   This page is made by a french stereo-photography fan. (Sorry for the style of this text, but if the Web has made the world a "global village", I write in my "international patois".)

3-D images are exceptional to find. I have search it on the World Wide Web. Yes, I have found some, but few.
I've been taking stereo photography in the French Alps, since 30 years. So I decide to publish my own.
I choose the anaglyphe for this presentation. If you want to see anaglyphe, TAKE A PAIR OF RED AND CYAN GLASSES and go on.

anaglyph with stereocopic effect
It exist some others methods to watch 3D. Clic on the picture here under:
usual photography without stereoscopic effect

I put a 3D version before a traditional version of this slide, so you can best view the difference. Traditional slide is very flat and a little bit sad, isn't it.
I have not enough room and it's time consuming to give the comparison each time (but try this), so I never give it after. But believe me, it's always very impressive. But now the subject is image in 3D.

What sort of enhancement gives the 3-D glasses?
For me, 3-D don't give a more realistic view of the mountain, but in some manner 3-D give a part of the feeling I have in the mountains. Now you can judge.

Some explanations on stereoscopy (in French) :
Why it is not current ? Why always take glasses to see 3D ? .... You have my opinion on.

How to make his own 3D slides :
(surely more beautiful than this ones)
Try to do your own. It's a little bit more complicated than classic photography but your work will surprise yourself.

The defects of a publication with anaglyph (in French) :
As you have already seen, anaglyphe is not perfect. You can see on this page 5 others methods to see 3D on PC screen, and you can compare.

3D zoom panoramic photograph : (in French) :
To walk its glance in the details of the image is one of the magic of the stereoscopic picture. Here is images of several Million pixels where you can zoom in. Ready to choose your best framing?

An example for 3D drawing :
It's good to take 3D photos , yes, but it's better to make 3D drawings.
(Visit also Philippe Coudray site)

Virtual images and true 3-D :
If you used some 3D drawing computer program, don't forget : do the rendering in stereo. It is realy amazing. Herre is some examples : monolithe, pin forest, prisme glasses and stereoscopes.

3D photo from the sky :
Here is a rule to do 3_D images during a travel by plane. As J.E. Toulemonde try it.
Aerial stereophoto is one of the most important usage of stereo in science. Here is an example.

A collection of 3D web's bookmarks :
This collection is not exhaustive. It just some good knot I found on the web, where you can find 3D images and professional product.

Collectors :
S. Gauthier compil all the Lestrade catalog. Also some data on Bruguière and Romo

A 3D (stereo) computer software.

Sorry, I have not translated all pages of this site. I think you come to see images, so this translation is sufficient. If you want explanation, you can find it from the web link's page. My explanations are a little bit different, but to know it you have to read French.
