Photoshop is a very powerful tool using it to swop heads is almost never right as reported in Texas.
"School officials in McKINNEY, Texas say they are appalled by altered photos " including heads on different bodies" in hundreds of McKinney High School yearbooks delivered.
Besides the head and body switching, some necks were stretched, one girl's arm was missing, and another girl's head was placed on what appeared to be a nude body, with the chest blurred."
"Minnesota-based Lifetouch National School Studios Inc. said the alterations were "an unfortunate lapse in judgment" by an employee but didn't believe it was malicious. The high school had required Lifetouch to make heads the same size and eyes at the same level in all student photos. "
The request was "unusual and definitely very particular, but that's not to suggest what happened here is acceptable," she said.
"...Lifetouch is taking full responsibility for the altered pictures, about 30 in all, and will pay to have the publication reprinted before the seniors graduate.
Two decades later, Sony is looking to profit off of its image collection. Last year, Sony launched Icon Collectibles, an online operation that sells art-quality reproductions of the images for $300 to $1,700.

Cornell Capa, photographer and founder of ICP (International Center for Photography), died on May 23rd at the age of 90.
Cornell Capa was born Cornell Friedmann in Budapest. In 1936 he moved to Paris, where his brother Andre (Robert Capa) was working as a photojournalist. He worked as his brother's printer until 1937, then moved to New York to join the new Pix photo agency. In 1938 he began working in the Life darkroom.
In 1946, after serving in the US Air Force, Cornell became a Life staff photo- grapher. After his brother's death in 1954, he joined Magnum, and when David 'Chim' Seymour died in Suez in 1956 Capa took over as president of Magnum, a post he held until 1960.
Capa made an empathetic, pioneering study of mentally retarded children in 1954, and covered other social issues, such as old age in America. He also explored his own religious tradition. While working for Life, Capa made the first of several Latin American trips.
In 1974 Capa founded New York City's influential International Center of Photography, to which for many years he dedicated much of his considerable energy as its director.
