Doctoring Photos

The NY Times has a short little slideshow of photographs being altered and manipulated in the news throughout history. There is quite a history of people erasing people from their photos once they fall out of favor (just like homebase!). Since I've been messing around with Photoshop lately and will be teaching it this fall, I found it interesting...there might be a lesson activity in there somewhere! One notable photo that is not in the slideshow is the photo of Lee Harvey Oswald, that the movie JFK takes a close look at and calls out as a fraud.
