Photo to insert[edit]

Which photo should I use in the article? --George Ho (talk) 04:42, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Any of these seems a plausible choice to me. Acagastya is apparently disinclined to any such image; but historically, we've encouraged used of some image on an article. I don't know what they have in mind as a principle, in this case. --Pi zero (talk) 19:10, 6 July 2017 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Without looking at the EXIF data, we can not decide if it was indeed manipulated with Adobe Photoshop. It can be GNU's Image Manipulation Programme (GIMP). Is the EXIF data available? Any source was able to prove it was Photoshop? If not, please add a {{correction}} template clarifying it could be any software — not necessarily Photoshop.

I don't think this needs to be treated as a big problem. It doesn't say they used Photoshop, it says "Photoshop and similar programs". If you would like it to say "Photoshop or similar programs" (without the emphasis) I think we could do that, because it doesn't really change the meaning, just clarifies slightly.

How would you prefer to have phrased it, in the first place? --Pi zero (talk) 11:40, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Why do we explicitly say Photoshop? It has been 24 hours and removing Photoshop will be a substantial change.

It's used as a example that is commonly recognized; probably the most commonly recognized example, so common that Wiktionary lists photoshop as a common verb. Although I don't think it's problematic enough to justify a {{correction}}, I really would be interested in a suggestion for an alternative phrasing that avoids using such an example — because while we don't respond to flaws in an article by tweaking it forever like Wikipedia does, we do seek to learn from those flaws how to do better in future articles. --Pi zero (talk) 13:06, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
Photoshop is Adobe's Trademark, besides, see this. Here's what I'ld say:
  1. "Regardless of whether they shared Jenkins' opinion, photos of the Governor in his beach gear were added to images of television programs such as Jersey Shore and The Sopranos, movies like Jaws, and one scene from the Oval Office by using digital manipulating applications."
  2. Digitally manipulated images of governor in his beach gear in the tv programmes [...] circulated ... regardless of [...] opinion.

I don't even understand what the issue is here. Removed the tag. Please resubmit if this is still an issue and clarify. --SVTCobra 18:07, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Read the article, and you would understand. You just can't jump onto a moving vehicle.

Not done photoshopping has become ubiquitous and a neolgism, much like xeroxing and hoovering did years ago. The language in the article further takes into account that it is not the only brand. --SVTCobra 17:23, 27 April 2018 (UTC)
