Facebook 3D Photo: Facebook Now Lets You Create 3D Photo Without a Portrait Mode Camera


The 3D photo feature was introduced by Facebook in 2018. The feature really helps in giving ordinary photos the effect through which they looked more life-like with an additional dimension. The pictures didn’t look 2D but looked 3D. To use this feature, users are expected to have a phone with two rear cameras. 3D images can be created by taking two shots of the same scene where one is a little balance to the other. The little difference could trick your brain into thinking you are looking at an image with expanse or intensity.
