How to create 3D photos

Train your camera to 'use both eyes'.

3. Attach the slide bracket to a tripod, making sure it’s horizontal. Put your camera on the bracket at the lefthand side, ensuring it touches the rear support. Take a shot and slide it 70mm to the right, again making sure it remains in contact with the rear support. Now take a second shot.

4. A slide bracket will give excellent results only if the scene is stationary. A universal solution is to get hold of two identical cameras and mount them side-by-side using a home-made bracket. Be sure the settings are the same for both and use a remote control so that both shots are taken at exactly the same time.

5. Open the lefthand image in your chosen image editor (we’ve used Corel Photo-Paint X3). Select Paper Size from the Image menu then, in the Paper Size dialog box, select Center Left from the Placement pull-down menu and Pixels. Enter a value in the New Width box that’s double its original value before clicking ok.

6. Adjust the zoom level so that your image fits on the screen. Select Import from the File menu and choose your righthand image before clicking Import. Click into the blank, righthand portion of the screen to drop the second image there. Now drag it so it exactly fills the empty righthand side of the onscreen image.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
