Inverted Flag Illusion

Perspective and Distance
perspective and distance

 

This optical illusion drawing is sure to fool your eyes. Look at the two distances AC and AB. AC appears to be much longer than AB at first glance because of the perspective that is drawn into this picture. In addition, the sizes of the trees actually get smaller the farther back in the picture you go.

As you most likely guessed, the two lines are exactly the same length.

ALSO the second part of this illusion is that if you were to judge the angle of CAB above, would you think it was about 45 degrees, 75 degrees, 90 degrees, or other? The answer is other. This is because the actual angle is slightly greater than 90 degrees. To test this, place a piece of paper next to the screen and you'll se that it easily fits into the angle created by the three lines.

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!

Moving Backgrounds

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.
