Additional field(s): Photography/Imaging (& Graphic Arts)
English term or phrase: fauxtography
Definition from Wordnik:
(Internet) Misleading presentation of images for propagandistic or otherwise ulterior purposes, involving staging, deceptive modification, and/or the addition or omission of significant context.

Example sentence(s):
  • Snapped Shot speculates that the evidence suggests Shana may have been killed instead by recoil from an anti-tank weapon – ie, a friendly fire killing by Hamas -- and the car was set on fire to destroy the evidence of what had really happened. Is this yet another full-blown media 'fauxtography' scandal -- with Reuters once again in the manipulated frame?
  • Times Public Editor Calame ignores the impact of "fauxtography," including this Times photo of a dead man, later seen walking around Blog camera
  • 10 examples of Fauxtography that you should examine so that you realise that pictures do lie. Not a sheep

छलपूर्ण छायांकन

Definition from own experience or research:
अरब-इसरायल युद्ध में अस्त्रों के प्रयोग को बढ़ा-चढ़ा कर दिखाने के लिए छलपूर्ण छायांकन का खूब उपयोग किया गया था, जैसे यदि दो मिसाइल दागे गए थे तो तकनीक के माध्यम से चित्र में चार मिसाइल दिखाए गए।

Example sentence(s):
  • आज के इस कंप्यूटर युग में किसी चित्र पर भरोसा नहीं किया जा सकता और विश्वास के साथ नहीं कहा जा सकता कि उसमें छलपूर्ण छायांकन का उपयोग तो नहीं किया गया है। -
