i saw a video where someone changed the brightness and the contrast and made the dress go from white and gold to blue and black. i understand that much of it but what i don't understand is why i saw it white and gold and some people saw it blue and black and you seem to understand what's going on do you think you could explain it?

i made a post explaining it when the post first started going around so if you want to see a more in-depth explanation scroll down my blog but basically the dress looks lighter because the cynosure of the picture is the bright light around the dress. a good example is when you point your phone at the sky, it’ll be blue, but if you focus on the sun and tap it it’ll adjust and make the sky look white. the dress is in fact black and blue!
