Technology has made it possible for us to do things that were impossible a few decades ago. Life has become easier in many ways, but we’re also more prone to being thrown by fake realities. Technology has made it possible to alter pictures and make them look real, making people even believe it is. With modern editing tools, photoshopped images can deceive people into believing false realities. There have been altered pictures of people, animals, and places doing or being things that never happened. Only a few people question the credibility of these pictures because, well, seeing is believing. Here are some viral altered photos and their original versions. You won’t believe these were edited.
The astronaut smoking in space
The thought of an astronaut chilling and smoking weed in space will get anyone fascinated. That’s precisely what these altered pictures hoped to achieve- and they did. Many people believed this picture was real because it got the internet buzzing for months.
This picture of Chris Hadfield smoking weed in space alters what really happened. Chris is an astronaut who makes viral vlogs of what life looks like in space. However, Chris is actually holding a package of Easter eggs, not weed. The adapted photo was just for clickbait.
