Adding a parallax effect to your photos does not require special gear or special skills. Facebook for iPhone lets you easily convert any static picture into a 3D photo by adding depth and movement to it. To try it out for yourself, follow the instructions given in the post to create the Facebook 3D photo.

Create Facebook 3D Photo on a new iPhone

Facebook 3D Photos feature relies on the ‘Portrait mode’ capabilities available only in new, higher-end smartphones like iPhone. It adds movement to timeline photos by leveraging the depth information captured by Apple’s dual-camera iPhones. To create a Facebook 3D post, follow the instructions given below!

  1. Open your Facebook account.
  2. Go to your timeline.
  3. Tap Create Post.
  4. Choose photo/video in Portrait mode.
  5. Click Make 3D.
  6. Share the post to your Timeline.

You can share 3D photos from your News Feed, a group or a Page.

Open your Facebook account and go to News Feed page.
