This impressive looking photograph of a large hominid creature next to a human has been produced using an AI image tool.
As if conventional faked photographs aren't enough of a problem, these days we have to contend with images created using artificial intelligence as well.
This intriguing image, which shows a man next to a very large Bigfoot, has recently been circulating social media with the caption:"This photograph, taken in 1883 this year on Okey Mountain, Cleburne County, Alabama USA, was found buried in a glass jar on the family estate."
As it turns out, however, the image can be traced back to @the_ai_experiment
on Instagram - an account known for sharing a number of AI generated images.
According to artist Dan Lyle, it was created using MidJourney V 5.1 using the prompt:"Picture of the last known giant Neanderthal on earth, walking amongst normal height men, black and white, tattered vintage photo --ar 9:16 --v 5.1 --style raw."
