Eclectic or Reddrum (or anyone else who knows this program)~ With the info above it is telling me that the image was tampered with in Adobe and they played with the Color Halftone. Is this right? So it is “very” likely that this photo was fabricated. Right? I don't have this Adobe program so I can't check out what this program can do.
Just trying to learn more about fabricated photos….

to me. Adobe makes Photoshop, and the effect in the picture could very easily
be done in Photoshop.

I have seen aura photos, but they don't look like this one.

Aren’t you supposed to take an aura pic with a special cam any ways? Any how, He will have to be a God to come up with this kind of aura. Lol Aura will show you colors and it changes second to second. I use Adobe and Im 100% sure you can easily get this effect with the program.

This photo is soooo fabricated.

I'm guessing fabricated, but you never know

According to the EXIF data, there were layers created and effects used.
BUT, that's just my opinion.

The spirit's "aura outlines" overlap, as you can see the darker border between the layers around the spirit body. Those overlaps are exactly the right shade for the two lighter colors to create when they're overlaid on each other.
A good example would be to take a wide felt-tip marker, a "medium color" such as orange or that pretty light blue, and draw two lines side by side of the same color. Let the lines overlap a bit at the edges, and you'll get the same effect as the aural "outline" in this photo.
There are too many questions that come up when looking at this photo to convince me that it's real. I'm going to go with some kind of photoshop type program too. For comparison, here is a photo that was submitted to Ghoststudy a year ago that we felt showed more accurately what a true energy form looks like...I've seen the same with my own eyes, only mine was more detailed:

Benefit of the doubt, it's hard to say exactly what goes on with that site to get their pics up there, programs used for resizing, cropping, etc. and not to mention, this isn't the original directly from the source. But to be completely honest, no picture that I've seen that has been merely cropped and resized holds that kind of data on the EXIF not to mention that there's not one, but two photoshopping programs listed.
The only thing I could think of that might explain the layering in the EXIF would be if there was a watermark, of which I see no evidence but it also may have been cropped but I am seeing mention of copyright.
Hmm, might be a good idea to try copying another pic from their site (that looks more believable) and running through the EXIF to see what kind of data it holds. Might give a better idea of whether this is regular use of their programs or not.
Good eye Seeker, I think we have a winner. Shall we write George to tell him your findings?

Mistypoo ~ your photo looks more realistic then the other fabricated photo. Yours seem to have more of a natural looking glow around it. I like it! Great Job!
Here is my photo with the wine bottle looking thing. It was so easy to do.
Added Wine Bottle
I tried to read the EXIF after I played with the photo and all it said was "Could't open EXIF file". I wanted to see if it would have said I worked on it in PaintShop pro. I guess I will have to try it on one of my own original photo to see if i would get this info.
Again, Thanks Everyone. I've learned a few things today!

I will try and find other photos like this on his site to see what the EXIF program data gives.

I am able to read my EXIF data on my original pics in the folder where they were downloaded straight from my camera.
If I open up the pic in PSP and tell it to “Save As” to my desktop under the same file name and extension (jpg) so that I can play around with it without scraping the original, The EXIF program tells me, “Error, Couldn’t open EXIF file..” I have done nothing to the pic except copy it to my desk top through the PSP program.
I also opened the original pic in PSP, played with it, and then saved it under another name to the desktop and the EXIF still says “Error, Couldn’t open EXIF file..”
Any pic file I bring into PSP and save to another folder I loose all the EXIF data.
