How to create 3D photos (Android)

If you own a new generation Android smartphone, and more precisely one of the latest Huawei smartphones, you will be happy to know that your mobile device has an innovative native functionality in its camera which will allow you to take pictures with a three-dimensional effect.

From the moment this particular 3D shooting feature is present on the Android smartphone I own, I will focus the first part of this tutorial in explaining this feature, telling you in detail how to take advantage of this futuristic photo shooting technique.

In case you do not have a Huawei smartphone but only an Android smartphone, I still recommend that you check whether this feature is present in the camera settings of your device as this may be present in the latest generation smartphones. Alternatively, if you don’t have it, you can choose to use an application for making 3D photos like the one I’ll talk about in the following lines.

As for the new generation Huawei smartphones, the functionality relating to the possibility of taking a 3D photo is present within the app Camera consequently tap on it to start it.

From the main screen, then swype from right to left in order to view the section Mode. Through this screen, locate and tap on the wording 3D panorama in order to activate this innovative feature for taking a photo in three dimensions.

At this point you will have to frame the object, landscape or subject to be photographed and then hold your finger on the round button in the center to take the photo, after which you will have to move slowly and sideways to frame the subject or object from another lateral perspective following the directions of movement that you will see appear on the screen.

For a better result of the photo and the three-dimensional effect try to keep the mobile phone as still as possible and move slowly around the object or subject to frame it from the side. Once the processing of the shot is finished you will be notified with a message on the screen that will concern the deadline for processing the image taken.

At the end of the processing you will in fact be sent back to the photo shooting mode and you will be able to view the 3D image created on the screen by tapping on the thumbnail box that you can see located in the lower left corner. The photo you have taken will be marked with the wording 3D and, by tapping on it (located at the top of the screen) you will be redirected to the section that will allow you to view the image in three dimensions.

To view the image in three dimensions you will have to move your finger on the screen with a swype from right to left and from left to right or, more simply, you can choose to tilt your smartphone to see the different perspectives of the photo taken.

Keep in mind that, at the moment, the 3D shooting mode is still a feature not very common on smartphones and that this effect may not yet be natively supported in social networking or instant messaging applications.

How to create 3D photos (Android / iOS)

In case your Android smartphone does not have a native functionality in the app Camera for the creation of 3D photos know that it is not a problem as you can use an external application. In fact, in the following lines I want to talk to you about an innovative app that is available on smartphones Android And iOSwill allow you to take photos with this particular effect in three dimensions.

The application I want to talk to you about in this tutorial dedicated to the possibilities of making 3D photos is called Fyuse and it is excellent as regards the possibility of shooting and making in this mode.

It is indeed a very advanced application that, downloadable for free from the App Store for iOS smartphones or from the PlayStore for Android smartphones, it will allow you to create truly original photos.

At the end of the registration procedure, you may be asked to follow some users or to add friends registered to the application that have been found through the connection with social networks. However, keep in mind that you can skip all the introductory procedures and possibly carry out them later.

In this way you will be able to access the section relating to your profile and then tap on round button located at the bottom in order to activate the 3D photo shooting mode.
