This fish illusion has been floating around (see what I did there) for a few years but until now never made it into the Optical Spy database. Source unknown

What's going on with this Elephants trunk? OK we have to admit to a little bit of photoshopping!

This guy looks like he doesn't know if he is coming or going. Is it just a trick of the light or has someone been photoshopping?
Just been playing around on photoshop again. Actually, in case you are interested, I use Xara Photo & Graphic Designer.
We have been playing around on our graphics program again. This guy is upside down, well most of him anyway.
We are not all about optical illusions here at Optical Spy. We do like Art of all kinds, but especially unusual art and photography (have you seen our Tech Art Gallery?). Anyway we thought this picture was both beautiful and unsettling., so thought you might like it too.
Here is our latest illusion for you. It is a beautiful picture (origin) of a fire escape that we have, let's say, tweaked. So if there happened to be a fire in this building, you are pretty much screwed.
The pool and arches optical is our version of the many similar illusions we have seen over the years of arches straddling things. Ours utilises a beautiful picture (origin) of a swimming pool overlooking a fantastic sea view. But what has happened to the pillars of the arches?
At first glance we have two stools that have been manufactured as a conjoined pair, which is a bit unusual in its self. But on closer inspection this has the feel of an impossible triangle about it.
With the whole world seemingly interested in the vote to decide who will be the next Pope, we thought you might like this funny picture. Can you spot the invisible Cardinal? Click here to reveal the answer.
Thanks to Vidram for sending us this picture of a couple of guys scaffolding. It's not until you look a little closer that it becomes apparent that all is not what it seems. As we have no way of verifying this picture we have to assume a bit of photoshopping has been going on, but it really is a great illusion. If any of you have any good opticals you think we may like please upload them over at our contact page.
