This is an alternative to #1581. I've replaced the Lena image with public domain images of Ada Lovelace and Grace Murray Hopper.

If you want to replace lena you need something with more color and details.

@Tillsten: What, seriously? Both images are lovely and colorful, and in any case, how exactly are these demos dependant on "color" and "details"?
