Wondering why you’re seeing so many three dimensional photos on your Facebook timeline? At the beginning of 2020, Facebook enhanced their 3D Photo conversion by allowing all users to readily convert their 2D Photos into 3D. The feature was initially implemented in October of 2018, however back then, users needed to have a dual camera phone to be able to convert on the Facebook platform (think iPhone X). Thanks to their recent improvements, 3D photos are now readily available for everyone, regardless of phone model! In this blog post, we’re going to explain how you can create 3D photos on Facebook in 3 easy steps and how it compares to using an actual 3D Photo application.

Step 1: Open up your Facebook timeline & Select “What’s on your mind?”

Step 2: Select the photo you want to convert into 3D & Select the “Make 3D” option

Step 3: See your final 3D photo!
