I just finished the first major round of updates to the DeTouch project in almost two years. DeTouch is an interactive online tool that visualizes the alterations made by professional re-touch artists. This update doubles the amount of data from re-touch websites and includes downloads for full screen standalone applications in Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Media Matters (a non-profit site dedicated to “documenting conservative misinformation”) reported that Fox News recently featured photos of two New York Times reporters that appeared to have been digitally altered — “the journalists’ teeth had been yellowed, their facial features exaggerated, and portions of Reddicliffe’s hair moved further back on his head”.

In celebration of all the retouch artistry going in the “news” I decided to make a special Fox News edition of my DeTouch project (originally intended to highlight alterations made in model photographs). The brighter the pixel value the more the image has been altered. View resulting images below and the interactive online application here:

The original DeTouch website can be viewed at detouch.org

The applet was built in Processing, and the source code is here.
