This picture is photoshopped....

What picture? Hah.. caught you! The post title is because of this little story about the French Parliament considering a new law that will legally require anyone publishing images that are photoshopped to state they are photoshopped. In other words, they want you to know something has been airbrushed.

Incidentally, I just committed trademark infringement by using the word "photoshopped". Adobe says so,
The Photoshop trademark must never be used as a common verb or as a noun....

Trademarks are not verbs.

Correct: The image was enhanced using Adobe® Photoshop® software.
Incorrect: The image was photoshopped.
You have been warned! If you're wondering how I know this I googled it! ;-)
