Keen-eyed observers noticed something odd about this propaganda photo released by North Korean officials on Tuesday. It seems they tried to make a recent military training drill look a bit more impressive with a little help from our friend, the clone tool.

This certainly isn’t the first time a government agency has used Photoshop to pump up their photos, and it definitely won’t be the last, but it does make you wonder how they think they’ll get away with something like this in today’s day and age. Don’t they know we at PS Disasters live for this stuff?
Many thanks to Laurent for the tip, and to The Guardian for the enhanced images.
