    Anyone seen these? :confused: They've been all over other forums the last couple of days, hopefully this isn't a repost...

    Apparently they only work in IE, so if you can't find it, it may be your browser's fault :p

    I can sorta make out a face, though not clearly. Is it supposed to be hard to see, or am I doing it wrong. I was never really good at those pictures where you need to go out of focus to see them.

    Highlight it with your mouse, or press Ctrl-A :)

    BTW, what resolution are you running? I'm interested to know how well they work on lower resolutions (I'm on 1600x1200)

    That's OK, I was just seeing if anyone could work out how to do it before I gave it away :)

    :cool:

    Apparently it works differently on LCDs and at very low resolutions (640x480, 800x600) Probably depends on the size of the monitor too.

    Is very easy to spot if you got a LCD screen.

    They're quite easy to make, basically when you highlight in IE it puts a halftone (checkerboard pattern) over the image, you just have to arrange the two layers (foreground and background) correctly using a check pattern that interacts with the highlight
