Viewing Parallel format pictures
- Look wide-eyed at the screen until the left and right images fuse together to a single 3D image ("Free Viewing"), or a viewing aid like "Pokescope" may be used.
Viewing Cross-eyed format pictures
- Hold up your finger close to your eyes in front of the picture and look at the finger cross-eyed.
- You should see one finger and not double vision.
- The two images should fuse into one stereo image behind the finger. Keep viewing cross-eyed as you focus on the fused picture.
Using Red-Blue Anaglyph Glasses
- Anaglyph viewing is available in HTML5 Stereo Viewer, StereoPhoto Maker and other applications but does not work well with several of my pictures. In fluorescent mineral collecting, color is everything, and the highly saturated, nearly monochromatic colors emitted by some minerals would be very difficult to reproduce in an anaglyph.
