if this is the wrong place to ask, i’m sorry. I figured i would start with PS.

Has anyone seen TV commercials or documentaries that show old photographs that have a 3D effect?

almost like someone separated the foreground and the background to different layers and "shadowed it."

anyone know how this was done? plug-in? technique? other application?

or how to make 3D from 2D pics without the glasses?

just curious.

You cant make 3d images from one image without without using some form of glasses unless you make a sterogram! On tv more than likly it’s a modren ‘real stereo image’ (two or more images) then aged to make it look like an old fashioned photograph.

Now 3d effect that’s possible just using shading and shadows but do you have an example (URL) of the type of image your aiming for.


Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.

Or an old stereogram. These used to be wildly popular.

Check out a program called OpticBOOM. You still need left and right images though.

I know what you mean – create an illusion as if it were a 3D image, of sorts.
See this image. Forgive, but it’s the only thing I have on-hand. http://elearning.winona.edu/staff_o/jjs/test.jpg

That is a perfectly flat picture. It was done thus:

Using the Polygonal Lasso Tool (main pallet)
Select out the image.
Copy it to a new layer.
Edit – Transform – Scale the new layer to bring it forward a bit. Double-click on the new layer and give it a deep shadow. That’s all there is to it!

(The editorial point of this image was to show the land owned university pictured in color.)

So you might try the same, pasting different parts to new layers, varying the shadows depth and angle to kinda-sorta-look 3D. If you post an image, I can whip out a visual example of what I mean.

Are you talking about if you watch on the History channel, they do a cool effect where it seems the foreground of the picture seems to be moving and not the background or vice versa. Where they take a real image (older photograph) and some how make it "come alive" in the way the camera moves.

no url yet, i cant find it. im not even sure what to Google?

i thought it was the modern way of using two pictures, but then i saw a documentary on the history channel and all the old pics of Hitler were done that way. so, someone is converting it.

YES! that is where i saw it. that is what i am talking about!!

you think it is a plug-in of some sort?
or what Lorem talked about in the previous message with the lasso tool and layer and shadow?

or is there something that will work it, kind of like realviz panorama.

You’d only see the effect with an animation, so Photoshop is not the tool to use.

Can’t seem to even imagine what effect we are talking about here but I’d be interested to see one and have a go. If they are using pics of Hitler I recon it’s an effect rather than true 3d.

Let us know if you find one.

It’s not a cut out is it? Where they cut say Hitler out of an image then place him 3 inches in front of a different image of say the Eiffel tower and move the camera, giving a kinda seudo 3d effect.

In motion picture work it was called a Traveling Matte. In Photoshop terms it is a mask, or a new layer with transparency. In either case you still have to isolate the element you want to move forward. No such plug-in that I know of. A little exploration of the photoshop tools is in order.
