3D photos on Facebook Facebook

Facebook recently introduced the ability for users to share 3D photos in News Feed. Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook application on iOS. Also note, the only photos that can be shared in 3D are those taken in “portrait” mode using a compatible dual-lens smartphone.

Step 1: At the top of your Facebook News Feed, tap “What’s on your mind?” to begin creating a new post.

Step 2: Tap “3D Photo” in the post options near the bottom of the screen. Note: You may need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to see all of the post options before you can tap “3D Photo.”

Step 3: If you have any photos on your device that were taken in “portrait” mode, you’ll see these photos. Tap the one you want to share. The app will then turn it into a 3D photo.

Step 4: Tap “Next” in the bottom-right corner of the screen to add the 3D photo to your post.

Step 5: From here, you can continue editing your post as you normally would before sharing it. When you’re done editing the post, tap “Share” in the top-right corner of the screen to share it to your News Feed.
