    is this one of those “magic eye” things? you know, where you look kind of cross-eyed at the picture until it becomes 3D. they make me crazy. or do we have to count the bricks and pebbles? if that’s the case we have plenty of time to fight back.

    Your images have linestiling that makes it look bad.

    Here’s how you should have made those. Make one brick, say 512X512

    1) Then go to filter->offset->256X256 (this will make it so you can see where the edges line up)

    2) Then a combination of the clone stamp and healing brush to fix where they tile.

    3) Then do another filter->offset->256X256
    This is just to make sure the lines are gone. If they aren’t just fix whatever small tiling is left and repeat it again.

    Takes about 60 seconds to do this.

        More seriously, these are called stereograms and there is software out there to help you design them. I’d mention one in particular if I liked one in particular at this point, but I don’t so I won’t… yet. I’m working through them and will review them when it comes to it. You can find stereogram software at
