Cybersmart | Photoshop or Fake

This week for cybersmart, we have been looking at the effects of media manipulation. Media maniplation is when someone has photoshopped a photo without that persons permission, and have posted it for views, money, and attention. We did this activity to give us an idea of what fake and real photos are.

To help us identify which photos were real or fake, we used image search. This would allow us to find out if the information connected to the image is true. For this create challenge, my partner and I created our own manipulated image, and we chose stonehenge. To make the image realistic we decided to pose in a spot that makes the audience think like we are at the place.

I enjoyed doing this activity because I learned how I can spot which photos are real or fake by using the correct sites.
