The new picture is really nice & I do like it but I really don't like the fact its photoshopped. It just looks wrong to me.

I love the new family snapshot. It shows a warm, and close family unit, and it looks like George and Lupo are very fond of each other.

how do you know - without doubt - that it is photoshopped?

What we are seeing is a repro of a picture in a newspaper (another repro) - we have not had access to the original.

George has very chubby cheeks, reminds me of his father @ that age but William had more hair I seem to recall.
The photo is very artsy - the window 'frames' the subjects nicely, it's also a bit wistful, almost as if they are looking out from the safety of KP at a world they can't really participate in. I'm not saying that's what the photo meant to project - just that was my thought when I first saw it.

George is so handsome and I think its a beautiful family portrait. Its signature Jason Bell. Not for nothing he's one of the best portrait photographers in the world.

Is there any info on who took this one? Edit: I just read it is Jason Bell. The CNN copy is grainy so I was thinking maybe grandpa was at it again.
It's cute and that little scamp seems very alert and happy.

OK - the DM has a much better copy of the image. His sweater has George stitched into it! Cuteness alert! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...d-parents.html

A big boy is right; I think William will be taking George out to the soccer field in a few years with that hefty built.

That's such a great family photo. George is so adorable and I like that they included Lupo. I only wish they had released more than one photo.

I love George's sweater.

The only thing missing is Lupo wearing a sweater with his name!

Great to see a new photo!
It is hard to tell whether the image has been "photoshopped" or not as we cannot tell if it was a sunny day or just a dull day on the north side of the building!
However, I do not mind so much photos being manipulated to adjust contrast, colour or lighting as this is no different from making adjustments on an older type camera before the photo is taken - with digital photography such adjustments are done after the photo is taken. It's a different matter when photoshopping is done by bringing two separate images together and someone's arm is missing!

Look how big his hands seem. And I like the hands on the window frame; that child has a "grip" on the portrait thing. OK - I am gushing. Nothing sillier than an old lady around cute children and animals.

^^^Not silly at all; I think everyone goes ga-ga over babies and animals. And when they're together, it's a major squee explosion!

What's worse than wearing the same dress as another woman at a wedding? Having the same outfit as the Duchess of Cambridge! Unlucky guest has identical clothes as Kate (but at least they both looked lovely!)-

You can see by just looking at the photo, this is the same appearance of a photo as the intial ones we got last year. What are seeing is a photo given to the press, it will look the same as it does in the paper as it will in person. Jason Bell seems to have a habit of making his photos purposely bad.

Apparently Catherine's eye colour changes.

I think too that George has more Middleton's genes that Windsor's one! But we'll see <3
That's a beautiful family portrait, the best so far IMO.
Do you think that it was already scheduled or was a move from the palace to "calm down" the bad voices caused by their few engagments and the vaction? I'm curious so I'm just asking
