    what's wrong with my interpretation?

    appreciate the help
    You're missing the small "0" (zero) after 710. Its position is VERY significant.

    Photoshop is your best friend.

    One good thing about these image puzzles is that you get to fool around with PS and get to learn how to create "invisible" watermarks.

    No I don't want to spend $1000 odd to solve the puzzle (In other word, No I don't have photoshop.)

    There is a 15-day trial version available or you could use the free software called Gimp - it has many of the features you'd find in PS or any image editing application that allows you to do hue and saturation adjustment.

    Stage 2 of the puzzle specifically states that you will need an image editing application so unless you plan to stop after the general knowledge puzzles of stage 1...

    the question is what would the side length be if the area of the square is doubled, not x 4.

    Actually the one i really really enjoyed most was the 3D stereographic picture. Wished there was more.

    Finished all the 4 sets of puzzles in one sitting, with the help of this thread and the internet.

    For the benefit of others, I urge pple not to reveal the next stage URL if possible. Let others try to solve it themselve and have a sense of achievement in the end. Then they can say "Woot I solve the stage xx at the expense of my candlelight dinner with my other half"

    Your eyes are like lens. There is a minimum distance to focus. If you bring the lens close enough, you won't be able to focus even if the focusing ring is at it's minimum..

    Just stare really really really close to the screen and you'll automatically focus beyond infinity..

    The Julianic (Julian) calender puzzle isn't in the stage two puzzles, it's part of the "Stage 1" puzzles. Stage two puzzles can be found here:

    http://www.etienne.nu/stagepuzzle2/

    and requires the code you get at the end of stage 1 to start. It's free by the way.

    Cheers
