Magic Wand Naked Eye Imaging Technique

To view 3D Dual Image digital photography requires one to cross one's eyes and so two traditional 2D photos become one cutting-edge 3D photo.
But how is this to be achieved? Easy, by the use of a magic wand held close to the face and focused on. Then moved slowly towards the photo to facilitate the 3D effect, perhaps moved around a bit too, so that you catch the 3D image almost teasing it into existence, and if you start to lose it then tease it back again.
But where do you get a magic wand? Just use a finger or a pencil or anything you can utilise to focus on. To use as an aid to facilitate your imaging.
With a bit of practice you'll soon get the hang of it and as the 3D image appears the effect is literally like the magic dust sprinkling off the Walt Disney's fairy's wand for you enter a new world, the 3D world as you exit the old 2D.
So powerful is this imaging technique that you'll even be able to view YouTube's selection of 3D dual image videos.


Production of 3D Dual Image Digital Photographs

Production of 3D Dual Image digital photograph involves combing two 2D photos into one 3D photo and, what follows, is a way of doing that using software you'll find on any computer utilising a Microsoft Windows operating system. That is the software is already installed on such a computer since it is provided gratis with the operating system. But, obviously, this isn't the only way.

STEP 1 You've chosen your subject and what you require are two almost identical images. And that is the key: almost identical. For as you take the second photo slightly change the camera's direction of shooting. As with everything to do with 3D Dual Image digital photography you'll learn by experience so do experiment with deliberation. Do you need a tripod? No, you'll get great results hand-held.
STEP 2 Download your photos onto your computer and select your chosen two by clicking-on them. They'll now both be viewable in Windows Photo Viewer . With each photo so selected click-on restore down in the upper-right box, between minimize and close, of Windows Photo Viewer . They'll now be both of a size such that they can be simultaneously displayed on your computer screen. Move them about so that they are positioned side by side and, if necessary, adjust them vertically so that horizontally the pictures are aligned.
STEP 3 Press Print-Screen (PrtScn) on your keyboard.
STEP 4 Open a program already installed on your computer entitled Paint . If you don't know where it is then you'll find it in the Accessories folder of All Programs which displays after you click-on the Start button.
STEP 5 You're in Paint and you click-on paste resulting in what you produced in STEP 2 being displayed. But it's probably too big to see it all. So at the top of the screen click-on on View and then click-on zoom out so that all is displayed.
STEP 6 Now it's time to crop your screen display reducing it to your original two 2D photos but taking care to trim off the outer vertical edges where the camera's movement has resulted in some differences to what will after cropping appear to be two identical photos. But they are not identical since movement of the camera has produced subtle differences, perhaps not noticeable to the naked eye, required to produce a 3D effect. So click-on on Home then Select followed by Rectangular Selection . You will notice that the cursor has changed and cropping can commence. Usually you'll find that a single rectangular crop will suffice.
STEP 7 On completion of cropping you can now use Paint to save what is your new 3D dual image digital photo and then view it using Windows Photo Viewer .

This may sound all rather complicated but with a bit of experience it will all become rather automatic like driving a car and you'll often be able to evaluate your pictures at STEP 2 . If you require a white bar between the two images then utilise Shapes in Paint before saving your 3D photo.
