I was looking at optical illusions when I came across "John Lennon optical illusion." See link below for the illusion.
I looked on the internet for a tutorial but couldn't find one. After playing around with Photoshop I came up with this Instructable.
Here is the finished file.
This can be done with a photo or text.
