Now there’s a headline to grab your attention: Nude photos shock teacher
The print version of the article included a screenshot of the dating page, but to summarise: Small town teacher takes naked photo (raunchy? or one of those “before I started my diet” pics? who knows) and emails to a friend. Someone (the friend?) then doctors a dating website page to include the photo and sends it to the school principal with a complaint.
You might fall out with your friends, but trying to get them fired… now that’s low.
The teacher worked at Kawerau College, that’s a high school – teenagers etc. You’d think the IT teacher would have been able to tell the Principal just how easy it is to doctor a screenshot. Obviously not.
He could not explain how the topless photo had been superimposed to make it look as though it was on the woman’s dating website but the school had ascertained that the photos were not on the woman’s dating page.
- Get the nude photo, don’t have one? don’t worry, there are plenty of amateur photos online, pick one that works
- Pull up a dating page using the Firefox browser with the Firebug extension installed
- Make the necessary changes to the html, reduce the size of the Firebug window and take the screenshot
You could always take the screenshot and then use Photoshop to put in the alternative picture but people are getting very good at spotting fakes manufactured that way.
It’s sad that this young woman has been betrayed by her so called friend but sadder still that the authorities didn’t have the internal expertise to identify how this nasty trick could be played and therefore be one step nearer exonerating her.
