Libya: The revolution will be Photoshopped

    Gaddafi! Ah waiyv mah pravat parts in ur generahl direcshone!

  2. Hey! Those copies of Photoshop are clearly licensed to the government of Libya! EULA violation!

  3. Hmm, XP. One would have thought they had upgraded by now.

    Still, nice to see a graphics shop without a fruit in sight.

  4. One question I see nobody asking is; why do they draw something as simple as caricatures in a complex application as Photoshop. Even Widows Paint might be considered up to that task, and that would have already been installed on the PCs anyway. Maybe they don’t know any application other than Photoshop, implying that they were trained in its use. I’d like to know who trained them.
