Photo alignment at its very best! This is an example of technology being used to demonstrate dramatically a fact that would otherwise be difficult for most people to perceive.
I assume the cross fades were done using Flash and a timed transparency mask. Nice. I’d like to know how to do that with a slider that one could drag across the image — one one side the top image and on the other slide the bottom image.
