How do I create a 3D photo on Facebook?

To create 3D photos on Facebook from a computer, you'll need to create a depth map file. To share 3D photos without this, log into the Facebook app for iOS or Android.
You can share 3D photos from your Feed, a group or a Page. Keep in mind that you'll need to be an admin or editor to post a 3D photo from a Page.

Computer:
To post a 3D photo, save 2 files on your computer:
  • The image you’d like to use: Save in .png or .jpg format.
  • A depth map for the image: Make sure your map has "_depth" appended to the file name (example: myImage_depth.png) and has the same aspect ratio as the image you're using.

  2. Select your two files (the image and the depth map), then drag and drop your files onto your post. When the files are added to your post, the 3D image will be created.
  3. Click Post.

Keep in mind:
  • 3D photos can’t be edited. If you edit a photo using Facebook, your computer or a third-party app, you may not be able to convert it into a 3D photo.
  • If you’d like to share a 3D photo, you can’t add multiple photos to a post. Only one 3D photo can be shared at a time.
  • At this time, 3D photos can't be added to an album.
  • If you're posting a 3D photo from a Page, 3D photos can't be boosted or used in ads at this time.
