3D Porch is a New User Community for Sharing Stereoscopic 3D Photos

March 4th, 2011 · 2 Comments · General 3D News


While not quite the 3D Vision Live type of community for sharing 3D photos, the website 3D Porch made by Phil Dhingra offers simple and easy way for you to upload and share your 3D photos in different formats. It does not support direct viewing with 3D Vision, but you can download the photos in Side by Side or MPO format and then view them on your computer. You can also use the website as an online service to convert 3D photos from JPS to MPO format and vice versa if you don’t have an offline tool to do that at the moment. Other than that the website is primarily targeted at viewing 3D photos in anaglyph format, but as I’ve already said downloading them and opening them locally is also an easy option…

You need to upload a photo in JPS (Side by Side JPEG) or MPO file format and the author has tested the functionality with Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3, W1, and Sony DSC-TX9. He asks visitors to help with confirming the compatibility with other 3D cameras, so you are welcome to try and report back to him if it is working or not. He is looking especially for someone with a Nintendo 3DS to test the MPO files generated from the console when taking 3D photos with it, so this is a call to anyone in Japan who already has purchased the console. I’ve already tried the website with a sample photo taken with the Aiptek I2 camera, but due to the fact that this particular camera record photos in a squashed format (half horizontal size) they are not compatible for the moment.

    I wish someone would create a multiple upload option……

    Thanks for posting this. Multiple-upload option will be coming soon, probably after SXSW.

    I’ll get Aiptek cameras working very very soon, thanks for mentioning that one.
