About the Image(s)

This is another 3D conversion using SPM 2D - 3D depth map. It’s an old family photo of myself and my twin brother dressed up in military consumes. The only layers in Photoshop are me and my brother. The light and dark places on us were done with the dodging and burning tools in PS at low opacity so I could do it many as times as needed to get the affect I wanted. The rest of the depth map was started all black and I dodged the areas I wanted to get lighter. One thing I discovered real fast is SPM can only move the parts of the image using depth map by one pixel. The first image I converted was real small (~1M pixels) and the grass on the lower right ended up in steps not evenly sloped. The final image I used for depth map conversion was greater than 20M pixels and I reduced it after I was finished. I can remember WWII, war tax tokens, little or no gas to drive around and always the war news reals at the movies.

Your technique has worked well with good stereo between you and your twin from the background. You are getting the process towards perfection. I also remember the war with the city, Nottingham, that I lived in at the time being bombed.   Posted: 06/12/2020 15:57:27

David, You are getting very good at the 2D-3D depth map process. Interesting approach that you start black and dodge the areas the you want to get lighter. I will have to try that; since I start light and make background darker in the areas that I want. I don't mind that you and your brother appear in front of the window. I guess we are about the same age since I remember war news-reals at the movies.   Posted: 06/13/2020 17:18:03

Great 2D to 3D conversion. This image looks very nice. Only minor problem is window violation. Nice work.   Posted: 06/24/2020 10:45:24

This is the best one of you and your brother. The space between you is still a bit undefined, as is the tree and the structure in the right background. Otherwise this is excellent!   Posted: 06/28/2020 21:54:53
