How to see stereograms

Seeing stereograms is very simple but for some persons can be a big deal.
Maybe you need a training to see it, though if you learn the right way to proceed you will never forget it and a world of magic will appear in front of your eyes.

The important is to know that if we look to stereograms in the normal way as we use to look everything other, we couldn’t get the image hidden
behind the texture layer.






The two known technics are:


Parallel viewing:

eyes have to see parallel.
How to do it?
Try to look over the image and beyond it as you try to focus on an image that is behind it.
In this way the sight lines of the eyes will arrive parallels on the image we want to see.
In the common stereograms with two parallel images each eye look to the right image (left eye=legt image ; right eye=right image).
This method is also called “divergence method”.






Cross eyed viewing:

in this case the sight lines of the eyes cross themselves before the image we want to see.
In the common  stereograms with two parallel images this means that each eye look to the opposite image
(left eye=right image ; right eye=left image)

This method is also known as “convergence method”.







And now?
I know that knowing how does it works doesn’t mean to know how to do it, so i will give you some tips on how to see stereograms.

First of all try to stand very close to the stereograms, in this way your eyes don’t focus on a particular point, after 20 seconds move back
the stereograms or move you back very slowly. In this way you can see the stereograms hidden behind the texture.

Another way to train you is to look one of your fingers, trying to see 2 fingers. Can appear strange, but if you try and try again, you can arrive
to see the two fingers.

Once you see the two fingers, just use the same technic with a stereograms and you will see it.
