The images have not been edited at the pixel level. However contrast, brightness, saturation, sharpness, gamma and/or color balance may have been adjusted to maximize detail and resolution has been tinkered with to minimize storage requirements. I still have a LOT to learn about digital photography and expect to go through several generations of images of these fossils over the next decade or two.
