<br />To animate <i> an image this size (500 x 500)</i> scroll down to the first comment. A much larger (930 x 958) animated image is available by viewing the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/7726011@N07/4325283475/sizes/o/">original size image</a> (click all sizes, above)
The purpose here is not to duplicate the original image, from Okinawa Soba’s stream, but to generate a downloadable animated gif to assist viewing and presentation.
Okinawa Soba posted several CC licensed stereoimages by Japanese and western photographers documenting life in early 20th century Japan (the Meiji period). The original Underwood & Underwood image, presented for cross-eyed viewing and showing a Geisha walking down a path with stone lanterns, is one of many stunning stereo compositions. There is no copyright date and it is believed this image has no known restrictions on publication. This animated gif version exploits motion parallax to give a stereo illusion without eyestrain, to see what the photographer envisioned.
