Here is a cool optical illusion with RGB formats:
It is easy to actually pull off optic illusions through the use of software like Photoshop, whereas it was difficult before through the use of ink and manual prints. One simply has to have an understanding about optic illusions and its elements.
First, what is an optic illusion?
An optic illusion, otherwise known as a visual illusion, is an image that sometimes misleads and deceives an individual. The deception played is done through the colors, brightness, size, position, tilt and movement used.
The technical explanation for the visual illusions is that the brain automatically makes inferences from the things it sees.
The automatic inferences are based on old interpretations of events before, and the brain merely likens the present misleading stimuli to the previous one.
In the following Sick Optic Illusion for instance, the colors blue and green are technically the same color, this is green in reality but because of the other mixed colors in the swirl, the blue comes off as blue.
To see if this is true, you can always pull this into Photoshop and take out the other colors. This is sort of trippy but you might just want to try this. The result will be this one.
If you want to make your own optic illusions, you can also use the same Photoshop software. You can use a jpeg picture and open it using Photoshop.
Be sure that the picture has several colors, remember that you need such colors to create an illusion. Next you simply have to select Duplicate Layer and Desaturate the bottom layer.
Afterwards, pick a 50% gray color from the palette and use this to fill the top layer. Select Luminosity for mode and Opacity 100%, then adjust and invert.
You can try making other changes too like in the brightness and sharpening. Save both layers in JPEG formats and open them in Flash for animation.
You will have an image that create visual illusions.
Of course, this may not exactly be similar to the optic illusion shown above as the one above plays on the RGB format and the surrounding colors but this can be a good start for making your own optic illusions.
