I know there  are various groups and dedicated software for this, but recently had an interest and wondered if there were any tricks to using Qimage to do them. Read the very old thread here- http://ddisoftware.com/tech/qimage-ultimate/cross-view-3d-(stereo)-can-you-see-this/

I have a variety of cards that are 3.5" x 7" with images of about 3" x 3 1/4". Some are of low quality and halftone printed, some are actual photos mounted to the cards. I'm guessing my PRO-100 could easily best the printed ones, though this is really pixel peeping at its finest if you use a magnifying viewer.

Anybody else here interested in this stuff?

BTW, I can view them easily using the relaxed method, but can't see how anybody would put up with the strain of cross-eye viewing. I've also got an antique viewer. I need to build a camera slider to do the best job of it.

Sadly, I haven't done much with that since 3D TV's died out.  I still cheat on those "spot the differences" pictures where people post two pictures side by side and ask you to find the differences.  You can cross your eyes a bit and overlay the two pictures and all the differences stand out.  Smiley  Once you get used to cross viewing, it's no strain at all.  Your eyes do that naturally when you look at objects closer to your face anyway.

Mike

Ha! Same cheat I use with the spot-the-difference photos. I just wondered if I could get the benefits of Qimage to refine, edit and crop two photos, then get them placed to print on a single card. I suspect the needed positional fiddling is best done elsewhere, but figured it never hurts to ask.

Only way I know to do it would be to eyeball the alignment in the page editor.  Qimage doesn't have any tools to help with alignment of stereo images.
