So far this year there have been a lot of alleged paranormal encounters that were captured on video and then shared on the internet. One question is always wondered when photos and videos like these are presented. Are they real or fake?
With today's sophisticated graphic design computer programs, ghosts and other strange phenomena can easily be edited into any video with digital video and audio editing software. Even cellular telephones now have applications that can add creepy effects to photos and videos.
Many videos claiming to have proof of the paranormal are appearing every day on Youtube. Quite a few of the encounters seem believable but a majority of them are believed to be fake. Most true paranormal encounters caught on video are often overlooked because of the fakes and people often question the validity of those videos as well.
