Experiments with Lenticular Photos

A long time ago, Kodak started offering a service where you could send in photos and have them turned into a lenticular photo. No sooner did I get my first sample back that they stopped the service altogether. My thirst now unquenched, I set out to make some of my own. The result turned out actually much better, sans the horrible quality of the gif I’m posting above. It looks great in person! Basically, you can buy Lenticular sheets online. They typically come with an adhesive already on them. You can then find Photoshop actions that are pre-defined to take 2 photos and superimpose them on top of each other every 1/30th of an inch. Once you print out the resulting photo and carefully apply the lenticular sheet on top of it, you get a result similar to the above. Nice!

OMG! I haven’t updated my blog in 3 years!

Should I really be surprised? How many blogs are out there that are abandoned? 3 years ago I thought I would be different. Share my knowledge. Impress the ladies. I have a blog! Not quite. To redeem myself I am going to re-commit to this blog and above this entry will be several new posts, after-which I will forget about this for another few years. Hi!
