    I just saw a picture of the book Private Parts and I just realized how bad the Photoshopping of Howard's head on someone else's body really was. I mean it is Howard's Photoshopping abilities bad. The skin tone of the body is about three shades darker than Howard's face and neck.

    I still can't believe he tried to pass it off as his body and people believed him.

    I don't think Photoshop was even a real thing yet when Private Parts came out. This would have been a literal cut-and-paste job.

    I think they had software to play with images back then. Just not as sophisticated. But that is probably why they had Howard wear that tight necklace so that they could paste together the two images without it looking jarring with skin on skin.

    OK, thanks. I figured it came out around the same time as the first digital cameras.

    Although, the traditional way was still probably better due to the tech they had for computers. Someone else might know better than I, though.

    I always assumed that was meant to be a noticeable joke, pasting his head on another body and so badly that is was obvious. Are we just missing the joke after too many years of Howard's nonsense?

    The O.P. shouldn't be around children, Robin. That's all I'm going to say.
