This afternoon it was white and gold and in the evening it turned into black and blue. I looked at it again and now it's white and gold

First of all, which image is the one being discussed?
These two images are clearly displaying different colours due to the different lighting/contrast settings.

Why does the so-called black area reflect a tint of yellow?

The first image is a bit over exposed. But you cannot change black into yellow tint by just brightening an image. And anyone can tell the second image was taken under low lighting, or it was altered to be darker. The details on the lace are not seen clearly any more, and there is still a yellow tint.


FYI, although the 2nd picture looks "blue", that's how white (or pale gray/blue) would look like under dark conditions. Kind of like how a white car looks like during night time with low lighting. That's not how blue looks like. Especially if it's going to be the deep blue shown here.



IMHO, I think someone took advantage of this clever idea to make something viral by Photoshopping the image, or there was a gold/white dress that was used in the picture, but isn't on sale anymore. Tie it in with the blue/black version, and now everyone is mindfucked.


Here's a picture of a white car taken without a lot of lighting. You can Photoshop it and use the colour sampler tool.
You'll get something like hexcode #728997 in the shaded areas.
Yeah, but the colour of this car is still white.

It's a matter of how your mind interprets the lighting. A white-and-gold dress in cool lighting/shadow could have produced that photo, as could a black-and-blue dress in warm yellow lighting. Your mind determines the colors of the dress based on what it assumes the lighting to be like.

I knew it was black and blue the first time because I've seen enough shitty pictures taken with potatoes to know what washed out black looks like.

I don't understand where people are getting black/blue. I'm sitting here on a $5k rendering rig with colour calibrated S-IPS monitors. It's blue/gold for me.

Either people have very shitty uncalibrated tn-displays or I'm fucking crazy. I think the whole thing is bullshit

Your eyes have retinas, the things that let you interpret color. There’s rods, round things, and cones that stick out, which is what gives your eye a textured appearance in the colored part. The “cones” see color. The “rods” see shade, like black, white and grey. Cones only work when enough light passes through. So while I see the fabric as white, someone else may see it as blue because my cones aren’t responding to the dim lighting. My rods see it as a shade (white). There’s three cones, small, medium and large. They are blue sensitive, green sensitive, and red sensitive.
As for the black bit (which I see as gold), it’s called additive mixing. Blue, green and red are the main colors for additive mixing. This is where it gets really tricky. Subtractive mixing, such as with paint, means the more colors you add the murkier it gets until it’s black. ADDITIVE mixing, when you add the three colors eyes see best, red, green and blue, (not to be confused with primary colors red, blue and yellow) it makes pure white.

—Blue and Black: In conclusion, your retina’s cones are more high functioning, and this results in your eyes doing subtractive mixing.

—White and Gold: our eyes don’t work well in dim light so our retinas rods see white, and this makes them less light sensitive, causing additive mixing, (that of green and red), to make gold.

So is this process true for a picture as well? since its a picture on a monitor, i would assume its not?

knowing that washed out black in a picture looks like gold and in turn guessing that the dress is blue&black is different than actually seeing black in the picture, which i dont understand how someone can see it that way.

for those who don't get it...

it's because they you are still seeing one side of the "delusion". You are either seeing the truth, or you are seeing a delusion and your perspective is stuck on one of them, that's why the whole thing seems stupid or you totally don't get it.

it's nothing to do with color blindness, or shade blindness or whatever.

it's nothing to do with the technicality of the photo. like "it's a bad quality faded photo, i can see why people are confused".

for those still using those kinda explanations, you are also possibly stuck in the delusion, or you've just always seen the truth and can't be deluded from it.




the best i can describe it is this... for those who have seen the shift in perspective/expectation/color.



Two women are walking down the street, they both see an ad for this dress, the ad looks exactly like the picture in question. they both decide they will go buy the dress together.

they arrive at the mall and find this exact cut of dress. one lady is all happy cuz she found the dress... the other lady is confused and wondering what the fuck is going on, cuz she sees the cut, but the color is completely fucking wrong and totally not the same shit they were looking at.

"this is the blue and black dress!!!"
"what the fuck? where is the white and Egyptian gold dress?!"
"what? what are you talking about?"
"uhhh that pic... the white and gold dress?"
"uhhh no it's blue and black, exactly like the one im holding now"



for those who saw the shift saw the extreme shift in colors like the above example, most of you probably thought your friends were trolling you (i did).

I was asked what color it was, and i said white and gold. they didn't reply. well i duno the nature of the question... that was retarded... its obviously white and gold.

3 hours later, i scroll back to the chat and i see a thumbnail of a blue and black dress... what the fuck when did they send this? wait the time stamp says its the old pic... what the fuck? open it... it's fucking blue and black... who the fuck switched the photo in the chat? how did they do that? are they fucking with me? what the fuck is happening?

story of the day bros.



edit: this is like a mini psychedelic micro trip. a lesson in perspective, and how expectations from the subconscious shift what your senses detect and how your brain interprets it. The world is an illluuuussiiooonnnnnnnnnn... we're all in some kinda matrix yo.

^Had the exact same thing happen to me just now. At the time I posted that meme, I would've bet my life on that pic being black and blue. Now, I see it being a white and gold dress in some shitty lighting.

I wasn't able to distinguish the white or the gold earlier, and now I'm completely blown away.

Maybe it's because I'm familiar with how lighting colour temp affects photography, but was immediately noticeable to me.

I still can't comprehend someone seeing white at all, but I guess I'll never get it.

I know that overly 'cool' photos can make whites look like they have a blue tint. If it was an ALL blue dress, with no background at all, then I can understand someone thinking it's white. But this SHOULD be compensated by the fact that the rest of the image has a yellow tint. . Yellow lighting, and yellow shine on the black means the dress is blue. That's what made it obvious for me

it's going to be discussed on the bbc in a few mins... -_-


i see lavender & gold....and so does photoshop


seems more like those saying black/blue are saying so due to the obvious potato/exposure issues of the image and not based on what they're actually seeing

massive trolls

now im seeing black and blue.....time to log this if i ever need to deal with 'eyewitnesses'

I saw black and blue at first glance and see it every time, even the adjusted ones where it's supposed to look like white and gold I still see it as blue and black. In fact I haven't seen a single photoshop that has gotten me to see white-gold at first glance.

What I'm interested in now is if there's any significance to those who see it as blue and those who see it as white. Is it because one's brains are better at compensating for context, or one is better at isolating features.

I know anecdotally the white-gold people seem to be more steadfast about it.

It's a shitty picture of an ugly dress for fucks sake.

What nobody has mentioned is: are you arguing about the colour it actually is, or the colour it appears in your screen after being photographed with a carrot? It doesn't matter how good your eyes or screens are when the source is garbage.

Despite how seemingly inane the photo is, evolutionarily speaking, those who see it as black and blue could be said as superior since they are able to contextualize the colours to accurately portray how it looks in reality despite the poor image.

E.g. if a cop came and asked what colour the dress was in order to catch a suspect, if the person said it was white and gold it'd be incorrect.

Nobody is arguing, it's just fascinating. Like I still can't comprehend someone seeing it as white. It just makes my brain spin.

And for some people it goes "back and forth"? That's mind boggling.
