I really love these 3D Facebook Photo features. Why? Because they’re so easy to create and they look amazing! 

There’s a couple of things I thought I’d cover to help you learn how to take the best 3D Facebook Photo, as well as how to upload and post it.

I’ll start from the beginning.


You’ll need:

  • An iPhone with a dual-lens camera – I personally use an iPhone X, Facebook only allows me to upload images taken using the ‘Portrait’ mode on the Camera. This is where both of the lenses on the iPhone are used to take a picture, one focussing on the background and the other focusing on the foreground. This then blends the two images together by understanding the Depth of the image in front of you. Something that is very important when Facebook tries to understand where the foreground and background of the image are.


  • The Facebook App – I’ve only seen the 3D photo feature on the Facebook app on my iPhone, not on my desktop. So I believe this is a ‘must have’ at the moment.


  • A Portrait Image – Just to reiterate, you can only upload images that have been taken using the Portrait mode on the iPhone. The models that can be used are currently anything newer than the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual lens camera.
