Instructions to view this optical illusion: Just stare at the different rings, and you should see a ton of illusory motion. That means that although there is actually nothing moving in this image, as your eyes scan around the image your brain will make you think that the rings are rotating. If you freeze your eyes and don't move them at all, you can almost get them to stop.

Instructions to set it as a background: We assume you know how to set this image as your desktop background image, but if you don't, you can do it quite easily. Just right click on the image and your web browsers should give you a context menu that allows you to "Set this image as a desktop background." Or, if you'd like to go the more complicated direction, you can right click on it, and save the image down to your computer. Then right click on your desktop and choose "Properties" or "Personalize" depending on the version of Windows you have. Then you can link to it from there.

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.
