The Washington Post’s Elizabeth Flock wrote about the recent "Photoshop fiasco" involving the Department of Public Works and Highways. Flock detailed how the administrators of the DPWH’s Facebook page had reportedly "Photoshopped three officials into a typhoon cleanup photo." The altered image featuringthe post-"Pedring" devastation on Roxas Boulevard enraged a lot of netizens.

 

Flock quoted the official statement that the DPWH posted on their Facebook page:


"We would like to apologize to Undersecretary Romeo Momo, Director Rey Tagudando and District Engineer Mikunug Macud for whatever inconvenience that may have caused them regarding the photo earlier posted. Rest assured that we shall exert more diligence and prudence in the execution of our mandate to inform the public of our plans, programs, projects and official activities."

 

Flock noted that many netizens had also poked fun at the DPWH by Photoshopping the said officials into dozens of other photos where they didn't belong. It is now being called "The Great DPWH Photoshop Meme." (Check out the photos posted on Jim Ayson’s blog, The Ayson Chronicles: A Life Online.)

 

For the record, the three officials in the photo have said that they didn’t know about the DPWH Facebook page administrators’ decision to post the "Photoshopped" image.
