• A flat image may appear to have depth from a variety of visual cues for distance.
• Visual cues for depth and distance include: occlusion, perspective, known sizes, lighting, focus, atmospheric perspective, parallax, and occlusion revelation.
• Some visual cues are stronger and can override others, as in forced perspective.
• Stereoscopic vision (stereopsis) uses the different view in the left and right eye to see depth by parallax and occlusion revelation.
