It's just wrong to create more than is there.
Take Michelle Obama's eyes. Her right eye squints happily when she smiles. And let's face it, her face is very well-known and recognizable.
So when you, Ebony Magazine, hire someone to cut the image of her left eye and reverse-paste it onto her right, um....
It STOPS LOOKING LIKE HER.
And don't get me started about the NY Times video I sent to Shakes. Taking four fashion models and morphing them into one picture is just stupid. Not to mention the whole unreal image of femininity and beauty that image-modification promotes.
My real worry is that late at night on deadline you'll start pasting the wrong Michelle and just completely gross us all out.
