There was a time, when an anaglyph image was produced with two different black and white images. One was printed red and the other was printed cyan with inks on paper. The glasses, acting as filters, allowed the colors to be either blocked or seen by the right or left eye.
However, the times have changed, but the artistic value of anaglyph effect remains the same. The beauty of modern color anaglyphs is the shockingly realistic appearance of depth and detail that can be seen once you put on a proper pair of 3D glasses. For all the graphic designers that are inspired by old 3D movies, comics and posters to create a retro 3D effect that mimicked their offset red/blue images, we have a great design resource at hand today to help you achieve the coveted anaglyph effect in your designs.
