BP Photoshops Their Command Center: The Dumb Get Dumbererer

Courtesy of AMERICAblog and The Washington Post, check out the latest is numb-skullery coming from our environmentally responsible friends over at BP.

It seems as if BP has been altering some photography on its website, using some of the sloppiest Photoshop skills I have ever seen. This was obviously done either by an intern or some staffer that happened to have Photoshop on their machine. Speaking as someone who knows my way around Adobe products, this job is nowhere near a professional job. And in the grand scheme of Photoshop image manipulation, it would have been very easy to make a convincing version. Why didn't they just hire a professional to do this work? Being cheap is what got BP into this mess in the first place! They could have paid someone at least $2000 bucks (or less) to touch up these images properly!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not condoning these crooked mess or the corrupt jackasses who are constantly lying. It's just funny to see incompetence come in ways like this. Just goes to show you that no matter how smart or crafty or slick some people say they are...there's always some numb-nuts around to muck it all up.
