The field of fauxtography is getting even stranger, with new software that modifies images by removing and/or adding “seams” of less important information, allowing images to be stretched and compressed without visual distortion.
That’s impressive enough, but the real jawdropper is how easy it is to completely remove people from photographs, with almost no trace. Stalin would have loved this.
A new technology race is developing: new generation editing tools competing with fraud-detection software.
