Kate was very critical of McKmama for allegedly altering her photos.
But did Kate do the same?
An analysis of many images — particularly those taken when Joshua was said to be terminal — revealed that most had a blue/green cast and washed-out colors, which tend to make Joshua look unwell.
The blue/green cast is very apparent when the image is viewed side-by-side with a color-corrected version. We did not alter the saturation levels; only the color balance.
When color-corrected to remove the blue/green cast, Joshua’s coloring looks more normal, albeit rather pale.
Here are a few comparison images.
Note that the blue/green tint is not present in many older images from 2012 and earlier.
So did Kate alter Joshua’s images to make him look sicker?
We did examine the exif data on confirmed originals. Picasa — an image storage and editing program — was listed in the exif data. It’s possible she used this to edit the images or she may have simply exported the images without editing them. It’s impossible to know for certain.
So for now, the jury’s out on this one.
NOTE — One comparison image has been removed pending legal consult to ensure it’s covered under fair use doctrine.
