Recently, Facebook made a huge upgrade to their App by introducing an amazing feature called “3D photos”. 3D photos is a new way to share special memories and moments in time with a fun, lifelike dimension in both News Feed and VR. This technology literally captures the distance between the subject in the foreground and the background. 3D photos bring scenes to life with depth and movement. It’s a good thing you are here. You might just be one of the first persons to learn how to create 3D photos on Facebook.
Whether it’s a shot of your amazing looking workspace, hangout shot with your friends, or a beautiful spot from your latest vacation, the 3D photo feature on Facebook will make it look amazingly outstanding. Basically, you are required to take a photo with your smartphone in Portrait mode which should have a dual lens, then share taken shot as a 3D photo on Facebook where you can scroll, pan and tilt to see the photo in realistic 3D.
It’s amazing! Literally feels like you are looking through a window.
3D photos on Facebook can also be viewed in VR using the Oculus Browser on Oculus Go or Firefox on Oculus Rift. According to Facebook “Everyone will be able to see 3D photos in News Feed and VR today”.
