Cat with world’s longest neck! — 17 Comments

  1. Sorry, but I spotted the digital manipulation right away. Look at the blocks of pixels on the background either side of the neck – dead giveaway. One way to make it more believable is to set your selection tool to a circle and randomly disrupt the repeating patterns.

    • Thanks Sarah. Thankfully I am not that good at it. I’d rather not be too good because I prefer the old fashioned way 😉 Straight photography.

      What about this? I smoothed out the blocks with the impressionist tool.

  2. I just hope no one ever does try to create a giraffe cat, I wouldn’t put it past some crazy money hungry breeder to try 🙁

    • Yes – fingers crossed nobody takes this idea literally. Money would be the only motivation I’m sure. And maybe prestige in the cat fancy.

  3. Michael you have proved that “PHOTOGRAPHS” do lie ! A fantastic photo that could have created a debate if you didn’t have to confess about the authenticity. Now we realize that there are a lot of “FAKES” on the Internet and hence authentication is very important.Any person can post a article, photo, etc on the internet anonymously or under a fictitious name.Hence knowing the “SOURCE” of the article or news is very important .

    • Absolutely Rudolph, it is quite easy to fake photos even in small ways like changing eye color or making eyes a deeper color or changing the coat color etc. There are a lot of small, less obvious things, one can do that deceive the viewer. It can hard to tell because we are getting used to more extreme images.
