Got interested in some stereoscopic pics and wanted to learn how it was done. Checked up on it online and tried it out with this first example. I took a Tony Taka pic and altered it with the information i learned. It turned out better than i thought.
I have a 19" monitor, and keeping your head about 2-3 feet away should get you some good results.
If you are new to stereoscopic pics, you try to cross your eyes to combine the two pictures into one. Then it should look 3D.
I just used photoshop to alter the picture, no special programs required.
