Photoshopping with care

Whenever I see this picture in the Guardian it bothers me (see left). I don't know if Simon Jenkins has an artificial eye, but even if he does, I don't see why a publicity photo should emphasise it. And if he doesn't, then... well, need I explain. And neither do I know if he is a goa'uld, but now I have my suspicions.

I have tried to fix the picture here so you can see the difference. simonjfix.jpg It's not a great job, but at least he's giving the camera his whole attention. And his eyes aren't glowing any more.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
