Nice try
Authored by: kray on Apr 01, '05 12:27:17PM

*Somebody* has way too much time on their hands -- and should have spent more time with Photoshop or Gimp when doing this edit. In the
first photo the horizontal tilt was questionable on the displayed window. Confirmed on the second "photo" -- two windows open and they are
both skewed at different angles. Particularly noticeable on the lower right edge compared to the lower left. Even at a angled photo -- the relative distance would vertically remain the same between windows.

Nice try though. :)

Ah, right there you hit the nail on the head -- I *don't* have too much time on my hands, and I suck at Photoshop :). So what you see are the results of, oh, maybe a good solid 10 minutes of Photoshop mucking about.

If I had time, I would've hired the job out to a pro :)

cheers;

Actually, the iPod images are the same. Besides the other obvious details pointed out by others, what gave it away was the shadow of the TextEdit window *outside* the screen ;-P (Give it a try, open the images on different Firefox tabs and go back and forth...you'll see the shadow, carefully creeping out of the screen... Ring 2 style).

Still a good joke, though.
