How to tell jumanji from ‘real life’
The ‘Jumanji’ emoji is one of the most recognizable symbols on the internet, and for good reason.
As a result, it is used across social media sites and online gaming platforms.
In reality, however, you don’t have to look far to find a jumanjis face, photo or video that’s not real.
Here are some tips to help you spot the fake ones.
Are the eyes white?
The first step to spotting fake photos is to try to look at the person’s eyes.
If you find a face that looks more like a picture of a white person with an orange tint, then it’s probably a fake.
If a face doesn’t look like someone with a white face, you can try to get closer to the person, as that can help to differentiate them.
Is the person wearing a mask?
If the person is wearing a full face mask, it’s a good bet they’re fake.
People are known to use masks when they’re having fun, and if they’re doing it to look professional, they’re probably not doing it for a good reason, and it could be the mask has been made of plastic or metal.
Is it a black and white picture?
If it’s black and whites, it likely isn’t real.
The best way to spot a fake picture is to look closely at the face.
If it doesn’t have a full mouth or a nose, it probably isn’t fake.
Are there long black lines running across the face?
If you notice long black bars running across a face, then you can be pretty sure it’s not a real person.
This can also be a sign that someone is making a fake face for a different reason than they would on the face, such as to make it look like they have a scar.
Is there any hair on the person?
A good rule of thumb is to always check the back of the head.
If there is any hair at all, then the person may have been digitally altered.
A more reliable way to check if a person is a real face is to check the tips in the photo below.
Is someone wearing glasses?
If there’s any hair to be seen, that’s a sign someone is digitally altered as well.
If the photos above show people with a dark, brown or brownish hair, they may have digitally altered their faces for a fake purpose.
Is any skin exposed?
If someone’s face is exposed, that means they’re digitally altered and there’s no real skin there.
If this happens, it may be an attempt to make a fake photo look more like real.
Is anyone wearing headphones?
If people are wearing headphones, they might not be real.
People who wear headphones often make their faces look like the ones on a headset.
Is a dark outline on the forehead?
If a person’s face appears to have a dark line running through it, it means they’ve digitally altered it.
This usually means the person has been digitally enhanced, or that they’ve used makeup to enhance their features.
Is that person wearing sunglasses?
If they’re wearing sunglasses, it can be an indication of digital manipulation.
This may indicate that the person was digitally altered to look like a real human being.
Does the person have long black hair or a long, flowing beard?
If this is the case, it could also be digitally altered for a purpose.
Is anybody wearing a headband?
It’s also a good idea to check any headbands, which could be an indicator that they’re a fake, as well as any earrings.
Are they wearing a hat?
If anyone is wearing anything that looks like a hat, it shows they’re not really human, or they’re trying to fool the world.
Does it look suspiciously like someone’s hair or face?
A person’s hair can be easily seen in a photo or a photo of a person with their face in front of them, or it can have a hairline that can be seen through a mask.
A person can also have a long hair in a picture or a video, or can have hair that’s too short or too long.
If someone has long hair, it suggests they’ve been digitally edited.
Is their nose covered?
If facial hair is covered, it indicates that the face may be digitally manipulated.
If they don’t show any facial hair, then they’re likely not real, but if they do show facial hair then it may indicate someone has digitally altered them.
Does anyone have a smiley face?
Sometimes, people with smiles are seen in selfies.
If your friend posts a picture where they smile at you, it might indicate that they are digitally altered, as it’s often difficult to tell a smile from a normal facial expression.
Does someone have a pair of sunglasses?
