You can now create 3d photos from 2d images on Facebook #Article

Thanks to Facebook's ability to simulate image depth, Facebook has released a new feature that allows users to transform 2D images to 3D images.

Facebook has 3D options which it first released in 2018. That had already launched 3D image posts back then and later published the same for Stories. But until now, Facebook had used multi-camera features in high-end devices to enable any image to have 3D depths. And now every computer will be able to do so with this new addition.

Facebook declares:

'The 3D Photos feature [hitherto] relied on the dual-lens 'portrait mode' capabilities available only on new, higher-end smartphones, so it was not available on traditional mobile devices with a single, rear-facing camera. To introduce more users to this new visual format, we used state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to create 3D images from virtually any standard 2D image.

The first thing you need to do is to update to the latest Facebook version if you want to try out the addition. Tap 'What's next in Your Mind? Switch on your News and go through the choices. You'll see an option to add' 3D picture,' once you tap that you'll be taken to your computer gallery where you can pick an image from. Choose the image of your choice and Facebook will convert it to 3D.

Although it isn't fully 3D, and is more like a 3D simulation, when tilting the machine it gives a similar effect.

Facebook used image recognition and object detection to make the option come alive on multiple image samples.

The latest technological advancement from Facebook will make your posts look more interesting. And in the future we would expect Facebook to plunge deeper into AR and VR, with more innovations in this area.
