Doctored Pictures Shelved

Updated: 18:03, Tuesday August 08, 2006

 

News agency Reuters has withdrawn more than 900 photographs of the Middle East conflict after finding that a photographer had doctored two of his images.

 

The agency said the fact that two pictures by Adnan Hajj had been manipulated undermined trust in all 920 of his photographs.

 

Reuters ended its relationship with Mr Hajj after it found that a photograph of the aftermath of an Israeli air strike on suburban Beirut appeared to have been manipulated using Photoshop software to show more and darker smoke rising from buildings.

 

It also said that a photograph of an Israeli F-16 fighter over Nabatiyeh, southern Lebanon, had been doctored to increase the number of flares dropped by the plane from one to three.

 

Global Picture Editor Tom Szlukovenyi said: "There is no graver breach of Reuters standards for our photographers than the deliberate manipulation of an image."

 

Mr Hajj told Reuters that the image of the Israeli air strike on Beirut had dust marks which he had wanted to remove.

 

Questions about the accuracy of the photograph arose after it appeared on news websites on Saturday.

 

Several blogs, including a number which accuse the media of distorted coverage of the Middle East conflict, said the photograph had been doctored.

 

Reuters sells images to subscribers around the world, but Mr Hajj's images are no longer for sale after being removed from the company's database.
