    Reuters withdraws photograph of Beirut after Air Force attack after US blogs, photographers point out 'blatant evidence of manipulation.' Reuters' head of PR says in response, 'Reuters has suspended photographer until investigations are completed into changes made to photograph.'

    LOL this is what you call fake bullshit designed to make Israel appear as if it's been given a rough time in the media. The "photographer" is probably pro Israeli.

    Yes, and it looks like whoever was using it, had no idea what they were doing.
    Any photographer who's at least spent a week in photoshop should know how to utilize the clone tool without making it look so piss poor, UNLESS it is intentional.
    Not only that, but the original photo already looked devastating enough.
    I kind of agree with DemBruceLeeStylez, except I don't know if the photographer has the agenda, or the editor, or whoever assisted in publishing the material. The article covering the incident specifically mentions that the photographer is already under suspicions for being responsible for a number of staged photos in Qana, which fuels the Michelle Malkin (Neocon Hot Air Blog and Lunatic Fox News Opinion Monger) conspiracy theory that Qana never even happened.
    BTW - Neil Gabler backhands Malkin's opinion mongering on Fox News: http://www.crooksandliars.com/posts/...pinion-monger/

    Thank ya'll.
    Makin' me blush.

    DemBruceLeeStylez, the font is called Base02.
    I've used other variations, but that specific one I'm using is Base02.
    The smaller font with the Base02 font is a simple bold arial font.
    Here's where you can download the base02 font:

    That is so cool man massive thanks!! I found a few good ones on this site before if you want to check it, http://www.grsites.com/fonts/ . You've got some really wicked Photoshop skills dude honestly. I put this picture together for a letter I wrote to the Scholars for 9/11 Truth, asking them to see if they can get a debate set with Noam Chomsky;

    ^ What do you think of that dude, and what would you do differently/add etc?



    Also I was checking 911blogger's blog role and I couldn’t find "Cloak & Swagger" , you should ask Dz to add it because it totally gets my vote, the content is even better then the fantastic graphics. Actually maybe you could start doing some graphics etc for 911blogger, that would be very cool. You've got some raw talent man!

    Thanks DBLS, that site you linked has some good fonts, and they don't appear to be zipped, which makes for less of a hassle when loading them.
    As for the Chomsky and 9/11 truth debate pic, I can't say I'd do much to change it.
    If I'd change anything, It would be to widen the frame, and behind Chomsky have a pic of at least 3 of the scholars, preferably already in a group standing side by side if possible. I envision them having very serious expressions too, but I think that'd be asking too much.
    The font is simple and direct, not too flashy, and that's good.
    Something else you might want to consider is doing a vertical one, that's almost the size of a movie one poster. Use the same elements you used in the wide one, but adjust for a vertical layout.
    Oh, and don't forget to add scholars website as well, along with a couple other relevant sites, along with a possible logo or two, like the scholars logo in the bottom corner.

    I'll look into it, I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
    Thank you.
