LucidPix app turns photos into 3D, and Facebook feeds will never be the same – CNET

Whether you have a new phone like the iPhone 11 or an older one like a Motorola Moto G6 or iPhone 6S, you can now take 3D photos with your camera. It’s all thanks to a new app called LucidPix. Instead of requiring a special accessory or two rear phone cameras, the app uses artificial intelligence (AI) to render 3D photos that will move as you tilt and pan your phone.

LucidPix will be available on both iOS and Android later this year, though you can sign up now on the LucidPix website to get early access. The app will be free with a watermark embedded on your photo, but for $1 per photo it can be removed. The free version is aimed at casual users and lets people try the app out before paying for the “Pro” version. The Pro version includes unlimited use of the app for $6 per month or $52 a year.
