  Photoshop Art Fakes
van gogh and star bucks
Over at Worth1000.com there's a competition to make famous works of art look fake. The idea is to use Photoshop to manipulate paintings from any period by changing or adding details to the work.
So there's a lot that are quite obviously changed, but there are others that are more subtle. The work above is obviously Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace at Night with a Starbuck's coffee sign out the front. But it took me a minute or two to work out what was changed on the painting below.

Of course I felt stupid after I saw the change! I was looking for a new product on the table I think. See Vermeer's real Milkmaid.
See all entries in the Photoshop competition.
#Note.. Adobe Photoshop is a computer graphics editor that is used by many graphic designers and digital artists. It's great for manipulating and creating images on the computer. It's quite expensive, but I think Adobe also has a cheaper version of it.
