Well this is hilarious: BuzzFeed just caught the Romney campaign exaggerating the size of one its campaign rallies with an altered image. You can view BuzzFeed's full analysis of the image here, but in short the Romney campaign simply duplicated several sections of the crowd, making the audience seem much bigger than it was. And they did a terrible job of it.

For example, take a look at Romney banner hanging in the rafters—if you flip it around, you'll see several letters are duplicated:

After flipping the letters in the Romney banner hanging from the rafters, the altered image because obvious to the naked eye.
Zooming in on and flipping the Romney banner illustrates one of the several alterations to the image. In this case, the letters M and N are repeated, so the banner reads "ROMNMNEY"
It's such a bad photoshop that it kind of reminds you of this spoof of the Iran missile Photoshop, doesn't it?

What a perfect metaphor for the Romney campaign. Sorry, Romnmney campaign.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
