How to make 3D photos on Facebook from 2D photos

Because as strange as it may seem now, photographs continue to be published on Facebook, and the editor of the app offers more functions to retouch images. This time, we are going to see some examples that better visualize the way to convert a normal photo into 2D, to a three-dimensional perspective.

What are you thinking

It is not a direct question, but it is there where we have to go when we enter the Facebook app. Once there, we look down at a small arrow pointing up, and pull it with our finger. We will see the option 3D Photos, which will take us to the gallery to select a specific image.

Automatically, our photo will go from being normal to having a three-dimensional appearance, thanks to Facebook's editing engine. At the end of the brief process, we already have our creation ready for all our followers to see, and with a simple gesture of the finger or turning the mobile, you can see the optical effect that the image does.

With this the work will be finished, but be careful, because in some the effect is not fully achieved and in others, there is no 3D effect directly. The latter occurs because, as the editor says, not just any image works, a large landscape is not the same as a closely focused object.

Not everything goes to be 3D

To achieve this three-dimensional vision, we must bear in mind that the program has trouble collecting information from certain situations. In fact, the photo must be of an object that do not show transparencies like plastic, or have reflective parts.

On the other hand, images with overexposure can give rise to a worsened 3D effect, with a visible drop in its quality. Another case that we must avoid is that of capturing an object of large dimensions or that is somewhat long, since it cannot collect the object in its entirety.

It is true that there are many limitations, but keep in mind that it is an integrated function of Facebook, not a standalone app. The best exponents of a perfect photograph for this effect are small objects, close to the camera with a background to give depth to the image, and if it can be in natural light, better than better.
