3D images was created by michaeloconnell
I recently figured how to turn an ordinary image in something which the eye percieves as 3D.
Here's an example:

For this example, I used an image of Saturn which I had captured previously.
You need to relax your eyes and allow them to cross.
See the 3D effect??

Hi,

The effect is best with your moon images, the 3D saturn image still looks fairly `flat` to me, whereas the moon does seem to be spherical.

Very cool though, how do you do it? :)

Cheers,

Open the image in Photoshop.
Filter-->Render-->3D Transformation.
Select a sphere which you highlight around the object and then select a camera field of view of about 25-30 degrees.
You sometimes may notice that due to deformations, it actually makes the object go outside the edge of the canvas. To correct for this, enlarge the canvas before altering the image.
Then, with your resultant image, copy it across and voila!

Al,
I just tried the Saturn image to see if I could make the 3D more pronounced

Is this any better? Both work fine for me with the rings distinctly appearing to go behind the disc. However, this sot of thing is very subjective. Different people react and read the images differently.

It does look abit 3D to me, thats very surprising as I can never normally see these things, the first time for me was at the WSP this year, with the martian images using the red/green glasses.
Whats even more surprising is that I can see the image more clearly this way, as if it cancels out the pixels of the screen, a really cool effect.

Have you tried it on a deep sky image yet ?
