Facebook's 3D photos are ready for your news feed

Facebook's 3D photos are ready for your news feed

These tips will help you to create good 3D Photos that you can post on your timeline or view using VR.

"Today we're starting to roll out 3D photos, a new way to share your memories and moments in time with a fun, lifelike dimension in both News Feed and VR", Facebook announced in a blog post. According to Facebook, the ideal distance from the subject is three to four feet, this resulting in images with a 3D effect that really "pops", according to Facebook. There's no mention of support for Google's dual-pixel Portrait mode photos captured with the Pixel line.

How to view a Facebook 3D Photo?

Earlier this year at its developer conference F8, Facebook showed off a new feature named 3D photos.


Did you find this new addition to Facebook News Feed interesting? The feature should be available to everyone "in the coming weeks".

Unfortunately the new feature just available for iPhones right now and there is no word on when it will arrive on Android devices.

To create your own 3D image of the site, start by creating a new Facebook post.

As pointed out by TechCrunch, Facebook has started rolling out 3D photos to add make-believe depth to shots taken using the iPhone's portrait mode. Of course, since this is done through a ton of software trickery, the results are not always flawless and you don't actually get a 3D model of what you're viewing.
