There’s a lot of fake news going around the world right now and, with a little help from Adobe Photoshop and other photo editing software, it’s almost impossible to distinguish between what’s real and what’s fake. People have become so skilled at editing images that they can lead them to believe something just by providing photographic evidence. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best fake photos that went viral that people thought were true.
MGM Lion Goes To The Hospital
The one on the right is the real image, while the one on the left is only an edited work. This image led people to believe that MGM Studios was mistreating animals. However, the original image was of a regular lion being examined at the veterinarian’s office.
This cat had a lovely pattern on his skin that made it look like she had a mustache. However, their owners decided it wasn’t enough and decided to give the cat angry eyebrows as well to make it look angry all the time.
Fried Rice Wave
At first glance, one might believe that the image on the left is real, as the man looks so confident creating the wave of fried rice. Most people in the world believed it, too. However, the truth is that the wave of fried rice is actually a sculpture that was sold at a fake food store in Tokyo.
Not The Bag You Saw On The Internet

When the first photo appeared on the Internet, people were left wondering how Chris spends his time there.
