Anaglyphs updated January 07, 2003
The above pages contain stereographic images designed for parallel viewing. These images are best viewed using stereoscopic glasses (OmniResources sells several models). With practice, these images can be viewed in stereo using the naked eye. To view with stereo glasses, view the image pairs through the glasses from about six inches in front of the monitor. To view without glasses, move your eyes to about six inches from the monitor, stare until your vision starts to wander. Try to bring the background into focus. The two images should seem to move together. This is the same technique used for viewing "Magic Eye" 3D images. It doesn't always work.
The size and resolution of your monitor will affect your ability to see the stereo effect. Objects common to both images in a pair should be no more than 2.5 inches (6.3 cm) apart on your screen. If the images appear too large, adjust the video mode of your monitor to a higher resolution setting. For example, if your display is set to 800x600 pixels and the images are too large, try setting your display mode to 1024x768. Under Win95, 98, NT, and XP, this is done under the Display Settings dialog box.
The Sonoran Desert page has several stereo pairs from the Sonoran Desert,Arizona. The Photomicrographs page has several stereo pairs taken through a microscope, the Skulls page has numerous stereo pairs of different skulls, and the Miscellaneous page has some of my early attempts.
Anaglyphs are red/blue (red/cyan) stereo photos. To view these photos red/blue glasses of the type used in movie theaters are needed. This page contains numerous anaglyphs of Sonoran Desert cacti from Arizona.
