    Can someone explain to me the Adobe Illustrator Obama Birth Birth Certificate forgery claim?

      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:
