What if there were a tool for detecting image manipulation?
Marco Martinez said (30 May 2012):
This is short-sighted approach. I would like to see how everyone agrees on what could be considered manipulation. Is manipulation diffetent than adjustments? What are considered appropriate adjustments? I don't think any competition is judged based on RAW files or the negative if using film. Personally, I don't care how an artist's vision is represented by the photograph. I want to be moved by someone's art. I don't care about producing something using someone else's guidelines. To hell with them. As a photographer, I follow my vision. So I say, go ahead and build yourself software that conforms to your narrow way of thinking. You are not measuring art -- it's quality or asthetic. You are merely putting things inside the little box you have defined. Art cannot be contained. Art cannot be rationalized. Art can only be understood through our senses. What moves you and inspires you is art.

To a point I agree with you. However the scope of the article was photojournalism. Different ethics for different areas of photography.
Marco Martinez said (31 May 2012):
You are correct, David. I guess I was thinking about how this would be applied to other areas of photography indiscriminately when the lines are not as clear as in journalism.
