BP sucks at Photoshop



Blogger John Aravosis of Americablog News discovered that British Petroleum's main site on Monday looked and little funky and that the company can't even unethically manipulate a photo properly:

I guess if you're doing fake crisis response, you might as well fake a photo of the crisis response center. Why do they need a fake photo at all? Don't they have a real crisis response center they could have used?
The Washington Post reports that, "Scott Dean, a spokesman for BP, said that there was nothing sinister in the photo alteration and provided the original unaltered version. He said that a photographer working for the company had inserted the three images in spots where the video screens were blank."

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Here's a zoom of the professional job.



That's what happens when you have a company run by Smurfs. Seriously.

I hope they're better at oil drilling than at Photoshop. Oh, wait...
