This is a purely technical question and I am not interested in the politics at all. Please don't get angry. It is not my intention to offend.
I am open minded and want to understand the technology but some things have not been explained to me:
People who claim that it is authentic say that the different layers are caused by the OCR scanning process.
The people who claim that it is a forgery respond by saying that the OCR process could not cause links to images that are rotated 90 degrees and then scaled. They claim that this proves that the Birth Certificate was composed of different images.
Again this is a purely technical question and I am not interested in the politics at all. Could someone explain to me the links to rotated and scaled images?
This is one video that discusses the links issue:
Many years ago I intended to become the burgomaster of a lost village. Some officials told me I'd have to provide my birth certificate in order to take that office.
Unfortunately I could only offer a birth birth certificate – just as your headline describes. The officials were then confused and thought it was something about reincarnation. An illegal act, specifically for a designated burgomaster.
That may not have answered your question. It's probably irrelevant.
But I don't under stand how a burgomaster caan lose a village and why you had to forge your birth certificate and then get reincarnated to boot.
As far as the OP is concern you have to rotate it in order to understand it.
No. I just wrote birth twice by accident.
I wonder if scanning software can make mistakes like this.
OCR and linked images that's a good one! The person narrating that video doesn't know their *** from their elbow.
Read abot what OCR means and what it produces and then read about Llinked images.
You'll see what I mean.
The OCR explanation was for why the document had multiple layers when it was suppose to be a scan of a physical document. People claimed that the Birth Certificate was a forgery because of the layers and someone showed how the OCR scan can create multiple layers.
However that didn't explain the linked images. The person in the video never claimed that OCR explained the linked images. That was the whole point of the video.
If you are knowledgeable can you explain to me how a scanning a physical document creat a PDF file with linked images that have been rotated and scaled.
I'm not sure what you mean when you say I answered my own question.
And no. It's not me. The whole point of my original question was to look for a flaw in the logic or dishonesty in that video.
At first it looked like an OCR results, but it's probably more an optimizing process. Whatever explanations you might get some folks will always beleive it's a fake certiciate, and others will beleive is a true one.
Since some of you might stumble on a FoxNews interview with me on this subjet, I'm posting my reply to FoxNews that they never agree to add to the original posting. http://bit.ly/A8gjek
Can we now return to Illustrator? ...
Thank you for responding with actual facts. That the layers were created by optimizing is something I saw on youtube also. Everything seems to be straight forward and any burden of proof should be on the people claiming that it is a forgery. The only thing that seems off to me is the fact that it has links that were rotated and scaled to different dimensions. As demonstrated in the short video I posted. Do you think the optmizing process can also cause this effect?
