3D Stereogram Images

Some of you may already have came across 3d steriogram images some time, but thought its an interesting thing and for some members it may be new.

Stereograms are 3D images hidden within another picture. A stereogram is an optical illusion of depth created from flat, two-dimensional image or images. Originally, stereogram referred to a pair of stereo images which could be viewed using stereoscope. Other types of stereograms include anaglyphs and autostereograms.

Tips on Viewing the images :

1. Pick a spot on the picture (the middle seems to work best) and just stare at it.

2. Allow your eyes to relax, don't just stare AT the image, try to stare THROUGH it. You'll notice your eyes will go slightly out of focus. This is normal.

3. Keep staring, don't give up, once you begin to see the first image, it gets much easier.

When i was a child i got a magazine(1997 or so) with stereogram image, with a Zebra and its child. I looked at it hours and hours like an "APE" oh i meant i stared at it if i had gone lunatic and after whole day i saw the image and i was real crazy man was it a day in my life. I went crazy crying out loud "i found it!" :lol: Ah! Nice memories. Actually Stereogram images are composed of small pattrens which are joine together to form an image which hides another image in its self. These images are most oftenly used in currency notes.

:) , I dont remeber when I first time came across these many years back but yes for the first time it was not easy and when the first time you are able to view it , you get that wow I found it feeling :)
