Huh? I never see still pictures as moving, unless it's in the world of Harry Potter... If you mean a collection of pictures shown in quick succession, of course the effect of motion can be perceived. That's because our brains take the signals from our eyes and process it in a way that makes sense. It's how movies work -- each frame is a picture, but frame after frame, it looks like the things in the pictures are moving.

The brain tends to "blend" rapid successions of static pictures (roughly 24/second in standard motion picture projections) into what is perceived to be movement."Persistence of Vision" is the perceptual theory behind the phenomenon of "seeing" motion; it is a function of the physical capabilities of the rods and cones as they fire, the rate at which that information makes it through the optic nerve, and the rate at which the brain can process the information.

it doesn't. It might see a series of still images as a moving image, but a single still image is just a stiill image.
