46493531 submission Submission + - World Press Photo Winner accused of photoshopping (news.com.au) Submitted by vikingpower on Tuesday May 14, 2013 @06:44AM vikingpower writes: The winner of this year's World Press Photo award, Paul l Hanssen, is under fire for allegedly having photoshopped the winning picture. The Hacker Factor is detailing the reasons and technicalities for the accusations. ExtremeTech also runs an item about the possible faking. Upon questions by Austrailan news site news.com.au, Hanssen answers his photo is not a fake. The whole story, however, is based upon somewhat thin proof: three different times in the file's Adobe XMP block; this does not necessarily mean that more than one file was used in order to obtain a composite image.
