Word of caution: Journalists have gotten convicted on child-porn charges
for downloading this stuff even when it was for (so ran the defense)
article-research purposes, and that's *with* American First Amendment press
protections, such as they are, in effect. Explaining to one's local
authorities that we're all white-hat folk just trying to help find these
kids by doing a bit of PhotoShop... something tells me this is not the
strongest tactical position going.

Just a thought --
noting that various child-search and child-protection agencies already do
not only cropping but age-enhancement and all that sort of thing.
