Evolution Or Photoshop?

  1. You’re… you’re not very good at telling the natural world from Photoshop. This means you’re either easily taken in by fakes, or you’re naturally suspicious of animals.

  2. You’re pretty good at telling the natural world from Photoshop… but you could get better! Go and stare at some animals for a while (or alternatively look at some Photoshop tutorials on YouTube.)

  3. You’re pretty great at telling the natural world and Photoshop apart! You won’t be easily fooled the next time a Photoshopped animal tries to con you out of your savings.

  4. You’re brilliant at telling the natural world and Photoshop apart! You’re basically Charles Darwin. Go you!
