Foot for a Hand Optical Illusion


I’ve been spoiling you all out there lately with a ton of new optical illusions that apparently a lot of you like. I just went through and approved the comments on the site and a lot of you actually gave me some compliments, which I highly appreciate. Heck, I appreciate comments in general, so don’t ever be shy when it comes to leaving one on the site. I promise you that I will certainly find it.

Today, I’m going to continue spoiling you, because I have another amazing optical illusion that I think you’re all really going to enjoy. Chances are, you looked at the title and you’re probably thinking this is going to be a really weird optical illusion — and it is! This woman seems to have a foot for a hand in the picture below. I want you to tell me how this effect was done in the comments section. Check it out and see what you think.

Now that’s a really weird effect, huh? The look on the girl’s faces just say it all. Can you tell me how they were able to pull this effect off? Leave your guess in the comments section.

    Hey, I’ve been watching a lot of sci fi flicks on Amazon Prime, and this looks like she could have had a role in Heroes. She’s a freak.

    Someones foot is behind/infront so it looks like her hand is shaped like a foot :)

    Or someone just jumped on photoshop

    Keep up the nice worked. I love getting spoiled :)

    Photoshop. Her “toes” are really her fingers (they are long) and her wrist is messed up, so it is clearly photoshop.

    it’s surely photoshopped..but, nevertheless, it’s mind-blowing!!!

  • RickyM

    This really is a strange one James. Do you know how it has been done?

  • donnaflagg

    It could be one of those photo warping software apps — or if I was using photoshop to achieve it, I would isolate the arm (a few more steps than just one)and then I might use free distort.

  • Ceedee

    well it’s photoshopped isn’t it?!

  • Prince

    It is actually a hand. Thumb finger is on the other side. However, I cannot figure out whats really going on, on the bottom left of the photo.

  • ewout

    something with exposure time and movement i think.


    its a hand not foot.


    Its hand not the foot.

    Unless you can tell us different I assume photoshopped to and it just doesn’t interest me. It’s not an illusion – just a manipulation. Now, if it is indeed some ilk of true illusion, that would be cool.

      That’s the beautiful thing about this image… You don’t know if it’s Photoshop or if these gals somehow did this on their own.
