A post which intentionally uses technical tricks to present a full sized image that is deceptively different from its thumbnail.
Use on Danbooru
This tag covers the following types of surprises:
- Animations that build up to a startling climax.
- Animation frame tricks that flip away from the first frame as soon as the full image finishes loading or after a long delay. Danbooru only shows thumbnails and samples for the first frame of an animation.
- Images with optical illusions that exploit digital image resizes and handling of transparent backgrounds.
- Images with cleverly placed halftone effects that are designed to be completely obfuscated when the image is scaled to thumbnail sizes.
- Images containing metadata exploits that manages to fool Danbooru into displaying a different thumbnail.
This tag is to be used for intentional, technical exploits only. For non-technical exploits or artistic accidents, please use the Misleading Thumbnails pool.
