Just bought Creating Hybrid Image Illusions in GIMP from Tomo yesterday and today I tought I could try making my first hybrid image illusion.

Here it is:

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

If you guys don't know what hybrid image illusions are, they are images that show something if you are close to them and if you take a few steps back you see something else.

For example in my hybrid image you can clearly read my name: Marian if you are close to the screen and if you take a few steps back from the screen you will read a different word.

This can be used for mentalism type effects.

Regards, Marian

In that case it's working very well indeed! Smile

I wasn't aware of this concept. I'd love to hear about the effect you're designing around it.

The best-known example of this imaging technique is the Monroe-Einstein illusion.

Kenton's signs of influence ebooks use this principle, but with pictures
Some people hear voices.. Some see invisible people.. Others have no imagination whatsoever.

Not in my experience; to date, all of the (several) effects I have seen using this principle make use of images (usually photographs). This is the first text example that I have seen, and I don't find it as deceptive as a well-constructed "photographic" image (it's too obvious that there is "something funny" about the last three letters).

A few weeks ago on Confessions of a Real Mindreader, Phill Smith (author of Mitox, Yokai & Mokele) was the guest.
He explained how he makes use of this principle & also included a routine.

Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Without a decent routine, it's just another optical illusion.
