In 2018, Facebook launched a feature called 3D Photos. These images are more attractive with more dimensions than the usual ones. Facebook 3D image feature helps with this. Now we are viewing more and more of the 3D featured images on Facebook. Earlier, users required a phone with two rear cameras to use the 3D feature. But now, with the help of its 3D technology, Facebook has refined its technology to make 3D images available even on phones with a single rear camera.
In an official blog post, Facebook stated "Our 3D Photos feature has [thus far] relied on the dual-lens “portrait mode” capabilities available only in new, higher-end smartphones, so it hasn’t been available on typical mobile devices, which have only a single, rear-facing camera. To bring this new visual format to more people, we have used state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to produce 3D photos from virtually any standard 2D picture. This system infers the 3D structure of any image, whether it is a new shot just taken on an Android or iOS device with a standard single camera, or a decades-old image recently uploaded to a phone or laptop."
Facebook 3D image work by analyzing a 2D image and sliding it into several layers that move independently when the phone tilts or scrolls. Earlier, the primary second camera on the phone was used to slice a photo by measuring the distance and the latest feature gives a real feel to your photo.
How to Make 3D Photo on Facebook?
What you need on your phone is the latest Facebook version to generate 3D photos on Facebook for those who don't update the app. Once you have created a Facebook post on the Facebook app, click on the three dots above the post. If your phone supports the 3D feature, it will show an option called 3D photo. On the iPhone, you have to scroll down as a 3D photo option.
Tap on the 3D photo to open the gallery on your smartphone and choose a photo you want to upload in 3D. It will take some time to transform it into a 3D photo and you can see a preview of this action and add a caption to it. Once this is moved to the post, you can share the post with your friends, family, and other social media platforms.
