Fake or Foto??: I found this in one of my feeds this morning (I forgot which one). This has been floating around the Web for at least three years now. I took the test back then, and I apparently haven’t gotten any smarter because I didn’t do any better this time around.
Ten pictures. Five are real (meaning they used a camera to take a picture of an actual thing), and five are computer-generated. You pick which are which.
Besides being a nice little game, it gets you thinking about the value of a picture. It used to be that a picture was gospel — if you had a photo of Bigfoot, well, that was proof. Now, it’s probably just Photoshopped. We can’t even trust pictures anymore.
