Ok, I found some time.
First I will post the below gif animation so you can compare the two images. It should make the differences quite clear.
1: The "postmortem" darkness under her eyes is fake.
The dark spots under her eyes are obviously fake. They are "cartoonish", extremely rounded on the bottom, artificially dark, and the edges are a bit
too sharp and abrupt. The "hardness" of the edges are too "hard", and equally so all the way around, and it doesn't look natural, its not blended
naturally. The photo that is supposedly photoshopped to make her look alive is more realistic, and imperfect and uneven, which is what you would
It appears someone used a "push" tool with a circular brush to "push" preexisting dark color over to create the dark spots. They used a "hardness"
factor of about 10% on the brush so the edges of the brush are not perfectly sharp, but somewhat blended, and they used the same "hardness" setting
for the entire thing. They did not take the time to blend it more or less in other areas which is what make it look so fake on the edges. They also
used an opacity of about 30% on the brush, so that the original color below blends in. I know this because of the following evidence:
There is a white mark under the right eye (her left eye) which I circled in red. This white mark is prominent on the "alive" image. If you compare it
with the "postmortem" image, you can see that white mark is still visible, however, it has slightly been covered up. It was covered up by a digital
paint brush with an opacity of about 30%, so the white mark was not fully erased, and is still visible. This means the image of her "alive" was the
source image, and the "postmortem" is the manipulated image.
It would not make sense if it were the other way around because that would mean someone purposefully increased the visibility of that white mark.
This white mark seems to be a light reflection, or skin pigmentation issue, or some other artifact, and I do not see a need for someone to add it into
the picture if they are trying to make her look "alive". I do however see it being covered up in an attempt to make her eyes look darker, and to
start a hoax.
2: Her "postmortem" iris is too large.
In an attempt to photoshop her eyes to appear rolled back into her head, someone simply added white color to the bottom of her irirs and pupils.
While doing so, they did not do a very good job of shaping and or sizing her iris. So the iris appears wider than average, and even oval shaped, on
her "postmortem" image.
Her iris are assumed to be naturally circular, and of course the widest part of a circle is the middle of the circle. If her eyes were rolled back,
we would not see the widest part of her iris, we would see a much smaller part of the iris on the bottom. In the "postmortem" image, it appears they
didn't bother to reduce the width of the iris in any significant manner, the just reduce the height, and slightly rounded it. So the width of her
iris in the "postmortem" image is almost identical to the width of her eyes in the "alive" image. This makes the "postmortem" image appear fake and
unnatural, and the evidence suggests the "alive" image is the source image.
3: Signs of original eyes visible on "postmortem" image.
This may be a difficult for many to see, but I can see it clear as day. I appears that when someone added the white color to her eyes to make them
appear rolled back, they didn't use 100% opacity. You can actually see the original eyes under the white. It is more visible on the left eye (her
Look at the white part under her iris long enough, and you will see a "ghost iris" still exists. They covered her dark iris with a somewhat
transparent white, so it did not get fully erased or covered. This is actually a mistake, and a sign they used a digital paint brush with an opacity
setting that was not 100%.
With that I can conclude this is a hoax.
