Don't know much about that program, but perhaps you loaded some sort of color profile or such in the program?

Are you in CYMK colour space? Or saving to CYMK colour space? I had a similar problem with photoshop.
thanks Dogmeat!

It could also be you use some impasto brushes, which add a mask over the image and makes it a little bit brighter.

This is quite cool, It's basically super high resolution paintings using the google maps set up.

I've noticed quite a few images hosted on image shack have been redirected to display this:

Imageshack got compromised by this anti-sec group, apparently due to the imageshack administrators not properly securing their servers.

I had to read through a couple of times, and It's still incredibly unclear but what I get from it is that they against publishing security holes OR against the people exploiting the holes, maybe both. They say that the security companies are publishing the security holes so that people will exploit them, in turn creating a need for their security programs. Although I don't know anything about this anti-sec movement I think this is specific to the hacking of image shack and just one of their agenda. Something like,
"we hacked this and caused you inconvenience because computer security companies are publishing security holes for profit, also BAD PEOPLE [guys exploiting the security holes] STOP BEING BAD"

I'm probably way off though.

Seems to me that's pretty much it. As I understand it - perhaps I'm a bit cynical here - hacker groups use a facade of ideology in order to not have to write WE HACKED JOO LOL TAKE THAT. Some do though, I'm just saying those that don't, still are fuelled by the desire to be recognised for their skills by the wide public. The most important part of the hacking annoucement is always the part about 'what group' they are, then. The anti-sec group, in this case.

Basically the guys who wrote this are so far up their own asses and jargon that they can't even get their point across. With that much text. Which is sad! Awright!

"Full-disclosure is the disclosure of exploits publicly - anywhere"

that's the explanation they offer as to what they're fighting against

exploits? Explain this shit to me man, what kind of exploits, in what context? If you're about SENDING A MESSAGE to the GENERAL PUBLIC then EXPLAIN IN TERMS THAT THE GENERAL PUBLIC UNDERSTANDS or you're just full of shit.

Apparently the INDUSTRY does this. To earn MONEY. And .. And .. I'm lost.

Whatever.

They should just've written HACKED j00 f00LS and drawn penises all over the image instead
