A graphics designer has concocted the new “long-form” version of Obama’s birth certificate. It is pieced together from who knows what. The background is one piece, the signatures are from something else, etc. I was curious as to why it has taken so long for Obama to release this and thought it looked suspicious online. Even the “roll” shadow on the left that gives it the appearance of being a photocopy from a book is faked. It comes off in a layer. The American public is NOT STUPID! I am so sick of the Obama admin thinking they can lie to us left and right and that we will just accept it as fact. This is CRIMINAL!!!!!
The edit history of those layers can be viewed in Illustrator. https://thesophic.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/the-edit-histo…in-illustrator/
Layers were NOT created with OCR:
I just OCR’d the Birth Certificate at 600dpi. What did I find? Shapes. https://thesophic.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/i-just-ocrd-th…-i-find-shapes/
OCR is a filter/tool for character recognition – not editing, not for creating layers, etc. I ran a scan. This is what OCR deciphered from the birth certificate: https://thesophic.wordpress.com/ocrers/
