#Instagram Is Hiding #Faked Images, And It Could Hurt Digital Artists; #socialmedia

New York (The Verge) — Instagram is hiding faked images, and it could hurt digital artists trib.al/kWt8lqG.

Instagram has begun labeling some digitally manipulated images as false information, and the feature is affecting digital artists and photographers. The platform works with third-party fact-checkers to determine if an image is spreading misinformation.

According to PetaPixel, photographer Toby Harriman spotted the false information warning pop-up on a photo of a man standing in front of some rainbow-colored hills. “As much as I do love it to help better associate real vs photoshop. I also have a huge respect for digital art and don’t want to have to click through barriers to see it,” Harriman wrote.
