3D Photos Now Available On Facebook

Written by Gina Stephens


Facebook has started orbit out a 3D photo feature that, as quoted by the social media giant, gives users 'a new way to share memories and moments in time with a fun, vivid dimension in both News Feeds and VR'.

The feature works with images captured with smartphones that have dual lenses (such as the iPhone XS) so when you're in picture mode, you can create bokeh in your photos. 

Once you've captured an image in portrait mode, you just have to share it as a '3D photo' on Facebook and those who contemplation your photo will be able to scroll, pan and tilt it, giving it a 3D feel. 

Everyone will be able to see 3D photos photograph (also known as a photo) is an image created by light falling on a photosensitive surface, usually photographic film or in their News Survives and via VR now, while the ability to create and share 3D photos will be rolled out gradually to all Facebook users.

For those wanting to use the new feature, here are a few tips from Facebook on how to turn a '3D photo pro':


1. Create Layers
3D Photos use the depth maps that are stored within 'Portrait' photos and you’ll get the overcome results if your main subject is three or four feet away, and to really make it pop, try to capture scenes with multiple layers of brilliancy – something in the foreground and something in the background.


2. Keep Contrast In Mind
You’ll get more of the 3D effect when your photo's field has contrasting colours.

3. Use Texture
Some materials and subjects make better 3D photos than others. You’ll get the best come to passes from subjects that have some texture to them, have solid edges, and aren’t too shiny. Try to avoid transparent opposes like clear plastic or glass, as they aren’t always accurately captured by depth sensors.
