As I sad were did you get those images, the links you provided are basically the same image.

Compare PIA16174 and PIA16239 The one is a landscape shot with two different filters … and the other is a rover selfie shot with the same rocks in the background. But if you compare the rocks you’ll notice they have been altered.

AAAH, the martians have developed PHOTOSHOP,

I’ve seen the rover image quite a while back (or it was a similar one), and even saw an explanation on how they took pictures and then removed the arm that held the camera. Great ‘selfie’!

The rover camera has to take many small images, they are stitched together later. So the selfie pic is not a “real” pic. Inorder to cover the seams where the stitching happens, the image will need photoshop touch up. Which is why duplicate or mismatching parts are seen. They are just creating images that be presented well in magazines and on TV.
