Free-viewing Stereoviews

"Free-viewing" is seeing stereoviews in 3D without the use of a stereoscope. It will enhance your enjoyment of my listings and pages and will be of great benefit to you when shopping for stereoviews at shows, flea markets, etc. It is easier than you think. I was a dealer for at least a couple of years before I learned. After I did, I said to myself, "Wow! Why didn't I learn this before?"

  It will take some practice. Focus your eyes to infinity. Hold the card 12-18 in. away and raise it into the center of your field of vision maintaining infinity focus with your eyes. You may see 4 images at first or only 2. You may need to focus the image by moving the card closer or further away. You want to see 3 images with the center image appearing 3 dimensional. If the center image appears fractured, try to notice some dominant visual areas such as lines or white areas within the image(s) and cause them to converge (a mostly mental process). If you do this you will see three images with the center one being 3D. Your mind will mostly ignore all but the center image. It will get easier to do as you practice until it becomes almost automatic. It will be a new world! The practice will be worth it! My optometrist says this exercise is good for your eyes.

 A NOTE. I have noticed that I can free-view my monitor images best from around 20-24 inches away (practice with cards first if you are just learning). However, if you put out alot of extra cabbage to buy a really big monitor, the images may be too large for you to free-view easily. Sorry. These pages are designed for the majority of us who own 13-17 in. monitors and 800x600 lines. I find that I can free-view on a 17 in. monitor as well, but I have alot of practice..... You can still practice with cards though, which should be your major objective anyway.
