Yesterday, I had to upload a photograph to the US Embassy web site. It rejected it for "brightness/contrast wrong". Now, I'm white (except in official paperwork) and the background must be white by regulation. So (and an embassy official confirmed this unofficially) the web site has "problems".
Easy solution. Photoshop. Asian. Photo accepted.
So what if they challenge me on this? "Well, officer. The photo was taken last week, and last week I was asian."
... pause, drawn breath, ...
What happens next?
No, I will not be releasing the photograph. I already look like a [insert-criminal] without your photoshop help.
