A while back we shared a video in a post titled “The Cliche of Enhancing Images in Movies” that compiled clips from movies and TV shows in which “photo experts” did absurd and impossible “enhancements” to photos and videos in order to solve mysteries. The above clip from British sitcom Red Dwarf pokes fun at this cliche, and takes it to the extreme. Enjoy.

Garrett Murray over at Maniacal Rage has a funny project called CS4 Crash Reports. He comes up with the strangest things to send to Adobe when his Photoshop CS4 crashes and asks him to describe the problem that occurred.
Here’s another gem:
I’ve never had a problem with CS4 crashing on me, but Firefox and Cyberduck do plenty of that.
Last week the web was abuzz with excitement over a demo Adobe created for their upcoming “Content Aware Fill” feature. Well, it didn’t take long for parody videos to spring up, mocking how easily Photoshop will soon be able to completely create new “realities”. The above video is one such parody, ending with this gem:
There you go. A wonderful tool, and Adobe Photoshop again proving that everything you see is probably a lie.
Reminds me of the PhotoSketch technology that we covered last year.
