I really didn't want to raise this but the more I think about it the more I realise something needs to be said.
Since when are photo-shops allowed? Replacing one actress' face with another and calling it a creation? Really?
Is that the new lows we have fallen to?
A couple of years ago this trend had picked up on IF for some reason, superimposing other faces onto already existing photos, or merging/morphing photos, so they created a regulation against it. MERGING/MORPHING - NOT ALLOWED
Imp - Regarding to merging/ morphing

4) Merging/ morphing
morphing OR merging faces of celebrities onto existing (original)
pictures from other sources are STRICTLY prohibited on India-forums.com.
It highly violates the copyrights of the original picture and such
activity will not be tolerated! If anyone is seen to engage in such
activity will receive raise in W/L without any further question.
Furthermore, those morphed creations will be removed from the posts,
immediately once it comes into the development team''s attention.
the other hand, there also appears to be a misconception with regards
to the word ''merging''! As stated earlier, the terminology ''merging''
was used on the
[http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1085393] thread to
indicate the fusing of different celebrities'' faces onto existing
original pictures. However, this in no way addresses the ''merging'' of
two different pictures together to make a signature, which is a common
practice in signature making (i.e. fusing together several INDIVIDUAL
pictures without altering the original content).
Hence, if a
member is seen to make signatures by merging individual pictures of
characters from two different shows (which once again differ from
morphing), it in no way breaches with the rules of the A/S section, as
it is an individual voice of an artist, and the development team will
not be able to issue any warning.
