  • Photoshop embeds a mark of itself in the hexadecimal code of every image you edit with it, even if all you do is repair the lighting. All Adobe software does this. That is why they were able to show that Obama's "birth certificate" had been tampered with using Adobe Illustrator CS2 - the same software I use to make project logos.

  • Not really. Kind of a matter of opinion though. Being someone who did film photography for years, I look at it this way. If it's something that could have been done during development and printing in film photography, then it's not cheating. The light level is something simple that could have been done during the original exposure of the film, or during the development and printing stage. All are part of photography.

  • Photoshop is part of digital photography and changing the lighting is a trick photographers have been using for ages.

  • Edited... yes. Photoshopped... nope. Originality lost... yes. Does it matter... no.
