A new wrinkle in the debate over manipulation of photos: removing content that may offend readers. The excellent Editorsweblog.org reports on what happened to a photo from the Madrid train bombings.

A couple of quotes from editorsweblog.org:

The Telegraph’s picture editor, Bob Bodman, says:”It’s a question of taste. You can clean up an image if you feel it does not change the context”.

David Viggers, Reuters photo editor, was surprised: “I intensely dislike seeing any of our pictures manipulated in any way.”
