Get into paint and drag to make a long picture, fill it in with black and make a white dot in the middle, now draw anything with the pencil tool (don't make too thick of lines) on both ends of the picture. Now put your fingers on ctrl+I (invert)and focus on the white dot for as long as you can without moving your eyes and then press ctrl+I. Now tell me what you see :)

I think I messed mine up........:mult1:

here, just copy this (http://server5.uploadit.org/files2/201203-FOI2.JPG) into paint, focus on the white dot (while hand is on ctrl+I) and press ctrl+I make sure you keep your eyes still at all times, even when you invert it

12-20-2003, 07:22 AM
ouch i accidentionally kept ctrl+I in...epilepsy attack :\ for the rest i'm not sure what to see

12-20-2003, 07:31 AM
your supposed to se nothing, the images completely dissapear for up to a few seconds, it's really cool if ppl could just figure it out

[EDIT] look at the dot untill it starts to fade a bit, then invert, and keep your eyes still on the dot through the whole thing

Yes well some times one of the images appeared in the yellow spot in my eye but I expected something great like a lion coming out of the screen devoring me and selling my tooth for 5 cents apiece

hey, it's pretty good for something I had just found by accident, hmm maybe i over exaggerated with the exclamation marks!!!

I was goofing off in ps a few months back trying to make a fan and unwittingly made a neat illusion too. STare atthe center for a few moments then look away, you should see a black fan spinning.

Whoa that awesome Rhett lol.

12-20-2003, 12:41 PM

12-21-2003, 01:44 PM
Yea I don't see his illusion myself.

just stare at the white dot for about ten seconds and press ctrl+I, and keep staring at the dot without moving your eyes, are you using the fish pic I give you?

12-21-2003, 05:29 PM
Maybe your eyes are special, but I cant see anything. I thought I was gonna get a seizure. Sorry. :(

12-21-2003, 10:24 PM
Yup I still can't see anything. What are we supposed to see again?

12-21-2003, 10:49 PM
the fish are supposed to dissapear for a second

here copy this picture into paint and do what you would do for rhett's exept instead of looking away press ctrl+I


12-21-2003, 10:49 PM
