It is not just eraser tool. There seem to be compressions on the right side of the image and a transplantation of a lock of hair over a darker area above the forehead (the latter looks rather amateurish).
if it's so easy then take the first photo of Harper and change it into the second photo. Good luck with that.Photoshopping this hair wasn't that difficult:
i cant follow what you are saying. the main issue is there is absolutely no reason to spend 5 hours in photoshop (and you would have had to use an low res image, which she didnt), when you could have just pasted the ghost boy into the first photo and not messed with the hair at all. even that alone is extremely difficlut with those little fly away hairs sunlit perfectly etc.I agree that's hard to photoshop hair, but this is what we have.

Are we voting? I'm voting #1: the lie.I agree. For myself, I maintain that the hair detail is the ultimate detail that will debunk this mystery, that is explanation #4.
One step along the road.
I just looked for flat white roofed buildings, and picked the first one.
If you turn around there's even a match for the trees behind her (not flipped)
No, it's heading south. The Streetview images are flipped.So the car was heading north, away from the beauty pageant venue.
It looks like the photos were takenAlso, at around 11am, you have the Sun mostly from East, so as she drove North-South, the Sun couldn't be shinning the girl's (and ghost's it seems) right side.
On the contrary, I am pretty sure the photos are genuine, especially after their location has been identified.Now I'm most inclined for hypothesis #3 and #4 of Occam's Razor, as suggested by Mick West.
Forgetting about a boy in the car is also possible, but I wouldn't think forgetting that so likely.
? the photos are hidden from public on her FB now, but Harper was in a black tee with same hair style July 8th after arriving at the facility. July 8th was a friday, so mom likely had to work. 4pm. was just a "prepageant workshop, with Registration starting at 5"The narrative of Melissa driving Harper to the beauty pageant at the time of the photo is no longer supported by the metadata.
I am no expert in girls fashion, but what was so special in her outfit and hairstyle that she wouldn't wear it again, say a few days later? Otherwise, the fact that she was wearing it during the event could simply have added to their confusion about the date of the photo.Harper was in a black tee with same hair style July 8th after arriving at the facility.
i dont think she was confused about the date of the photo. i think she based her "date" on the surrounding photos. occams razor says.. theres really no need for elaborate "what ifs". (there was also a young boy about 8 years old, with a crew cut hugging Harper in one pic at the facility.. that could have been him and the top hair part of the ghost just got pixelated out, since it looks weird even for a girl style).I am no expert in girls fashion, but what was so special in her outfit and hairstyle that she wouldn't wear it again, say a few days later?

Is there evidence for this? It was my understanding that the mother saw the photos that her daughter took in the car only a month later. The photos (in her Facebook?) that you mentioned could have been taken with a different camera.i think she based her "date" on the surrounding photos.

it was established that the camera clock setting was wrong.

even if they were public i wouldnt allow them to be posted here. i would use copyright infringement argument.I don't think those pictures are public and can be posted here, but they could help a lot.
This is interesting. I thought Greg Pocha was one of the experts that had "certified" the pictures as not being faked, based on the news reports where the claim of expert inspection is made, and that he's one expert frequently named. Although his claim should probably be dismissed if he can't provide any concrete reason ("That which is asserted without evidence.....") it might be useful to see his claim, particularly if he's had access to images that aren't filtered through social media. Can you provide a link please?1. The photos are not genuine and this is certified by Greg Pocha. For them to be genuine, they had to be the exact files from the camera. They were further saved, and so their genuineness is gone. Pocha assumes he doesn't know what type of change they have, but admits without explaining why that the pictures might have just been resized...
Maybe I've missed some posts, but wasn't it you that raised the issue of locating the spot, seemingly as evidence that the photos could be fake? In that case it wasn't that the spot couldn't be located, it was that you couldn't locate it.2. Locating the spot doesn't prove the photos are genuine either. This is a fallacious argument well known to philosophers as modus tollens. If the photos are genuine, the location can be verified. This is valid of course. Then you verify the location and affirm the photo is genuine, something unwarranted by the premise, which only guarantees that the location can be verified provided the photo is genuine in the first instance.
If someone owns a Rolls Royce, he or she is rich.
Bill Gates is rich. Then, he owns a Rolls Royce.
I think this example makes it clear, even if I don't know if Bill owns a Rolls...[/
I'm not sure recognising the location is "amazing", certainly not if that's a route she's travelled fairly frequently.3. It seems likely that the camera settings were wrong, at least for the time. Maybe also for the date. Melissa told that she could recognize the location from the reflex on the lenses, something amazing. This plus a wrong date would help a wrong association. I don't think this is critical unless she had changed the date, but in this case why should she change the time? Even if she had changed the date, what for? She wouldn't need the picture to be month-old or to be driving to a pageant for credibility. However, accepting a wrong date might help forgetting about a child in a car on a different occasion...
the link to where he says that is inside this link hereCan you provide a link please?
Thanks Deirdre!the link to where he says that is inside this link here
i'm giving you this link because it's more interesting : )
in the second embedded link you will find him say
his education and credentials listed here, in case you are interested
And in the inside link there are links to the photos, which are apparently resized, but which metadata, including original Exif data, seem to be intact. Interestingly, there is IPTC Keyword: "hodori Oympic (sic) Tae Kwon Do Team"the link to where he says that is inside this link here
If you look at the FB page of the event, there's a picture of Harper with the eventers. There's a young girl looking up at her, with a very long sleevedAnd in the inside link there are links to the photos, which are apparently resized, but which metadata, including original Exif data, seem to be intact. Interestingly, there is IPTS Keyword: "hodori Oympic (sic) Tae Kwon Do Team"
Results of Google search with this keyword suggest it is related to a later event in the area that happened on August 6:
I'd take anything he has to say technically with a pinch of salt. He does not actually have any relevant education and credentials. He talks about the most trivial things are as if they are trade secrets:his education and credentials listed here, in case you are interested
...his education and credentials listed here, in case you are interested
well if he knew anything about ghosts, he would know a ghost of a child is impossible. Young children don't have the psychological makeup yet to get them "trapped" on Earth. he's been watching too many movies and reading the wrong books.I read his credentials there as "none,
Because the kids from the local Tae Kwon Do Studio wear Christmas hats.Just for the curiosity, why from around Xmas?
