Title says it all. You should have experience viewing this kind of illusions if you are regular visitor. Just in case you aren’t, let’s repeat the steps… First, I want you to open this image full size, then move your head away from the screen as much as it takes for you to recognize the person hiding in it. For more celebrity illusions, visit celebrities category. This optical illusion was submitted by Laura Ours who also wished me to have a nice day. Thanks Laura, and I sure will since I’m still on Santorini and tonight I’m taking off for Kreta (Greece). Take care people!

    This is so cool! you’ve got to try this. It worked on my computer, but it may not work on everyone’s. It may depend on the computer. First, when the image is full-size, copy it. Paste into Paint. Reduce it to 50%. Reduce it to 50% again. (It doesn’t work if you just reduce it to 25%. Don’t ask me why) When I did this, the vertical lines VANISHED, leaving only the picture!

  9. Michel says:

    I think Kreta (Crete) is another country, not being part of Greece…

  10. JAE says:

    I don’t see why this is an optical illusion – it seems to be simply a faint gray image of Johnny Depp with lines drawn over it. If the lines were not there, you would see the image clearly.

    Awesome. I think that its becasue the bars are barely shaded.

    too easy.

  13. defcon2 says:

    Not really an illusion, just a grayscale photo with some lines over it…

  14. afrofernandort says:

    i don’t really like these illusions =\ they’re just lines and parts of the line’s gradients lowered slightly to form a picture of someone…lame…

  19. Hunar says:

    nice… try squeezn ur eyes.. it works even better

  20. Badslats says:

    –== Instruction ==–

    You see the image a lot better if don’t go away from your screen. You just have to change the angle you are looking from t 45° – 20°

    good luck, nice illusion

  21. kukuburra says:

  23. NachoBizznez says:

  26. Anonymous says:

    It´s far too easy to see, I had to move my face closer to the screen not to see him.

  27. Anonymous says:

    Hmmm…never seen a Johnny Depp movie that I actually liked.

    Jump Street was good, though.

  28. BOO!!!!!! says:

    I think it is really really really easy and if someone doesn’t get it they should get some help!

  29. Phil says:

    nice illusion, not the greatest, but nice.
    on another note: michel, have u ever left country? crete is definitely in greece, it’s the southernmost island.

  30. Mike says:


  31. Worf says:


    I think Kreta (Crete) is another country, not being part of Greece…)

    Unless they changed it, it’s still one of the Greek islands, I went there back in the 80′s, was absolutely brilliant, hope u enjoy it m8.

    Pic is good, it’s what it’s supposed to be, an optical illusion, I didn’t think this site was labelled “The BEST optical illusions ever”, so I dunno why some “criticize” about seeing better.

  32. ghhydr says:

    hahahahahaha… This is the best one i’ve ever seen (yet). Think you kinda gave it away with the subtle clue in the title though.

    I also like the way this illusion has a space all of its own between
    ‘WTC 9/11′ and ‘A fox, a rabbit and a tiger’ on the menu. How did that happen?

  33. lizzy says:

    OMG!!!!! anything with johnny in it has gotta be awesome! i love it! and i love this website, i must say by far this category is the best!!!

  34. AnGeLiNe says:

    omg that is so friken awesome!!1 how did u get it to picture his face?

  35. Anonymous says:

    cool, i tried the 50 percent reduce thing, it totally worked. the lines didn’t really vanish, but they seemed to and it made it easier to see the image of johnny depp. :) you’re good at this. lol XD

  36. Anonymous says:

It worked on my computer, but it may not work on everyone’s. It may depend on the computer. First, when the image is full-size, copy it. Paste into Paint. Reduce it to 50%. Reduce it to 50% again.

  39. Lara says:

  40. Me, Myself, and iPod says:

    At first when I looked at it, I. SAW. IT. EASY. But then I read a bunch of posts and then it was all a blur! It took me a while before I could see it again… And I have really, really good eye sight!

  41. jessica says:

    • Lucy says:

      if you are on a laptop bend the screen back and if your on the computer turn around and without looking at it walk tot he back of the room, turn around again and look at it.

  53. bleh says:

  67. destiny says:

    wicked cul

  68. kailas says:

    It’s Realy amasing, this illusion created by Right bars thin and shaiding.

  69. Andrew says:

    Not an illusion. Just a picture of Johnny Depp with some bars in front of it. I can see him with my nose touching the screen, or at 5 ft away from him. It works the same at small size as at big size.

  70. jaydon says:

    look at it from an angle

  71. Anna says:

    what does it mean? where’s the illusion?

  79. Alysha says:

    Jonny Depp was in Alice in Wonder Land but they made him look nothing like The Mad Hatter

  80. aroiun says:

  81. your mom says:


  82. The RBK says:

    Why open this image full size and move your head away???
    These kinda illusions are so easy to solve.
    Just close your eyes about 50% and you’ll see the image.

    Cool, Isn’t it…?? :D

  83. Chocolate says:
