photoshopped. come on. ..

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 03:32 PM

I'm sorry. I'm dumb. I thought it was a regular update. . .

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 03:34 PM


 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:29 PM

Gimme a freakin break. That was DEFINETELY photoshopped.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:35 PM

what the heck? cute overload labels on file cabinet? plus a kitten with poor quality edges? definitely a photoshopped product, man. in all means, though, happy to see that new attachments are accepted again.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:39 PM

Wow, the Cute Master's standards MUST be dropping if he's allowing this CRAP into his site. Geez, this was SO obviously PHOTOSHOPPED.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:41 PM

I agree with Theend. If Cute Master retires, i take over!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:46 PM

Whoa whoa whoa—hold on People! I made the image in order to make the announcement about the mailbox! Geeshe.

P.S. Other updates have Photoshop additions, such as "server costs" added to the infamous donkey tip jar post, etc. You must chill!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:48 PM

Now you say so! Was it photoshopped?

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:50 PM

I sense a severe case of multiple personality disorder with these comments. But other than that, I think it's cool that Meg (that's a *she* not a *he*, MPD) went to the trouble to create this picture to post with her message! Geez, I thought all the "photoshop finger pointers" were on SOMC.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:52 PM

Just saying. Look at the factors: No way the animal could have gotten into the file cabinet. #2, none of the papers are scattered. a pup would definetely do that. #3,it isnt as cute if its man made, for cripes sake! Geez, i just wanna see some REAL cute here

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:56 PM

Hey, lay off. I think it's cute!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:57 PM

Emma, some of the cutest things are just barely captured on camera! if its man made, which sometimes it is easy to see, i think it drowns the cuteness geez

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 04:59 PM

meg, just keep up the wonderful work! i thank you for each and every smile!

chets momma
 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:00 PM

The idea is cute, but the suspicious photoshop action sort of lowers the rating. Not pointing fingers, but boy its sort of a regular chat room in here, replys minutes apart! lol

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:01 PM

To Meg: I saw this really funny clip once: It showed a dog in a laundry basket. If you can do this, can you do that? Thanks for the cuteness

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:04 PM

Fear not Meg. I got that it was photoshopped for a purpose and think its cute as heck.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:06 PM

Hey! knock it off, will ya, guys? KittenFrog looked photoshopped, but it was still cute! You rock, Meg! Thanks for all the squeals and heads blowing up! *BOOM!*

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:09 PM

Meg, when you use photoshop to make a picture with a point, put that IN so this wont happen again. >_< It's a chatroom in here! It's still cute anyways! GO MEG! *waves a banner with the word "MEG" on it)

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:15 PM

Oh settle down people! That photo is exactly what I imagined the Cute Overload offices to look like, so don't burst my bubble.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:21 PM

Sarah is right. We have better stuff to do then complain about photoshopping. Y'know, i sorta imagined a CO office to be more cluttery tho, and pictures all over the wall and dogs and kitties all over the place. :) like that picture of the cheeseball kitten.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:24 PM

So lets go comment on somthing ELSE! LOL JK

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:25 PM

Holy cute kitty! Who ARE these people who get so bent out of shape about whether stuff is "real" or not? Relax! Be entertained! Get over it!

By the way, I'm totally decorating my office in "Cute Overload" style. I have no idea how I'm going to paint the wall that way, but it must be done.

Meg, you are a genius. I hope you make money on your brilliant site. Use my (and all my friends') insatiable need for wiseacre cuteness for your benefit!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:33 PM

It is cute. The photoshopping, to me, is a cute idea. I like the wallpaper- it's the same as the blog.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 05:35 PM

GUYS! CHILL ALREADY! enjoy the masterpiece that Meg has labored to bring to CuteoverloadTM. Though it looks like its been photoshopped, it might not have been! CRIPERS. Thanks for the work and results, Meg!

At long last, the Boy Who Cried Photoshop has a chance to be right. Woo and hoo.

So yeah, good eye, the kitty is borrowed from an earlier CuteOverload post, and casts an iffy shadow here. Applause. But it's an announcement (like the Tip Jar post) so I think we might allow our proprietor some license.

FYI, I'm going to continue to GIMP my digital photos too (until I come up with something to officially submit, and even then I'm likely to crop, scale & adjust).

And btw I *like* the chat-roominess of this place.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:01 PM

Me too.

Wild Geek
 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:04 PM

Yes, yes, yes, it's a very cool pic and suits its purpose perfectly. Meg definitely knows what to do and when to do it (Do you contract out your decorating skills, Meg? lol) Some people don't appreciate the thought and time and talent it takes to find the pics and come up with captions/comments... and in this case, decorate the picture appropriately. :-)

Okay, here's a new game. How many posters here have the same email address? And now, match the names up with their opinions. I no longer think it's MPD - it's just someone with waaaayyyy too much time on their hands.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:04 PM

c'mon guys, it's *supposed* to be a big fat "duh" that an old photo that's already been posted here a long time ago was photoshopped in a CUTE way for our amusement! now act amused!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:05 PM

No photoshopping...whoops! i suck at that! lol

Wild Geek
 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:05 PM

Guys, just calm down. The picture had to be done, and we dont want to discourage meg. Photoshopping has helped some great pieces of art and is now letting unheard-of options and effects. Why cant we all chill?!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:08 PM

It's more fun *not* to chill.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:12 PM

That is the problem with humankind...we desire for strife. But we dont wanna discourage Meg! If she stops, it will be doom for CO!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 06:16 PM

Hey, this is a *fun* shot - thanks muchly, Meg!

