There is no photoshop or edit in this video

A video of erupting volcano was shared on various social media platforms using title “there’s no Photoshop or edit in this video”. Here’s one example post on Reddit.

Couple of red flags:

  • When they claim there’s no Photoshop or editing, there probably is
  • There is a dragon-shaped shadow flying in the video. That’s clearly edited.
  • The people in this “video” are motionless

This “video” is actually based on a still photo of Calbuco volcano eruption in Chile, 2015. Here is one news article that contains the photograph. Unknown artists created an animation on top of this still image, added the dragon shape and apparently started sharing that as “non-photoshopped or edited” clip.
