    How did I miss that one…

    Beats me how you missed it but you did. Remember you looked into some JPEG file and claimed that the GMT offset was -6:00 rather than -5:00. I pointed out at the time that because it was summer it should have been -5:00. I also pointed out that the METADATA from the Muscatine PDF indicated that the GMT offset was -5:00 instead of your -6:00. (Although I did mention that the -5:00 was probably in error and that it should have been -4:00.) So after weeks of thrashing around you have finally caught up and are now buying the Muscatine METADATA value of -5:00. So you are apparently OK with your change from your previous GMT of -6:00 to your current GMT of -5:00.

    But at the same time you are absolutely sure that the timestamp on Applewhite’s camera was just running behind the real clock time by four hours. So it’s OK with you that Applewhite was photographing the President using a camera with the wrong timestamp?

    Did you know that I’ve had a Casio watch for years that automatically re-sets itself by FM signal from the NIST atomic clock in Colorado every night. What do you want to bet that the timestamp of Applewhite’s Nikon does the same thing ?

    Now that’s what I call INCONSISTENCY…

    Yes, there is a modified date tag for the Photoshop private data object.
    I had a bit of a brain fart with the -5:00 which is indeed the offset for summer in Iowa.

    The camera recorded 8:53AM however the AP website appears to be off 4 hours. I have shown how this is consistent and thus there is no reason to claim that Applewhite’s camera was the culprit.

    Hope this clarifies.
    And I am amazed you still have not found the -6’00 tag.

    No inconsistencies, just a failure to comprehend on your part what causes the AP website to display the time as they do.

    Have you checked out the time tags?

  3. So after weeks of thrashing around you have finally caught up and are now buying the Muscatine METADATA value of -5:00. So you are apparently OK with your change from your previous GMT of -6:00 to your current GMT of -5:00.

    The -6:00 is still there however the creation/modification date for the PDF show that it was created around 10AM EDT… If I had been quicker to notice, this whole ordeal would have been over even sooner.

    Now there is nothing left to support our friend Hermitian’s musings and once again we have shown how diligent investigations can help one to reconstruct a likely workflow which does not require one to ignore that Photoshop assigns the author of the JPG to the author of the PDF when saving…

    And all this can be verified as well, so I am looking forward to Hermitian’s findings…
