Bild.de: Hold me

You have to give a hand to the tabloids, sometimes they just add stuff to stories for the heck of it.

Photoshop Disasters

This German tabloid is reporting on a farmer who let pigs rot in his attic, which is terrible and/or it’s the international competition for Storage Wars. In either case, the three-armed man made handcuffs a touch tricky when police finally got a hold of him.

Thanks Hans! You could have seen the original on Bild but they recently changed the image.

    He seems to have been cut-and-pasted with some feathering. See his left shoulder? And his hair?

      Obviously – and the foliage in front of his shoulder is not the same plant that’s behind him. The foreground photo was taken at close to noon. And there is a different background between his right arm and torso.

      There’s more.

    Evidently someone at Bild has noticed, and responded by cropping the picture to a head and shoulders shot…

    With the new image on the site of Bild you can see clearly how they’ve pasted the man in front of a farm.

    I am so sad and disappointed…I never, ever, thought that Thing would associate so closely with someone who would let pigs rot in his attic. He is not the hand I thought he was.

  • traveller

    The crime he is accused of is horrible and disgusting. The photoshopping is a disaster. Yet, all I can think of is — how do you get pigs in an attic?

    • Janet Cox Tuhey

      First thing I thought of.

      I admit, my mind went there too….

      its a bad translation- it should be a barn, not an attic

    If you expect flawless Retouches from Bild.de, you’re gonna have a bad time.

    Not a PDS. That is Frederick Sykes’ brother….

    This might not be a PSD – he’s so huge, how do we know someone isn’t hiding behind him? Could even be his rather large son…
