Create 10 awesome optical illusions of your photos!


The ”Impossible Photos” Photoshop actions create 10 optical illusions of your photos, using a variety of the so-called ”impossible objects” (impossible triangle, square, pentagon, and impossible staircases). You can use the final images in your web galleries or print them e.g. on a T-shirt and stun the viewers!

• The first two actions create impossible triangles made up from 9 cubes. The first action uses the same photo on all cube facets, while the second action uses 3 different photos.

• The 4 ”Impossible steps” actions create impossible staircases with 8 and 9 steps, using the same or 3 different photos.

• The two ”Triangle Overlay” actions let you display your photos through two impossible triangle overlays.
• The last two actions create two ‘impossible' frames: a square and a pentagon, respectively..

There are no size limitations. The Photoshop version makes extensive use of smart objects, allowing you to go back and easily replace the photos when the action execution is complete.
