The 'Web2.5D' button in the module exports your image as a standalone HTML file. This file can be viewed locally in your webbrowser, or it can be hosted online.
Depth is conveyed by a subtle, configurable, bobbing motion. This motion subtly changes the viewing angle to reveal more or less of the object, depending on the angle. The motion is configurable both by you and the viewer in both X and Y axes. The motion can also be configured to be mapped to mouse movements.
A so called 'depth pulse' can be sent into the image, which travels through the image from the near plane to the far plane, highlighting pixels of equal depth as it travels. The 'depth pulse' is useful to re-calibrate the viewer's persepective if background and foreground appear swapped.
