In today's world of computer manipulated images, it's sometimes hard to tell reality from fake. A photograph that has been digitally altered so that it no longer reflects reality is a fauxtograph. Faux is French for "fake" or "false". Can be shortened to fauxto (pronounced foe-toe)
"Did you see that fauxtograph that's floating around the internet of a man with a duck's head?"

A fauxtograph is a practical joke in which the video setting of a digital camera is used to trick the target into posing for a really long time for what isn't a picture at all.
"Say 'cheese'!"
