RE: Challenge #1 - Is she alone?
No, I'm using 32 bit. But I don't see how that would affect the thumbnail of a picture in any way.

RE: Challenge #1 - Is she alone?
WOW!

Update: It's not even the same image... I compared in photoshop by shrinking down the image and placing it over an enlarged version of the image with her and the guy, her head is more tilted in the one that you see.

RE: Challenge #1 - Is she alone?

It is an EXIF image, commonly used by digital cameras which stores different data for the thumbnail and the actual image.

I win?

I seen that in the file signature, but I was curious to see if the file was even the same one or not. I guess it's safe to assume there's 2 photos of this girl floating around somewhere in the world :)

Edit: Someone enlarged the image in the thumbnail:
[Removed]

Edit: I guess the image got removed, so i'm just going to remove the image tags.

OKay before I've seen what the hype is all about.... I did this...

Downloaded the Image, saved as a copy, thumbnail was still the same, but on opening the image there was the hidden one for c.a. 0.05s before the original one loaded....

Nice :) Go check out the other challenges, i've opened every last one of them and gave them a very basic attempt. I've gotten maybe part way or half way through some of them and found some interesting things :)

Damn I didn't even know there were threads about these. I actually figured this out myself lolz. Windows stores file icons in thumbs.db files. So while looking through I found this:



Keep in mind that is for the Large Icons file in the thumbs folder.

Now if we look at the smaller ones, it is a different image.



Also here is a bigger one for even further proof.



Damn I am so happy I got this without any help really from you guys, and this was my first one ever trying. Though if you combine mine and Pred's answer I would consider that the full and complete answer. As technically I think we were both missing a half to it.
