Stereogram Viewing Tips
Many people have difficultly
seeing the hidden 3D image in a stereogram. Some people will
indicate that they are simply unable to see them. While a very small
percentage of the population may be physically unable to do so, a vast
majority can indeed see them. It is important that you keep trying.
Once you are able to see your first stereogram, the process of viewing
future images becomes much easier.
If you are having trouble seeing the hidden
images in the stereograms on this site, several viewing tips are provided
With your eyes about 18 to
24 inches from the screen, choose a spot in the center of the image and
stare directly at it.
Continue to stare at the
image and let your eyes relax. Try to focus your eyes as if you are
trying to look through the image at something behind it.
Your eyes may go slightly
out of focus - this is ok.
After a short period of
time, you may start to see some depth appear on the image. If this
is the case, then you are very close. Hold your eyes on the same
spot and continue to let the hidden image move toward you.
If you do it properly, you
will now start to see the hidden image.
If you still can't see the
image, keep trying. There is a hidden image or 3D element in each of
these image. Don't give up!
A 3D stereogram is a flat image
that produces a three-dimensional effect when viewed in a certain manner.
