Can you detect a hidden “illusion in these two photographs? It shouldn’t be too hard, and the illusion is quite similar in both images. It took me few seconds before I figured the cow one, so decided to share with you to test your senses. The only problem with these two, is once you figure them out, there’s no going back. Photoshopped? Most definitely!

    Although they aren’t very hard, seeing as I spotted them both right away, they are very fun to look at. I loved the coffee one! Very clever. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Lisa says:

    its not really an illusion it was probably photo shopped

  17. Lisa says:

    i hav no problem wit it xept dat it’s not accurate, whers antarctica?

  18. Bryan says:

    Really? It took you a few seconds to see a map of the world in both those images? You should recognize that instantly…

  19. peace-angel says:

    Kinda sad that in the coffee 1 there was no New Zealand!!! Pretty easy to tell what it was all about straight off, still good anyway

  20. Me says:

    That is sooooo fotoshopped!!!

  21. josephine says:

    I saw the illusion b4 the actual object on both, lol

  22. popesantaxiv says:

    Ah. That was too simple.

  23. Leon Haidvogl says:

  24. Bathbomber says:

    I saw the map before I saw the cow. Yawn

  25. Japzack says:

    Easy but fun. I’ve already seen the cow one

  26. Japzack says:

    They missed out NZ on the coffee one!

  27. Care Bear says:

  32. Jacob says:

  33. Nikolai Scheel says:

    wheres antarctica?

  34. LarryO'Dea says:

    It’s so cute that in both maps Australia’s little island Tasmania is included- they get very annoyed when their fellow countrymen leave it out but the cow and coffee got it right!

  35. DexNebulator says:

    There was no “Illusion” to this. I’m starting to feel like there is more bullshit posted on this site, than actual “illusions”. It is VERY obvious what this picture is. My eye’s were NOT playing any kind of trick on me. Yes. It is Photoshopped, and there is no “illusion”. The creator/moderator of this site, should do some research about “Illusions” so they can post cooler shit.

  36. I’ve seen my country on the cow!! Yaweee!!

  37. Sathish says:

    A 2nd cow (or a dog?) in the 1st pic.
    Aface at lower feft in the 2nd one.

  38. Rick says:

    yeah, easy…maps of the world

  39. Andrew says:

    you people are missing Atlantis

  40. Kimon says:

    The cow has to be photoshopped. I think the coffess is staged but real.

    And I have to agree it is rather impossible to miss the map on the cow unless you rarely ever see world maps.

  41. Brad says:

    you’ve already psoted the cow atlas one lol :P

  42. Very interesting photoshopped art work.

  43. Ron Calhoun says:

    Not your best work. But, The coffee actually does look like a spill. The cow illusion would work with context. For example, an advertisement about exotic milk.

    Replace the cookie with a paper towel, “Our brand cleans up a world of spills.”

    I could see an ad campaign with the theme, “How to know when its time to get away.”

  44. duncan says:

    My biggest complaint with this site are images like this. It’s not an illusion. Not in any way. It’s a cow with a world map image on it… and nothing else. This is “photoshop”, not “optical illusion”.

    This belongs on imgur, not here.

  45. Pebblecrusher says:

    Cooperfield should be jealous!

  46. anonymous says:

    i just need to jump in a cold river

  47. ? says:

    i don´t see it. all i see is a cow with weird designs on it and a spilled coffee with even weirder designs

  48. DaEgg says:


  49. Goddess of Fire says:

    they’re maps! But i really think that the dude who owns this website should put a thing on it that says “Photoshopped” or “Not photoshopped”…Seriously.

  50. Elsie says:

    Erm… has anyone else noticed that the UK seems to be missing in the second pic? Still thought they were cute though :-)

  51. ed says:

    its the map of the world/amazing

  52. Lil Smily says:

    i lyk this one :)

  53. coolio says:


  54. cindy says:

    freaky awesome tho but freaky xD

  55. momey says:

    lol that second pic of the world i think americas under the newspaper …….GOD THAT MUST BEEN A SIGN :O

  56. Ismail says:

    I’m struggling to see the illusion here. All I see is photoshop work

  57. ferret says:

    I showed my friend this illusions and she couldnt figure it out and I’m like omg lol

  58. AMANI says:

    oh Shit!

  59. nick says:

    look on the news paper and the cow hide

  60. nick says:

    sorry not the news paper the coffie

  61. Ryebread says:


  62. Tyler says:

    okay the usa is in north america not in greenland where the news paper is dummy

  63. Suor de Sapo says:

    ‘Hidden’ “illusion”? ‘Few seconds’? C’mon! At least you quoted “illusion” here. I don’t think it’s an illusion, anyway, unless there is something else. Someone tell me…
    (New Zeland is missing in the coffee’s world map whilst Japan, UK and Iceland were partially, somehow, flooded by the oceans – Ah! I know what happened – just realized that there’s no Antarctica, too! It melted away!)

  64. dovahkiin says:

    I WHANT THAT COW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  65. me says:

    I don’t see it

  66. kiana says:

    wait the cow is I map so…we live on a cow not a earth
