If you are a frequent user of social media, you’ll see different photos going viral from time to time.

While some of those photos may be shocking, the truth of the matter is that not everything you see online is true. There are many images out there that are simply products of digital manipulation created by people who just have too much time on their hands.

Case in point, these 8 viral photos you’ll see below are nothing but fakes. If you’ve seen them before and thought they were real, then you’ve just been fooled by Photoshoppers.

This photo of a tourist standing at the top of World Trade Center was allegedly taken just a few seconds before the terror attack. The truth, however, is that this Hungarian man just edited the photo as a joke for his friends. The photo itself was taken in 1997 – that’s four years before the tragic incident occurred.

#2. James Bond Island

Obviously, this image of a castle on top of a Thailand island is also a fake.
