Definition from own experience or research:
Боюсь, устоявшегося термина еще нет, но предложенный мной вариант (изобрел велосипед) в Сети встречается. Именно в нужном контексте - подделка фотографий во имя политических целей.

Example sentence(s):
  • Украинская фотоложь о грузинской войне Видели грузинские фото, якобы из только что разбомбленного Гори? Так вот, они инсценированные, а, стало быть, лживые. Многие искренне купились на это, но это наглый обман, и вот доказательства - Мариуполь, форум горо
