Actually, doing just the instructions is a very poor representation of this 'egg'. If you would like to see this image right side up and the rest of the egg (several more hidden images) follow these steps: load durer;colormap(map) %This just makes the image black and white.% id = get(image,'CData');image(id); %Displays the image told of in the above egg, but this time right side up!% And now repeat this stament several times: id = (id - floor(id))*32;image(id); In order, these are the hidden pictures: Dog 1 Dog 2 mathworks logo Child (bad coloration) highy garbled durer's matrix 4 cells Young girl (most clear of these last few images) 3 people (yes the blob on the right hand side is a person) Very garbled person image The word 'Original' indicating the final picture (the rest of the image is just a bit of garbage caused by compressing the images in this way.) I hope you find this interesting.

Actually, the thing works with any image that you have loaded, and it looks much better if you have another image before. So, just do ">>image(x)"; where x is any image file, then do ">>image", now it looks really good.
