Example result

The gif that was used was taken from Causarma. If your browser supports it, you can try dragging the bar image over the one with the lines very slowly. Note: some browsers tend to resize the image being dragged, it won't work in that case!

System requirements

Java2 version 8 or newer. You can check if you have it using this command line command (Windows: Start->run->cmd):

java -version

If you get nothing or if it's telling you that it doesn't know the command "java", you probably don't have java. If you get something, it should look like this:

java version "1.8.0_92"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_92-b14)

If the number is 1.8 or larger, Visual Cryptography should run.

If you don't have Java or an old version, you can download the newest one at "Download".

How to start

If everything works, you can just double-click the jar file, but sometimes a compressing software like WinZip graps this file extension or Java doesn't register itself properly.
If that happens, try running Jarfix first.
