    Thanks to both of you!
    I also make a lot of 3D still pairs, but I do not have a site dedicated to it, nor 
    When I add some explanations, I also include the tip to use the tip(!) of a pencil
    -or even a finger- somewhere between the images and your eyes.
    Point near the lower (or upper) edge of the images.
    Move it closer/further until you see "two tips" pointing at the corresponding points in 
    the two images, then look at the tip.
    Or watch the tip while moving it until it is pointing to the "fused middle image".
    Then remove your pointing aid quickly while focusing on the image.
