How to create 3D photos

Train your camera to 'use both eyes'.

11. If the left and right images aren’t correctly aligned vertically, use the U, D, 5U or 5D buttons to move the right image up or down by one or five pixels with respect to the left image. Also try the L, R, 5L and 5R buttons, which affect how far forward or back various objects appear.

12. To appreciate your completed 3D picture in all its glory you really need to view it in fullscreen mode – do so by clicking Full Screen. Pressing Esc returns you to AnaMaker’s normal viewing mode. If you aren’t entirely happy with the image, go back to step 11 and fine-tune it.

13. Mono anaglyphs will work with any photos but, provided your images don’t contain highly saturated red or cyan objects, you can also make anaglyphs in colour. For this you need to use red-cyan glasses. Simply repeat steps 10, 11 (if necessary) and 12, but select the Anaglyph Color (Red-Cyan) button in Step 10.

14. To save the anaglyph click Save 3D Image. Enter a filename and save the file in BMP format as a 3D image. Note that BMP is the preferred file format as Jpeg compression artefacts might affect the perception of 3D.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

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.
