Abstract

We propose an image file format that can be read in two ways, where two images are recorded in a single file as a bit sequence, and the forward reading the bit sequence makes one of the two images visible, or the backward reading makes another image visible. Such a way of looking at a binary data in two ways resembles that of an ambigram, which is a piece of calligraphy that can be read in two ways by rotating it or introducing other perspectives. The proposed ambigramic image file format is compared with the graphics interchange format (GIF) experimentally, and the results show the better quality of the ambigramic images than that of GIF images.
