Face or Person

face or person optical illusion

The face is usually the first thing that you see, then if you look a little longer, you see what appears to be a bundled up woman doing some window shopping. Or is it an eskimo painting their igloo? Did you know that even in randomly arranged dots, people can quickly pick out what would appear to be a human face? It's because our brains fill in the gaps! With an ambiguous optical illusion like this, you'll find it's virtually impossible to interpret the image as both items at the same time. Your mind will either see the person's face or it'll see the person int he coat. Then you'll see that it will flip back and forth as you focus on one element or the other. If you like this you'll also like the bird or boat, or even just a simple cube.

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.
