I wonder.. is this possible?

Yes.

Edited by Rick: Removed superfluous and annoying whitespace.

Oh! You want me to say how?

Create a new layer. Fill it with the color you want. Then experiment to find a blend mode that gives you the results you want (there is no 'luminosity' in paint.net though). Then, merge that layer back on to the original.

usedHONDA, your tutorial has almost nothing to do with this effect. Try not plugging your own stuff when its not related.

Step #4 takes the brightness of the fill color(medium gray) and uses the color of the original image (this is the basic function of the luminosity blending mode). I found that lowering the contrast all the way gives you the same exact result (it helps having both programs...). I also tried just inverting the colored layer and I was able to get the same illusion effect. Good luck. If you don't mind I might recreate this tutorial in PDN.

P.S. Rick, can you say something to usedHONDA about posting all that unnecessary white space?

Stare at the center and the black and white picture should turn to color. If not then u need to slow it down somehow, your on your own with that part :P

Triggerr_Happy, You have to have the black dot in the center of the image. The way the illusion works is, your brain works to calculate the peripheral image surrounding your point of focus and when the brightness values are inverted your brain inverts the color aswell. As soon as you look away from the black dot the color goes away.

The effect kind of works without the black dot, but its harder to find and keep your focus point.
