How do I take 3D food picture with 3DAround?

Look at your food from the side and make sure the iPhone icon is in the center of the screen and turns green. Press the record button and move smoothly and slowly from left to right. Try to move around steadily, while keeping a constant distance to your food.

Whats the Expert Mode?

If you have some 3DAround practice and you are up for a challenge, try out the expert mode. This will give you a full 360 degree view of your food! You can set the expert mode in the settings in the top right corner of your screen.

How do I capture in Expert Mode?

Move around your food in a circle from left to right, keeping the distance to your phone constant as you go all the way around. To get the best results, move your iPhone slowly around your food. Remember to hold your phone normally, there’s no need to turn it around as you go around! Think of your phone as a stir stick, the camera should always face the centre as you stir around.

The Expert Mode might take some practice, but the results will blow your mind!

Do you have any tips for taking great captures?

Yes we do!
Make sure, there are plenty of yellow dots before you start your capture. This will help 3DAround to give you a better result. The more colorful and textured your food is, the better your captures are going to be. And of course, try to avoid flat dishes like soup or pizza ;-)

How do I share a capture?

Tap the share button in the lower right hand corner of your screen and choose where you want to share it!

How do I keep my capture private?

Under settings toggle the switch, “Public by Default” to off. This will make sure only you can see your 3D pictures. Please remember though, by keeping it on public, it will allow us to put them onto our website and select your most amazing 3D pictures as our staff pics!
