Ok, I'm not a graphics guru, but just out of curiosity I imported the "official" White House image into GIMP. It took me exactly 2 seconds to spot this. This is laughable. I think Barrack's youngest daughter must have put this together.

Yes, someone that's been on the forums more than double the time you have is apart of some coordinated attack. Good lord man, are you serious?
Sadly, this is what ATS has devolved into. It used to be a gathering of intelligent, critical minded people scrutinizing things that rationally didn't seem right.
Now it's a den full of paranoid people that won't believe anything except crap that matches their mentality.
It's honestly sad to see what's happened.

Exactly, but you see, I have scanned documents before, but I suppose it depends on the scanners and programs you use, my one doesn't create different layers. I suppose your one does?
The fact that the document so obviously appears fake is one of the greatest mysteries, we all know that if anyone wanted to fake anything they would do it properly, and merging layers is not hard at all, this is one of the reasons I don't think its fake, but I am unsure how the different layers occurred.

A scanned document shouldn't have layers. Whatever that PDF is, it ain't the real deal. I'm playing with it right now and i can put my name there if i want to.

So first of all, I do see what you are referring too...So, here's what I see going on, there's actually two possibilities...as someone already pointed out, the registrar, in order to release the birth certificate, needs to include a stamp showing that their office signed off on it.
To get the multiple elements, as someone already explained, they pull out the book, turn to the page where Obama's certificate is (center element), place a frame around it containing images of the seal and the sign off (surrounding elements), either physically or digitally to signify that the office is officially releasing the record.
These are the multiple elements and you can see them clearly in the file. Also, depending on the software used to scan the document, some programs automatically will separate the different elements, for example, some programs will recognize the text and create a separate element so that the text can be "searchable". I'm not sure what program was used to do this...I'm going to do some more research and see, because just in my short time searching online, I've already seen several explanations that are perfectly reasonable explain the layers. Furthermore, if Obama were going to create a fake document, the person creating would know enough to hide any "evidence".
See two possible explanations here, and here
So it took you an hour to learn how to use Clipping Masks. Congrats. Your explanations fail and your first attempt to debunk the thread failed. Clearly you don't have a clue what your doing or talking about. Now go troll another thread. People keep pointing the finger its OCR its OCR, well OCR works for searchable TEXT layers. These are IMAGE layers. Meaning that these were not OCR ever, at all. I considered it for a brief time, until I read into the OCR process and how it works. Now move along and keep searching the internet. And this thread has really brought the stars out tonight, really.
