Update: Thumbnail image added
Our friend Hermitian is still struggling with the work flow relating to the Muscatine Journal PDF. While the ‘author’, ‘title’ and subject tag may have caused some confusion as to the true author, I have shown how a simple importing of the jpeg provided by AP creates J Scott Applewhite as the author.
Now Hermitian is excited that he has found an embedded thumbnail in the file. Again, as I will show, the simple workflow explains all this. See the ’embed page thumbnail’ part 🙂
Hermitian: To the contrary, for NBC’s claim to be true, the Muscatine technician would have had to strip all the METADATA from “ap_obama_certificate_dm_110427.pdf” and then with Photoshop CS2 create entirely new METADATA for “4db82608b486f.pdf”. Thus he would have to type in the lines which credit the AP, Scott Applewhite, the AP caption writer and all the references to Washington DC and NOT enter a single line which identifies the Muscatine Journal, himself and the city and state of Muscatine Iowa. And the lines that credit the AP, Applewhite, the caption writer, and Washington DC all begin with the label /</photoshop: embedded within the METADATA.
I just did the experiment Hermitian. You should have done so as well 🙂 Diligence…
Hermitian is still unfamiliar with the metadata of the AP JPEG. He foolishly extract the metadata from the PDF but forgets that the embedded JPEG contains a lot of metadata…
