joker-esque" grin, as pointed out HERE.

I'm making no accusations that the photo is indeed photoshopped. Just bringing this to attention to be debated and examined.

They probably photoshopped the blood and cuts and bruises out of the picture.

It could just be that way. It's unsymmetrical but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's shopped. Could be, but I don't see what the gain in that would be.

Hello


The "mugshot" is not a mugshot. It was a picture taken by himself.

And, there have been a big thread on this, on ATS.
Many who gave good ideas.
But, I don't see why they would photoshop it. And, as I mentioned before, it wasn't a mugshot, but a picture taken by himself

The media has been telling us this is his mugshot. Do you have a different source that states otherwise?

Is there any info on the process that the 'independant' photo editor used?
Is it possible that he/she simply used some autofix elements that balance colors and contrast thereby coming across a more aestheticly pleasing image?

Possibly. I figured whe would have lessened the saturation to see the rest of the photo, and then brightened the picture and contrast.

Odd enough though. The picture on the left does not have that smirk like the OP pointed out.

Don't see any manipulation in the photo. If you look at his mouth, you'll see his 'laughter line' to the right hand side of the photo (which would be the left hand side of Laughner's face) is a different shape to the other side. It's simply the way his face works, in that it slightly goes to one side. The exact same thing happens to me not only when I smirk or smile, but also when I raise my voice. For whatever reason the muscles in my face seem to lean to the right hand side.

This is from another thread on the topic, just thought I'd share.

The pictures seem to get altered more and more each passing, so I wouldn't be surprised if his skin was green and he had vampire teeth by next week!

Eye's look reptillian in this one too, maybe a subconscious thing to get people to hate him?

That is the original "mugshot" photo.

Hi, it was my thread that got closed and that is the image I put together after a friend and I went to see what we could find in the mugshot, after we watched a youtube video showing evidence that the picture had been Photoshopped.

**That izzz what was announced as being the mugshot of Jared Loughner. Not a picture he took himself.

Here is the original thread which was closed: www.abovetopsecret.com...

After watching this video on Jared Loughner’s mugshot having telltale signs of having been PhotoShopped: www.youtube.com...

A friend and I decided to take the mugshot and put it into Photoshop to see what we saw when we zoomed in, and the signs of it having been doctored are there. Eyebrows, bridge of nose, neck, cheeks.

Two of the most mind-boggling alterations that we noticed was that 1. his shirt has been outlined in black and 2. his mouth has been made to look like a crazy leer / Joker grin.

~The right side of the corner of his mouth has been extended. If you look you can see the natural endpoint to his smile -and that it’s been extended. It’s impossible for his smile to extend to the endpoint depicted in the picture unless his mouth was slashed at the corner.

Why was his mugshot altered?

Anyone have any thoughts on this? / Any pro graphic designers that can confirm or deny that this picture has been altered?

My friend and I discovered this: This is breaking news! >>>Please spread the word!

Just tossing this in to a few threads for review. (60 minutes segment 1-16-11) Hear what his friends had to say about him. Also clear indication of how he fit into tidy little "nut job" profiles. Some rather startling revelations. (FBI makes sure potential nut jobs take their meds, most assanations are not political etc.) Worth watching even if you have to sit through a few Viagra commercials.

Easy. Fear mongering by TPTB to scare people into thinking it's a great idea to give up our constitutional right to bear arms so that "crazy psycho joker" looking people don't go around popping off rounds. MK Ultra/NWO at it's finest...
