Photoshop: Memories - the way we want them

While we all understand that photographs aren't always what they purport to be, one wonders what the future of photography will be, once we get to a point where nearly flawless alterations are widespread enough where it's difficult to say that any given photograph actually chronicles a real event. People have already taken to discounting photographs that challenge their beliefs, citing the ease of forgery as a reason.

I suspect we'll get to the point where you'll see T-shirts saying: "Reality is for people who haven't mastered Photoshop."
