Cross eye method

cross eye

If you can do the Naked Cross Eye Method, no instruments required for viewing all contents of Our Stereo Pairs each consist of two photos or videos which have to be viewed using the so-called cross-eyed technique - you don't need special glasses. If you can look at the tip of your nose, you can view these - if not, you might need some practice!

1) Remove all unnecessary windows and toolbars from your screen so that you can see the complete image. Sit at a comfortable distance from your monitor - the closer you are to the image, the more you will have to cross your eyes! Looking normally, this is what you'll see:

2) Now cross your eyes. If this is difficult, look at the tip of your index finger as you bring it towards your nose - then, without uncrossing your eyes, look up at the screen in front of you. You should see the same blurred image repeated four times:

3) Concentrate on the middle two blurry images - they should begin to overlap and merge as you uncross your eyes slightly. Ignore the two outermost images:

4) Finally, the two images in the middle should "lock" into a single sharply-focussed and 3D image! Try it with the above Stereo Pair - the knees should protrude towards you, while the upper torso will recede somewhat. Keep your head level - if you tilt it sideways, the effect will be destroyed:

Once you get the hang of it, it should feel effortless and literally take a second to do! The better you get, the easier it is to look at bigger images - you should be able to let your eyes rove all over a picture without losing the 3D-effect.

About stereoscopy

Stereoscopy (also called 3D imaging) is any technique capable of recording three-dimensional visual information or creating the illusion of depth in an image.
