I made Sift, an experimental image editor that slices an image into layers. You can offset the layers to generate interference patterns and pseudo-3D effects.

It uses additive blending and a pixel-based light splitting algorithm. It came out of thinking about how to add depth to a grid of pixels. For more info you can read the release notes ( or watch a video tour ( As always, I'd love to see anything you make with it.

@stephen nice! Someday I'll find a way to make GIF capture a part of the app itself.

@packbat thanks! And good call on the test image -- going to add that to my test image set.

@grantcuster we really like it! it's the one Wikipedia uses to demonstrate color palettes -
