Facebook briefly and vaguely announced their intent to roll out a 3D and VR photo option this past May, but users were left almost completely in the dark.
After months of Facebook’s announcement in May about the plan to add 3D photos to the platform, the company is now coming. In the next few weeks, you will be able to share your dog in 3D and VR (or just your friends) for the whole world.

Facebook briefly announced its intentions to launch a 3D and VR photo option, and briefly, in previous May, but users were left almost completely in the dark. It was not known when the facility would come or how to take a photo. On Thursday, Facebook finally announced the release of the release
When you go to updates, the option “3D photo” will appear in the list of post options soon, but only if you have an iPhone 7+ or more recent, then the rest of the world will have to wait for later versions.
Users, for example, can choose a picture of their dog from the “Portrait” folder because they are images that store layers of depth, and then they will be shown in a test post to ensure that Fido is correct . is. If you are happy with the result, you can caption and share it.
In fact, when users scroll over the photo of Fido, they will be able to tilt and rotate their phone.
It was a natural step for Facebook. The way 3D photos are optimized, it is done through a very similar movement of the user’s device – simple, gentle tilt. Therefore, before displaying our remaining pets, the festivals make a star, before that, enjoy the generation of late-generation iPhone users.
Facebook is offering a new feature, which lets you post 3D photos on the forum.
The feature uses Facebook’s AI to tailor the different layers, and when they are posted on the news feed, a normal 2D shot becomes three-dimensional.
It brings footage in life by adding depth and movement in the shot and is available from today.
3D Photos: Not really 3D, but still good
While the ability to post 3D photos is interesting, the feature does not actually make your shots tri-dimensional.
You will not be able to rotate any subject from any angle to see, but there will be enough depth to scroll, pan, tilt and see it with some different perspectives.
It is like moving your head to see the person standing behind the window with different angles.
Key Condition: A Dual Camera Phone
3D photo feature will only work on portrait mode taken by dual camera devices. Meaning, if you do not have a phone with two camera lenses, then Facebook’s AI will not be able to stitch the shots running.
How to use the feature?
To use the feature, you have to update the Facebook app and follow the routine process to post content on the news feed.
Just navigate to the ‘What’s in your mind’ section and choose ‘3D photo’ to choose portrait mode shot and post it with 3D effect, maybe even a caption
Role of Facebook’s AI in making 3D shots
As soon as you use the feature and choose Portrait mode photo, Facebook’s AI will analyze it with its layer to sew the photograph, if you have different perspectives.
Since both cameras work in portrait mode at the same time, therefore, AI takes advantage of the vertical difference (position of the subject seen from each camera) to create 3D photos.
Facebook tips to get the best 3D shot
According to Facebook, users should keep their subject 3-4 feet away to achieve the best 3D photo. In addition, it recommends taking photos with subjects of contrast with many layers of depth and their background.
