  • If you ever even considered converting 2D images to 3D, now is the time to give it a try

This manual is focused on a newly developed, fast and simple 2D to 3D conversion method that uses the tools in the FreeWare, StereoPhoto Maker. This is a “must have” technique for 2D to 3D conversionists.

  • This quick and easy technique is explained in step-by-step detail.

Conversion of 2D images to 3D has been for me always a favored aspect of stereography. It is invariably a source of great pleasure to see a 2D image come alive in 3D, especially if it could not be captured originally in 3D way. Examples are; a treasured family photo such as the final image of the WWII Flying Fortress Bomber and her crew before it was shot down (see book cover), a painting that you love, or a photo which you originally made in 2D and now wish was 3D.

  • Everyone who sees your stereos will be saying,  How’d you do that?”

Consequently, the more complex aspects and subtleties of manual 2D to 3D conversion are not explored, but are covered in Mastering 2D to 3D Conversion, but which does not include this new technique.

This tutorial also contains extracts from two books; an extract from Super Stereo 3D, expanded and clarified with information found in the book, Mastering 2D to 3D Conversion.
