Samsung Uses Stock DSLR Photo to Fake Portrait Mode Camera Results

Samsung has been caught using a stock DSLR photo to fake results of its Portrait Mode camera feature on the Galaxy A8 Star. Sadly, it's not the first time the company has misled customers like this.

In a post on DIYPhotography.net, photographer Dunja Djudjic reveals that her photo was posted to EyeEm.com and likely sold via a partnership the site has with Getty.com. In addition to tweaking her hair, skin, and eyes, she was cut out of the original background and photoshopped onto another photo of a park.

Whoever created this image, they also cut me out of the original background and pasted me onto a random photo of a park. I mean, the original photo was taken at f/2.0 if I remember well, and they needed the “before” and “after” – a photo with a sharp background, and another one where the almighty “portrait mode” blurred it out. So Samsung’s Photoshop master resolved it by using a different background.

After getting called out, Samsung added an "*image simulated for demo purposes" disclaimer below the photo.

I originally loathed this company because of how they desperately market their company and have stayed away from them since, but now they feel like a talentless steam indie hack job buying assets from unity store passing it off like it's theirs and considering this is the second time mentioned in this app that I have seen them do it makes my experience even worse because now even lost trust in them. Now this defines what it means to be uber desperate.

New low from Samsung, not surprised by one bit. When they mock Apple’s ads it’s always been proof on hard their own products suck. Their foldable phone will be handy... to wipe my ass when I’m done 😂😂.

What can one expect from Samsung? Even the top level person is/was caught for cheating. What do you expect the company culture to be like if the head is a cheater?
