is this pic photoshopped?

Recommended Posts

Just looking for opinion of artists. The image on the mousepad is from a JPG file. A guy says he is selling these mousepads, but I don't believe he actually made any. To my (untrained) eye, it looks like a picture was taken of just the desk (no mousepad), then the mousepad was digitally added later. Clues: - Keyboard corner is "on top" of the mousepad, yet its shadow indicates it's flat on the desk. - uniform lighting on the mousepad - mouse buttons are in the shadow, but the mousepad area next to them isn't - bottom edge of mousepad is thinner in the middle (under the 4) than at the corners Is this legit?

Ask yourself this: If it was a real picture, would the "troll 4 life" text have a *perfectly* uniform shade of red (less a tiny amount of jpeg compression)? The mouse cord was not edited correctly either.

Also, if you just look at "the bigger picture", the mouse appears to be floating. This is just because the shadows are stuffed up, but sometimes these things are so much easier to see when you let your eyes do the work.

Trying is the first step towards failure.
