    Well, I was browsing the net and came across a website that gives some examples of what colors look like to color blind people. I had to get some non colorblind people, my wife for one, to tell me that was I was looking at was indeed a different colored image.

    As an example, here is a S. 'Judith Hindle" that I think is very colorful.

    All, I can say is that its a wonderful color. However, this is how I actually see the image (not that I can tell the difference between these two image, they look exactly the same to me).

    What a Red/Green Color Blind person sees the above image as:



    So, if you are not colorblind, you should see a big difference between the two images. If you are Red/Green colorblind, you probably think they are the same, just as I do.

    I feel sorry for the people who can not live their life to the fullest or see the beauty of what nature beholds.

    Nick, I'm sorry to hear that.

    Do you know that secret message thing they do (I remember them on cereal boxes and happy meals) where you hold the clear red plastic window over the jumble to see the message? Can you read those without the red window? I had a couple friends when I was a kid who could see those messages just as if they were written on plain paper. Kind of interesting the unique things in people. Nice Sar too.. wish mine would look that good no matter what color people see them lol.

    I should say the site converts images sent to it so it gives an idea how the image looks to those who are color blind. The image above is from one of my S. 'Judith Hindle's.

    I have known i was colorblind since I was very young. It always kinda made me upset when my sister could read the color test numbers and I couldn't. This is the first time that I have been able to show somewhat what I see things as when they can see the full color range. I still cannot believe those two images are different. They are identical to me.
