Facebook 3D Photos: How to create, post, and share 3D photos using your iPhone

Facebook 3D Photos

Originally announced during the F8 developer conference in May,
Facebook is now rolling out support for 3D photos in News Feed and VR headsets. The company says the ability to create and share 3D photos will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Here’s how to create, share, and view 3D photos in News Feed and VR headsets like Oculus Rift.

What is a Facebook 3D Photo?
The AI-powered feature, which lets users post 3D photos to their news feed and VR headsets, uses the portrait mode of the iPhone and other smartphones with a dual camera setup on the back. Basically, Facebook takes advantage of the portrait mode to display your 2D photos in 3D, using the depth information between the subject in the foreground and the background.

How to view a Facebook 3D Photo?
Users can also view 3D photos in VR using the Oculus Browser on Oculus Go or Firefox on Oculus Rift. To view a 3D photo from a phone, all you need is to scroll or tilt your device to change the perspective.

Compatible Devices
To use Facebook’s 3D Photos, you’ll need to have the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. According to The Verge, a “3D Photo” feature will come to Android-powered flagship smartphones (the ones featuring a dual-camera setup on the back) such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and LG V35. But at the moment, the feature is not available on those devices.

• To get the best results your subject should be 3 or 4 feet away.

• Try to capture scenes with multiple layers of depth (like a shot of your family standing in a field of flowers).
