Did you know that a bug in the world’s greatest image editing software – Adobe Photoshop – can reveal a lot more about your anatomy than you wished it to? Read on to find out how.

One fine day, you decide to have some fun (really!) and shoot some naughty (the extent of which depends on the amount of fun you wish to have) pictures of yourself (+ various anatomy). Later, using Adobe Photoshop, you decide to crop out the private anatomy, save the rest, and post your brand-new picture on the web. A few hours later, you discover to your horror that the whole world is ogling at the very anatomy you wished to hide – because someone at Adobe forgot to tell Photoshop that it needs to update the preview thumbnail (which is stored as part of the image file) whenever you cropped the picture.

Ouch!

Did you really find it on the web [ via DI or whatever ] or is it a FIR from a victim :))
