Associated Press cuts ties with freelancer after Photoshop manipulation discovered  
Wednesday, July 13, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
The Associated Press has cut ties with freelancer Miguel Tovar, and deleted most of his work from the AP Images collection, after it was discovered that the photographer had cloned blowing sand from one area of a photo to another in order to obscure his shadow.

The manipulated photo, which was taken near Mendoza, Argentina in conjunction with the 2011 Copa América soccer tournament, can be seen in a gallery on The Sydney Morning Herald's website (a screenshot is below). More information is in a post by The Poynter Institute's Steve Myers.

Thanks to Robert Goddyn and Nick Didlick for bringing this to our attention.
