    They put a long-dead and aged-to-50 Princess Diana with Kate Middleton.
    The last gasp of a dying media icon? Nightline did a story about it and
    the rampant Photoshopping in commercial images.

    I don't know why this is such a big deal. Commercial images have been
    manipulated as long as there have been commercial images. Check the old
    book "The Hidden Persuaders" for an ancient, but similar account of
    photo editing and manipulation in advertising. Same old crap, just a new
    tool set.

    BTW, she's still dead.

    Well, the folks they 'shop in ads have generally signed releases that
    allow such things.

    I doubt Diana ever did.

    Sure, since she'd dead there's probably no legal barrier, but there is
    the matter of taste.

    Agreed on all counts, but this is nothing new. As I said, only the tools
    have changed.
