Facebook's 3D Photos is similar to images captured with a light-field camera, the technology separating the subject from the background to provide a depth of field separation.

Everyone can now view 3D photos and the ability to create them will open to everyone in the coming weeks. The feature was announced earlier in May by Facebook, during its "F8" event.

What is a Facebook 3D Photo?

These tips will help you to create good 3D Photos that you can post on your timeline or view using VR. As the name implies, 3D photos allow you to look at photos as if through a window.

How to view a Facebook 3D Photo?

Once done, users on the desktop, mobile or those experiencing Facebook in VR through Oculus Go's browser or Firefox on Oculus Rift, will be able to click and drag or move their head to see the photo's depth.

Facebook also shared a video of the whole process to show how you can create 3D Photos.

iPhone owners can capture the content using the iPhone 7+, 8+, X, or XS using Portrait mode. And no, your Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or LG V35 ThinQ will not work either, despite also offering dual cameras.

Unfortunately the new feature just available for iPhones right now and there is no word on when it will arrive on Android devices.

All you need to create is a new Facebook post through the official Facebook app, tap on the three dots for more options, and choose the 3D Photo option. Of course, since this is done through a ton of software trickery, the results are not always ideal and you don't actually get a 3D model of what you're viewing.