(I like your, uh, wallpaper, too... ;))

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 07:52 PM

ok people i think the picture was supposed to be somewhat of a joke so stop the ranting already. i thought the pic was cute and clever

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 08:11 PM

Oh, duh! I was wondering why the wallpaper looked familiar. And where in the heck have I seen that ducky before???

(Yes, I'm slow today...)

Nice filing work, kitty. Now have you started the coffee yet?

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 08:56 PM

*pushes taped-ridden hornrim glasses up bridge of nose* [nerdy poindexter voice]That's definately a PhotoShop. Most definately.[/nerdy poindexter voice]

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 09:00 PM

Well, I for one am glad all the meanieheads took the time to post their screaming "IT'S PHOTOSHOPPED!!one1!!1!" posts. Otherwise, I might have missed all the adorable details, like the wallpaper, and the official CO duckie mascot on the wall. I even spy Baruchito on one of the drawers!

Nice work, Meg, on the Photochop AND on the site. I love coming here to see what sort of cuteness you've managed to turn up! Thanks for doing what you do!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 10:41 PM

This is of course photoshopped, which makes it hilarious! And all the details: The wallpaper! The duckypic! The lables! The coloured cabinets!!! I love the thought of making a website into a room!!!

And I can't understand all the extremists around here - it's obvious that this ran out of competition (is there a competition anyway?) - and also we've seen a lot of "man-made" cuteness with the dolls and soft toys. Cute is cute. Go, Meg, go!!!

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 11:08 PM

by golly, you're right! thanks for pointing out more of the cuteness! a tiny cute tribute to the dearly departed.

 |  Feb 19, 2006 at 11:48 PM

Wow, I'm kind of dissapointed in a lot of the 'regulars' here (I have popped in on this site for a total of 5 times now, when I have time, and it's been complete eye candy :P ) Anyway, so the webmaster makes a cute promo piece to make a point and people jump down her throat because it hints the faintest of wretched Photoshop handiwork. Normally, this would be a total dupe and I'd be upset too, if it weren't for the fact that 90% of the time the pictures are legit. Even one 'slip' and the webmaster's standards are going downhill? (it wasn't even a slip! I get it was a fun promo pic for the news update.) Where do you get off on pointing hyperactively, frothing at the mouths, and wagging your fingers almost instantly and questioning the integrity of this site? (even a "HEY WARN US NEXT TIME" -- does she really HAVE to?) After all the hard work this person puts into maintaining a site for *your* entertainment? It's also free! Get over it and get a sense of humour.

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 12:33 AM

Cute Overload comment law- for every whiney negative comment left by someone who needs to seriously get a life, there will be at least four comments telling them to shut the eff up.

Not that I think it's a bad thing. Those people must learn.

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 12:38 AM

You photoshop people don't get it. If you paid the slightest attention to the site you would recognize the exact photo of the kitten. Nobody was trying to pull one over on you, it was right out in the open. This is an announcement about the site, not a regular submission. The picture is supposed to a fictional representation of a typical scene at the corporate offices of Cute Overload International.

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 12:56 AM

Its lovely, whether its photoshopped or not. Especially the matching wallpaper!

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 12:57 AM

Heehee, it makes me imagine there are cuteoverload offishes and that you all sit there seriously contemplating cute photos and rating their cuteness for our benefit :D Hee... can i have a job? Mine sucks!
Congrats for clearing the email backlog. Keep up the cuteness... :)

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 01:43 AM

Hey, like Meg said, hold your horses! She put in this pic just to go with the announcement, so enjoy it and chill out. BTW not all the stuff on the site is photoshopped, and its the natural ones that are the cutest. So give yourselves a break.

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 01:44 AM

Get a life people!...Geez it's CUTE! Isn't that the freakin' point? Any idiot can see it was "made", so what? I think it was very cool, BTW that takes work to do pics like that! I love this site! It makes my freakin' day! Go Meg keep up the great work!

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 02:49 AM

okay, so I don't see many of you guys who are bitching so violently with your, "ohmigod, it's so, like, photoshopped!" attitudes posting your own work on a website with this many readers.

the site is called "cute overload", not "these images are 100% real."

perhaps you have this site confused with a journalistic site, where accuracy is an important factor.

in fact, perhaps you should remember that meg doesn't get paid for this site. she started doing this to entertain us.

stop sucking the fun out of everything, will ya?

it's not like she's charging you to look at it either.

perhaps you should consider that though, meg, charge admission to the gripey bunch.

especially those who post multiple comments to a single post using different names (but the same email address).

[why is it that seven different users {mellowbanana, alzeenia, lulai, dathia, thenid, wild geek and milhania} all have the same email {alzeena29@sbc.globalpet}?]

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 05:17 AM

Katey: Thank you for playing my MPD email game. If it hadn't been for that one deranged individual using different names for different opinions, this thread never would have taken the turn that it did. But seeing as we're all posting about it (guilty as charged), the nitwit obviously got what she wanted.

On a brighter note, I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and rest of the week. Long live the cute!

 |  Feb 20, 2006 at 05:42 AM

I really think it was sweet to include a picture of Baru in there. :)
