About Stereo Images
You may have red-blue glasses hanging around somewhere, but I recommend
the "Parallel viewing" method with one of these viewers: (In order of

is Parallel image. This is for use with special stereogram glasses,
While some people are able to trick their eyes to
merge the images without glasses, ("wall-eyed") most can not.
is cross-eye. With practice, many people can use this technique to view
the image without glasses. Start with a small window, and use your
finger half way between your eyes and the screen to focus your eyes.
The tricky part is then transitioning your gaze to the image without
losing the cross-eye.
is Color Analygraph. I do not recommend this mode with my photos,
because there is not enough red to make it work. It probably works fine
with more generic images.
is Half-color Analygraph. Use this if you have Red-Blue glasses.

different type of glasses.

The first 2 use plastic prism lenses, which may take getting used to, can't be adjusted, and have minor
color aberation. The second 2 use mirrors, and after adjusting the
mirrors for your screen size, are quite natural to view.
- Easy to carry, and just a few dollars each, it is limited to about a
6-7 inch wide image pair. It's great for portable viewing and for
handing out to others.

- new and relatively cheap mirror-based viewer. It's a good deal, easy to use, and portable.
- mounts on desk or monitor, and permits viewing fullscreen on a 24
inch monitor. Best for long term viewing of quality images.

You too can take 3D photos. With any camera, first take an image, and
then move the camera about 3 inches to the right, and take a second
image. Then use Stereo Photo Maker
from Muttyan to
combine and adjust the images into a stereo pair. The only catch is
nothing in your picture should move between the 2 images, which rules out most photos of people and animals. I have a small collection of images
taken with this method.

the Fujifilm W1
