Editing photos is something many people do, whether it’s touching up a selfie or adding filters to a nature shot. However, there are always some who take it too far. We often see these unrealistic photos in memes with taglines such as “What would you name this strain?”.

Take a look at the meme above. Notice the plastic bag is tinted blue, and the wooden table has specs of purple. That means it’s a fake. Somebody just radically altered the hue. This color change effect can be done in a photo editing program like Photoshop or GIMP.

You can see how easy it is to change the color of cannabis buds below:
