Re: No, Your Eyes are Fine; It's the Photo That's F***ed Up

Do they not pay attention at all?! The last auction involving photoshopped pics started quite a controversy the left a bad mark on that auction house....wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) there have been a mandate sent down from the higher ups to prohibit these practices?

Here we go again folks. This specific pic is quite damning and will no doubt spark much more discussion about these establishments. At least on eBay this blatant editing isn’t a problem from my experience. I wouldn’t trust any of their pieces without a personal inspection. It’s really a disservice to the owner and the buyer not to mention the weight that these sales have in valuations for other sellers as the results will undoubtedly be skewed.
