About the Image(s)

Here’s a phantogram I did some time ago. First, look at the image of my desk as cross eyed or parallel as you normally do. Then, as you are still looking, put on some anaglyph glasses and the taco dog pops up right there on my desk. Of course he would stand up more natural if you were looking at him at 45 degrees. The reason there is a lot of ghosting in the red of the printed image on my desk is that the red of my Epson printer has a wide distribution of the red color and the red of the glasses can’t make a good clean left image. The Taco Dog phantogram alone is shown as the anaglyph image.

David, This is a great image. I can view cross-eyed and then see the anaglyph with the red/blue glasses.
Well done.   Posted: 04/09/2021 12:08:44

Cute and well done phantogram of the Taco Dog. Placing it on the desktop would be more effective if it was laid out straight on and not rotated a bit, which created a lot of ghosting. In any case a very interesting mix of approaches.   Posted: 04/13/2021 12:59:54

Thanks for the comment. Our 3D club did some large 4' X 8' anaglyph images for the state fair and the company that printed them for us had just the right color of red. There was NO ghosting with the regular anaglyph glasses. Like I said my printer doesn't make good anaglyph phantograms. I kind of wish I had placed my hand in the normal side by side image, pointing just the right height, so when it was viewed without anaglyph glasses, it looked like just a paper on the desk and then when viewed with anaglyph glasses my finger would be pointing right at the dog's head.   Posted: 04/20/2021 21:28:54

Here is a cross eyed image of the Taco Dog with my hand pointing at it's head as I suggested above. With anaglyph glasses I can touch it's ear. I used a different red so there is now no ghosting. Enlarge it so you can see it better.   Posted: 04/22/2021 17:11:07

First time seeing an image cross-eyed view through red/blue glass!!! A very nice mixed composite. You have placed the printer paper at the exact position on the table matching the lines. However, the edges of the paper are distracting. Regarding printing, which mode did you choose - RGB or CMYK? I think, if you use CMYK, it will be more natural.   Posted: 04/22/2021 10:43:00
