After capturing a photo using the Portrait mode on a compatible smartphone, you can share that 3D photo on Facebook to allow viewers to scroll, pan, and tilt while looking at it.

To get the best results possible, Facebook advises that you take pictures with a lot of contrast between the background and the foreground.

Facebook is rolling out 3D photos in News Feed and Virtual Reality (VR) to enable users to view and create 3D photos with life-like dimensions including depth and movement.

All Facebook users are in for a visual surprise, as 3D photos are about to appear in their feeds.

She recounted her horrific experience and said, "We were shooting for a night scene and I had taken a change of costumes to him". Traumatised and shocked by the incident, the woman added that she refrained from reporting the incident to Sooraj Barjatya.


In addition, the images can be viewed in VR using the Oculus Browser on Oculus Go or Firefox on Oculus Rift. The company says the ability to create and share 3D photos will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately the new feature just available for iPhones right now and there is no word on when it will arrive on Android devices. In the meantime, you can head to Facebook's blog to take a look at some tips to click 3D Photos like a pro.

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. There's no mention of support for Google's dual-pixel Portrait mode photos captured with the Pixel line. 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.
