A lot of great info here, but how much of this applies if you think you are looking at an inter-dimensional species?
Hello Puppytoven. Simply- almost nothing. Unfortunately any claims toward inter-dimensional species is a 'god of the gaps' argument. Unless it can be
proven or largely supported to be inter-dimensional, then we must work with what we have. And If it is proven- then we've got a bigger can of worms
and in need of better tools than when dealing with a 'blurry photograph' and vague claim!
However, while analyzing with the tools and knowledge we do have, as
astutely pointed out you should take into consideration
the phenomenon known as Pareidolia.
Whilst working with a possibility of pareidolia, it can be immensely difficult to determine when it is or is not real. Most of the time it is later
shown to be caused purely coincidentally by trick of the light. The best explanation we have is that human beings are genetically wired to recognize
things known to us. Most commonly is 'the human face'. Doing this allows us to create a shortcut in our brain's neural pathways to save energy, so we
don't have to work out what we are looking at every single time we see something.
So while not excluding the possibility that it may be something we have not yet encountered- out best course of action is to use what we have, and
knowledge is the best tool.
Some examples of pareidolia:

clearly recognized as a rudimentary depiction of a face.
