    That's impossible. I hate these things where people ask if they see pink or mint. If you're just looking at that photo, everyone sees it as mint and grey, there is no one that has different vision that sees it as pink.

    If you KNOW that the white balance is off and once corrected, the shoe is actually pink, it doesn't change the fact that in the image it is still grey and mint. You didn't just magically change your brain into thinking that it sees pink, you see it as mint but KNOW that it's pink so you're just lying to yourself.

    As another example, what color does this guys face look like? It looks orange because of the lighting and the white balance hasn't been corrected. We know that's he's not actually an oopma loompa and his face is actually regular skin-colored, but that doesn't mean that anyone sees anything other than orange.

    Your brain fills in the blanks, that’s why there’s those b&w images that you can trick your brain into seeing colour on

    Except that you're not seeing black and white and tricking your brain into seeing color. You're seeing mint but you KNOW that it's pink so then you pretend that you actually see pink when you don't. It's not tricking your brain, it's trying to lie to yourself without you even realizing it.

    Is your brain lying to you somehow different than tricking you?

    Yes, it is different. You're lying to your brain and pretending to see something you don't. That is different than your brain seeing something that's not there and lying to you about what it sees.

    It's impossible for anyone to look at that shoe, say that it looks like it's grey and mint, then once you understand that it's actually pink, say that it now looks pink to them. That is lying to your brain.

    However, if someone were looking at the picture of the shoe in their dark basement with the only light source being a blue light, perhaps from some dimmed 10,000 K LED bulbs or something, where they emit a bluish light rather than the orangish light that we're used to, then it's possible that it will look pink to them. But that's because the rest of their environment is being lit by the same bluish light that is affecting the color on the picture, so then your brain would be tricked into thinking the shoe was actually pink because the rest of the objects in the room are covered in the same bluish glow.

    But then the question they ask at the start is also important.
    'What color is the shoe?' and 'What color do you see the shoe as?' are two completely different questions.

    You aren’t lying to your brain, your brain is lying to your eyes.

    If the photo was taken in good lighting or wasn't edited, majority would be able to tell it was pink and white.

    Moral of the story is... if you take a crappy picture, it doesn't look the way it does in person.
