A staggering optical illusion has divided the internet after it appears as if it shows a black and white image of school girls in color.

The photo shows a group of young girls wearing different-color T-shirts while smiling at the camera with a turtle.

But on closer inspection the students are actually covered with stripes of red, blue, yellow, orange and green lines.

The snapshot is said to mislead the brain into filling the blanks with the mind, creating an illusion of solid colors where there are none.

Why do we see color aligning in black and white

The photo is said to trap the brain to fill the blanks with the mind, creating an optimal illusion of solid colors to appear where there are none.

& # 39; This is a black and white photo, & # 39; said Twitter user Lionel Page from Sydney.

& # 39; Only the lines have color. What you see & # 39; & # 39; is what your brain predicts that reality is, given the imperfect information it receives. & # 39;

The photo was originally taken by Chuwa Francis, but was later edited with a & # 39; color illusion remix & # 39; from Øyvind Kolås.

& # 39; The image for the post is a visual / artistic experiment that plays with simultaneous contrast as a result of other experiments these days, & # 39; said the post.

& # 39; An oversaturated colored grid superimposed on a grayscale image causes the grayscale cells to be perceived as having colors. & # 39;

The image has been retweeted more than 14,000 times on Twitter and has since conducted online rounds, including Reddit.

& # 39; For me, the green and blue lines work best and blend seamlessly into the background & # 39 ;, someone said.

Another said: & # 39; Red looks like a grid on a gray background. & # 39;

One explained: & # 39; I think it is because the contrast between the red and dark shirt is greater than that of any other color combination in the photo. I know that the human eye can see more shades of green than any other color, but I would imagine that we see red faster because it involves danger (the same color as blood). & # 39;

Many people suggest looking with your eyes & # 39; & # 39; to see full colors.

& # 39; Try to close your eyes, it's completely colored, it's kind of crazy how much your brain fills & # 39 ;, someone said.

Another said: & # 39; Slightly cross your eyes or crotch and the entire photo becomes color. It's brilliant and makes me want to rock up and down in a corner while crying at the same time. & # 39;

In the meantime, some people said they saw no illusion alongside the black-and-white image with superimposed lines.

& # 39; What I see is a black and white photo with colored crossed lines on top of each other. This is not an optical illusion for me at all. Nothing special here, & someone said.

And another commented: & # 39; I only see a black and white photo with colored lines. What am I missing? & # 39;
