Altering images isn't new as this site proves. Absolute best denial that we did it on purpose and we did it on purpose in the same obfuscating paragraph, was from New York Times Magazine.
"The cover photograph in The Times Magazine on Sunday rendered colors incorrectly for the jacket, shirt and tie worn by Mark Warner, the former Virginia governor who is a possible candidate for the presidency. The jacket was charcoal, not maroon; the shirt was light blue, not pink; the tie was dark blue with stripes, not maroon. The Times's policy rules out alteration of photographs that depict actual news scenes and, even in a contrived illustration, requires acknowledgment in a credit. In this case, the film that was used can cause colors to shift, and the processing altered them further; the change escaped notice because of a misunderstanding by the editors."
The Image Science Group research focuses on digital forensics, image analysis, computer vision, and human perception.

Absolutely fascinating.
