Default Re: Is "Copy-Paste" allowed? What's your opinion?

Hi Daniel,

I've been seeing more and more of this in the past year and it seems pretty clear to me that it is outside the TE TOS. I'm not a "purist" by any means and use Photoshop to post-process my own RAW images. However, I draw my imaginary ethical line at adding things into a scene that weren't there in the first place. So many dramatic sunset skies added to a foreground that was front or side lit. So many huge and perfectly exposed moons supposedly captured at 17mm focal length. Most of these stick out like a sore thumb. I try to report these as I see them but there is almost no way for the mods to catch them all. I guess more disturbing is how many of these get rave reviews by even the more senior members of TE.

My personal opinion is that they shouldn't be allowed on TE given the current TOS.
