Check this out. Stereoscopic 3D picture of tank.

Hi everyone, I havn't seen any stereoscopic images before done with fish tanks so i thought I'd give it a try. I attached one here but there will be a higher quality version in my gallery once its approved.

To view this, you need to sit back from your monitor and cross your eyes until the two images line up. The right is the left eye and the left is the right eye so it will appear in full 3D once you get it aligned and in focus...

What do you think? Little better than the flat version of most images hey?? Anyone else done this before...

That's really cool, though I can't quite get it. I get the 3d, but I can't quite focus the image all the way to get the details.

Thanks RogerMcAllen, and ya, it takes a minute to get used to looking at these. They become easier and easier as you adjust to them. I've done them lots with other 3D graphics and photography work, but never thought to try on the tank. It works best to start at least 3 feet away from the monitor (easier to focus), once you get the images lined up, just keep staring. You brain should eventually change your eyes to focus on it perfectly and then it will "jump" out at you. Looks great when it does!!

I can focus on them in less than 5 seconds now that I've done it lots before...

Oh one more trick. Once you get the images lined up, try blinking (as long as you don't move your eyes) that is often enough to trick your eyes into refocusing. That is how I figured these images out when I first saw them....

Here's another picture angle. This one seems to be easier to focus for me. Hopefully for you too.

Good luck.

you have to be able to cross your eyes easily. Then the trick is to move back, the further back the easier it is to focus. If your back 4-5 feet even, you should easily see it once you line up the images by crossing your eyes...

Does anyone else get these? Or is it some special ability I've always had??

Click on the Cross Eye view method, that is what my images use.
