Trying out the infamous IE selection filter, more normally used to undress characters.

Pic should've been more monochromatic for it to work better at hiding the hidden pic, and probably should've gone with a black dither screen instead. Well, it's my first attempt anyway.

Some penguin worshippers also report it works in Konqueror.

I just tried this with Firefox, it's pretty cool, faved.

But now everything is screwed up. Even when I go back to normal zoom. Everything is all blurry and out of shape, the front page now only shows 3 new pieces and 3 hall of fame peices, it's supposed to show 4 and 4, also the text is WAY out of shape. How do I undo?

Works on firefox if you ctrl+scroll down 5 times (from default zoom). Awesome work, might try this some day :)

I'mgoing to confess that I am enormously frustrated over here in IE6 and IE7 (at work)--spent around fifteen minutes in each resizing and tinkering and scrolling and I can't get the dither overlay to work at all. Thanks for the screencap--looks like it's pretty awesome when you can get it to work :)

Awesome! I don't know how do u do that but looks great. Is teh second one I have seen in my life.

Manupix: Actually, it did work in your shot. Just that it was showing the more visible image instead. What you can try is to resize your browser window around a bit and it might alter where the dither starts.

Here's a shot of the two images you might get depending on where the dither is:

No, doesn't work in IE6 (even trying different system colors for selections).

I've never heard of this filter since I'm a Firefox user, but the results are very interesting. I like the fact that the user has to select the picture in order for the effect to work. This tactile element really sells it to me.

Well done!

whoa! 5/5

 pretty neat!


The IE filter thing would probably be a cool weekly challenge topic.

For those who don't have ie/konqueror or can't get it to work look here.

 Interesting effect :)

Oh I see, thanks for explaining. Well, I can report that it works in Konqueror, but a friend of mine tells me it does not with IE 6. *shrug*

It's an old Jedi apanese trick, open this page in IE. Select the picture with the mouse or using CTRL+A. The watermark in the dither should now be visible. If that doesn't work, try resizing the browser window, as this trick requires precision on where IE's selection dither should start. I also experimented on scrolling the browser, which will move where the selection dither starts to be drawn. If you scroll carefully, you can alternate between a clear shot of the ponytail girl, or her bunny mode.

The thumbnail is the actual version, her blush shouldn't be visible in the hidden picture. The forehead and rabbit ears overlay are also too visible in the blown-up version.
