A great article on the infamy of photoshopped pictures, including 7 that have had the biggest impacts:

Does anyone still believe that the camera never lies? With Photoshop, you can now make a picture speak any thousand words you want, and it will take a cynical attitude and a skilled eye to tell whether any of them is true.

While that might be a creative opportunity for artistic photographers and designers, for news editors, it can all be a bit of a nightmare ? and for readers too when the photos skip the newspapers and land straight in your mailbox.
Check it out if you're at all interested in photography, photoshop, or just how people get fooled.
