Horizontal Sliding and Slanthing Moving Arrow Backgrounds

Perhaps y ou've seen the arrows that move in a circle, here is another variation to spice up your life! As often as I can, as I create the illusions for this site, I try to work multiple illusions into a single picture, so you'll have to take a look below and see if it works for you as well.

It's two illusions in one!
First of all, it appears that the lines are not straight, which in fact they are perfectly straight. Look at the blue gaps between the arrows and it looks like they are slanting either up or down, depending on which one you look at.

Next, because of the color choices and how this is laid out, if you move your eyes up and down across the image, the arrows will appear to shift slightly. This also works if you just stare at the picture for awhile. The tricky thing is that the arrows move in the opposite direction of how they are pointing.

This is a fun illusion to put as your background, so when your friends see your monitor, you're sure to start up a conversation with them about this, and you can profess your love for optical illusions! This one comes in two sizes, just use the links below to download them.

Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
