Totally. You know how vendors like photoshop corals for their sales fliers? Pretty much every single time. Flier after flier? Over and over. Sale after sale. Some lame acro, cleverly cut and pasted in an effort to garner your affection? Well, my friends. This was my time! My moment! And when all the coral has been fully digested and we are all pleasantly sedated after the feast, this will be my singular instance of ultimate triumph!

This seriously bothers me, the photoshopped corals. Even moreso when they digitally delete the background. This removes any type of scale for size and I think it looks so amateurish.

I really like the blue eggcrate and frag plugs. What's really sad is that so many people comment about how wonderful the corals look when they are doctored up. I can't believe there are so many gullible people out there.

It's sad cause it makes it harder to sell it you don't do the manipulations.

Not quite the same thing cause it not manipulation but I had a guy looking at maxima clams over the weekend and he really liked them but the colors were "not as vibrant as what he finds online". I turned off pumps and gave him a step stool and told him to look at them from top down. All the sudden they looked just as vibrant and awesome as the clams online lol.
