I was messing round with the "Yeti" photo. To my surprise, a face came out of the pixels. Has this been done before? Maybe it's pareidolia but there are other details like fingers that emerge too. Here's the image but I'd really like to try with a higher quality version. Anyone know where I could find that?

Well other people have probably tried to do this and maybe got similar results but as far as I know you are the first on this Forum to come up with it. Its certainly a CREATURE of some kind, Human or otherwise, with an HEAD and BODY and ARMS and HANDS and LEGS. That much is not Pareidolia, unless its a very unusual shaped Tree or other object, which is most unlikely. Whether it shows EYES a NOSE and MOUTH is another matter.

Thanks for the reply!
So assuming that IS the face, I've lined up the facial features with a known quantity....Dwayne Jonston who's 6"3'. Notice how the figure is 1.5 times the chest width of Jonston and assuming the legs are hidden in the snow, it would make the figure close to 8".  nea1 Quite interesting. Also the arms are much longer.

An interesting analogy.   And on the face of it [  no pun intended  ] it could be a fairly accurate one.  The snow is clearly of some depth, maybe around a couple of feet. The photo we see shows something around 6 feet tall and then add a couple of feet and you get your 8 foot creature.

I like your technique.  But what you are trying to do is very difficult for several reasons.

1.  The original image is very blurred and it's difficult to make out any facial features.
2. The enhanced version is very pixelated and the human mind is programmed to pick out faces from noise
3.  Because you are trying to match up one small part of the image with another small image any errors  of scaling are amplified.

A different and larger scaling reference would be more useful.
