If you are taking 3D photos you should be aware that there are not that many places where you can upload and share them in their stereoscopic 3D format where people can also see them in 3D. The website Phereo is one of these online 3D communities (the 3DVisionLive 3D photo section is based on the same software) and it also has support for viewing 3D photos using 3D Vision directly from your browser in stereoscopic 3D format along with anaglyph 3D, parallel, wiggle and of course the most common 2D format. If you want to post some of these photos you’ve uploaded to Phereo or photos somebody else has shared there on your personal blog however it may not be that easy, hopefully there is an easy solution at least for the WordPress-based blogs. A plugin called 3D Pix that makes it really easy to embed the 3D photo viewer from Phereo with a photo you want it to show using a shortcode and passing it the id of the 3D photo. It can’t get any simpler than that and you can see an example of the free WordPress plugin above with the embedded 3D photo from Phereo.

On his website Christian Roux provides access to a lot of photographs taken by him from different places around the work and while most of them are in 2D, there are some interesting 3D photos in MPO format also available. The photos are in provided in lower than the original resolution they were shot in and the author is also selling the full resolution versions if you are interested. Some of his 3D photos are also available in anaglyph 3D and there are also some 3D videos available as well, all of them were shot using the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3.

Imagen3D is a a free photo editor developed from the start to enable the adjusting and editing of stereo 3D photos, supporting multiple popular formats such as Anaglyph, Side by Side, Top/Bottom, Row Interlaced and so on. The application offers most of the basic tools used by other programs for editing and photo retouching, but they have been adapted for use with stereoscopic 3D images. The program is free and works quite well, it has a portable version as well as an installer, so you can have it handy even on an USB flash drive. It is intended for use on non stereoscopic 3D capable displays and you can preview the photos you are editing using a pair of anaglyph red-cyan glasses or with the cross-eye viewing method. And you can of course export a 3D photo and then open it inside a photo viewer supporting 3D Vision for example, but you cannot run the 3D photo in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision right from the application itself.
With this program you can do most of what you are usually doing in a normal photo editor with 2D photos, but with 3D ones instead as there are actually not that many stereo 3D photo editors available yet and doing even some of the most basic things like cropping a 3D photo can be problematic if you don’t have the right tool. Of course there are some specific things required to be done only on 3D photos and the pretty much the only drawback is the inability for direct full-screen preview on a 3D-capable solution such as 3D Vision. But Imagen3D can be quite useful in cases when you need to do some adjustments on a 3D photo, but you don’t have a 3D display at the moment, you just need to have a good old pair of paper anaglyph glasses lying around and you are ready to go.
