Woke up this morning finding my Facebook Newsfeed flooded with 3D photos. Yeap, Facebook is rolling out 3D photos (and I still haven’t got that feature on my account yet)
The 3D photos makes use of the depth maps that are stored with “Portrait” photos taken on iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XS or XS Max. For the best results, make sure your main subject is 90 to 120 cm away and try to capture scenes with multiple layers of depth including something in the foreground and something in the background. You’ll get more of the 3D effect when your photo’s subject has contrasting colours.
So go have fun and try some 3D photos on Facebook.
