Transform Any Color Photo into an Optical Illusion
Trick your eyes into seeing a black and white photo in color! This may sound confusing but stay with me here. I'll show you an original color photo file and then tell you how to use virtually any photo editing program to alter that photo in two simple ways. Then, with the help of any video editing software, you can complete this project of optical delight.
The effect takes advantage of how our eyes function. Make sure that you focus intently on one particular spot of the photo until just before the end of the video. I added a tiny black dot in the center to stare at, but feel free to pick any one spot to hone in on. The key is that you look solely at one area so that your eyes are thoroughly fooled at the end. Most importantly, have fun!
