Photoshop Etiquette

Sometime last month, an Egyptian paper have earned the ire of international media when it had been found out to have altered a picture of some world leaders at the Middle East peace talks at the White House. The original photo above have been altered to look like this:

The Egyptian leader was made to look like "leading" the other leaders (including Obama) through the hallway.
While we've heard quite a lot about celebrity sex scandals done through Photoshop, this is the first time I've heard of a scandal of diplomatic proportions brought about by photo editing softwares. And to think, it's a newspaper that did it. Whatever happened to true pride, eh?
My blog posts are all under the tag FGM. :)
I've only made 12 blogs.
