This research is focused on designing the texture of a camouflage pattern in a way that it merges in a chosen background more effectively than a traditional camouflage pattern. To do so, six images of target area were chosen and the images were fractalised, in gray scale form, via Fourier technique. The colour of the fractalised images was reduced and digitalised. Employing a characterised LCD, a photo simulation experiment was made and by conducting a psychophysical method, detection technique, twenty-four observers assessed the hiding efficiency of the three camouflage patterns, named traditional, fractalised and digitalized patterns. In the psychophysical experiment, the observers were asked to click on the patterns as soon as they manage to see them. The experiment showed that the hiding efficiency of the fractalised and the digitalised patterns are much better than the traditional one, and the fractalised pattern outperforms the digitalised pattern, marginally.
