3D anaglyph photos

I found some instructions for making 3D anaglyphs (the pictures you need to wear glasses with different-colored lenses to see) on Photoshop here, so this has become my latest nerdy hobby (you PC users can also use the free program Callipygian 3D to make 3D pictures--see the instructions here). To view these you need 3D glasses, but you can get a free pair from this company by sending in a self-addressed stamped envelope (they won't record your address to put you on a mailing list or anything--I emailed them and asked about this, to allay my mom's worries). Just make sure that in your note you ask for a pair of red/cyan glasses, not red/blue glasses, 'cause you need the amazing powers of CYAN to see color anaglyphs. Besides my page, 3D glasses come in handy for seeing a bunch of other stuff on the web, like some of the pictures from the Mars rovers...I've listed a few of these pages in the "3D links" section at the bottom.

3D images made from pairs of movie/TV frames

If you have a scene on a DVD where the camera is panning sideways while the characters onscreen are keeping fairly still, then you can use nearby frames as the left eye/right eye parts of a single 3D picture. Sometimes there'll be a few parts of the scene that were moving so they'll show up as double images (or just look like they're at the wrong depth), but this technique works pretty well if you find a good scene. My computer won't do screen grabs from DVDs, but I made a bunch of these while I was at my parent's house serving jury duty, I'll probably add some more next time I go back there.

Ye olde stereoviews

After making some 3D photos of my own, I figured I could use the same technique to convert old stereoviews (3D pictures that were popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s) into anaglyphs too. Some of these I got from pictures people posted on eBay auctions, and some I scanned from the books California in Depth and The Civil War in Depth (I figure this is OK since the copyright has expired on the pictures themselves).
