Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The photo editing software Photoshop is used by millions of people around the world, and has become a major tool for fashion magazines. Now, though, legislators both here in the U.S. and in Europe are trying to police its use, in cases of publishing false or misleading ads. And researchers at Dartmouth have created a program that can detect how much editing has been done on a photo. Also in the show, the Louvre is replacing it old fashion audio tours and some of its docents with a portable 3D gaming consul made by Nintendo.
