Find the word

Post by Will »

In this image, I have hidden a word. It is your job to find it, using any means possible, zooming, messing with brightness, etc. The first person to find the word gets 10 points! 8) I'll keep making hidden word images until everyone gets bored.

Current scores
Balloony - 40
Cryoburner - 10


Here's an easy one to start with :)

No clue, but if someone told me how to upload an image, I could upload a picture 99.99% impossible to solve! Tell how, and become stumped... :P
P.S.You will never figure it out! :)

So it isn't a nearly undefinable built-up of pixels , which could be assumed as being characters? What a shame! I thought, I had already the solution:
"akondp" ;)

The characters are in the image, they're just there in such a way you cannot see them. You'll need to mess with it

Horray! I've cracked it!

I couldn't work it out better so far, thought firstly also it is called "Bottom" but then... Balloon!

What a nasty one to turn the word 90°! First off all I revealed the "n" thinking it was an "E"

I want immediatly my ten points! *whine

That one was quite a bit too easy, just had to fiddle around with contrast and brightness. How many points do I get? :wink:

Hrm, that's annoying since I tried to recover the words using brightness and contrast but I couldn't, I had to do it by other means ;)

Another 10 points for you I guess :roll:

I'll make a harder one next time

This one is mean, wether you do not have Photoshop, but I do :P. I gained it with "Treshold" when I noticed an anomaly in the histogramm of the picture. Anyway, the solution is already a little bit imaginable when you use Paint to white away the silver-grey background. A small square remains around the capital letter "S" and this cannot be caused by compression because PNG isn't compressed.

May I add ten points to my score? ;)
And by the way, I can also wait a week or so after posting an image in order that other people have also a chance to find this interesting thread and try one's luck.

Well done :)

Admittedly, they're pretty easy to solve with photoshop. Maybe I should knock it up a notch :twisted:

Use the following BBCode-Tags to link a picture

Code: Select all

However, the picture has to be online, you cannot upload it here.

Please note that only one image has been guessed so far.

You have to actually tell me what the words are in the images to get the points!
