Today, Facebook rolled out 3D Facebook photos that use a dual lens smartphone camera to give depth and detail to the image.
“Today we’re starting to roll out 3D photos in both News Feed and VR. 3D photos bring scenes to life with depth and movement.”
These photos can be viewed from any smartphone but to create them, you need a compatible duel lens camera which Facebook needs to give the photos the 3D effect. For now, the feature only works with iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XS, and XS Max. But, Facebook promises to add other compatible smartphones in the future as well.
It’s very simple to create 3D photos but Facebook offered an in depth tutorial for creating them anyway.
What you need to do is capture a portrait from your duel lens camera and then open Facebook app and start creating a new post. In the post options menu, select ‘3D photo’ and then select the photo you want to enhance from your device. Add a caption if you want, tap post and you’re done.
You can view these photos by tilting the device or swiping the image around just like any 3D photo. For best results, Facebook recommends that you capture photos with the main object around 4 feet away from the camera; have some contrast of colors in the images because then Facebook will be able to create more detail and depth. Also, a little foreground and background will bring the image to life.
The feature was first announced back in May in the F8 conference and it’s finally making an appearance today. For now, Facebook has rolled out the ability to view 3D photos for everyone but the ability to create them will gradually roll out to all the users in the coming weeks.
Facebook has undergone quite a transformation since it first started. First, there were just text posts and photos; then, Facebook expanded them to videos and later, live videos. Now, the 360 images and 3D photos have made an appearance. All of this is to get more and more people on the platform so that Facebook ad revenue keeps getting generated.
