• @Nellie Thank you for your kind words! I hope you continue to enjoy exploring 3D photography. I would love you to share links to some of your photos!

    @Charles Very intersting concept for the site. I only had time for a brief look, but I’ll definitely come back for a closer look in the future. The Fuji 3D camera certainly has caught my interest, especially with the supposed 3D display on the back. I’m sure it, or a future variation will end up in my hands one day :)

    Can you not just duplicate the photo rather than taking two images?

    March 23, 2010
  • Craig

    No you need two different photos to represent the two images you get from your eyes. If you look at something and keep your left eye open and close your right eye then open your right eye and close your left eye you will notice there is a differance between what you see with each eye your brain gives you stereo vision from those two images.

    Wow Neil! Thank you for this tutorial. It was all I needed to start taking great 3D images!

    Hi, is it possible for me to alter photos and pictures that I already own and make them look 3D ? I would really like to do this for a project

    Yes it is possible to convert a single photo into a 3D photo Brian Wallace wrote a tutorial on using StereoPhoto Maker to convert 2D to 3D the document is in the files section of the

    Great technique. For the first time I was able to see a still photograph in 3D. Infact, the girl’s photo pointing her finger was the first pic I saw in 3D (using your cross eye technique) :D I owe you a beer for an awesome experience.

  • Well I’ve never come across this technique before in my time of being a photographer?!

    I’m intrigued and am going to give it a go.

    Your examples look great, and one could have a lot fun with this…

    Thanks for sharing!

  • I loved your write-up on 3D photography. I would like to start using the software you recommended, but the problem is that i recently bought my new laptop which is Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) and when i visited website of stereophoto maker, it says it will work upto Windows Vista version only.

    do u have any other recommended software or any idea if stereophoto works on Win 7 (64 bit) too?


    June 02, 2011
  • Craig

    StereoPhoto Maker runs on windows 7 no problems. Normally if a program run on Vista it will run on Windows 7

    I have read your article on taking 3-D photos and would like to give it a go. I am always a bit wary of downloading free software, so can you vouch for the safety of Stero Photo Maker and Auto Pano and if so does it tell you how to link the two.

    Many thanks


    June 02, 2011
    • Craig

      You are right in being suspicious of free software but StereoPhoto Maker is perfectly safe it doesn’t load extra crap on your computer the current version of SPM has internal code to do the alignment so you don’t need autopano.

      Hi again,

      Well I tried your method as suggested and I have had some lovely results. Interestingly enough I personally am able to see them better in 3-d without my glasses or contact lenses. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Nellie, I once saw a B&G photo of a building and as you walked the shadow change according to your position. Do you know anything about this form of art? Thanks

    What you are describing sounds like a flip Lenticular.

    I know I’m posting too late though I want to know do you know how to do the same using Photoshop….

    October 03, 2011
  • Thanks for your instructions. I tried it and it works great. I have a problem with Autopano on my pc, but I haven’t needed it to make some great images. :-)

    Some samples are at:

    How do you capture a fall leaves and the light streak i saw one of the sample? By the way the Autopan link doesn’t work anymore any ideas?

    March 16, 2012
  • Anthony

    Do you have an updated link for the Autopan plugin? Getting an error 403, that it doesn’t exist on the server anymore.

    April 27, 2012
  • Man, I’m excited to try this! It sounds like so much fun! And I found this post just in time too because I will be traveling to Japan this weekend and I can take some new 3D pictures while I’m there. Thank you!

    May 23, 2012
  • Good luck with your attempts Chris! Please link your 3D photos once you have had a chance to upload them!

    Regarding the missing Autopano plugin, I’ll look into that soon. I’m a little busy at the moment. Thank you everyone for your patience. Stereo photo maker should still work without it, just missing the auto align feature.

    May 30, 2012
    • Hey Neil, I also get the error message. Hope it gets sorted out!

    Brilliant bit of work, but the link to the Autopano software seems to be broken … have you a new one?

    Okay, I’m having an absolute blast with this. Taking photos for the newspaper this morning, of National Police Officers standing at attention with Sokehs Rock (Pohnpei, Micronesia) in the background. Since they were still (for the most part) I took my first stereographic photo. While it is not perfect (one officer moved) it’s great to see the 3D effect of the offices in front of the lagoon and Sokehs rock rising behind them. The net effect is that I am looking for more 3D opportunities which means that I am thinking more “photographically”. I had lost that for a while. This is fun if nothing else!

  • The broken link to Autopano-SIFT has now been fixed. Sorry for taking so long to address this!

  • My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Would you offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome website!

    Yes can any 3d glasses be used to view these images in 3D. I ask because it seems all manufacturers sell there own 3D glasses

    Thanks steven

    I really enjoyed your post. Very useful!

    How long did you make 3D photos?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
