The most basic way to take a 3d picture of anything on your computer screen is to use the Paint or Windows Movie Maker program, available on virtually all Windows computers. Once you have loaded on your computer with this software, then you will find that the Paint program has a special feature called the “drop-down” option. Using the drop-down menu, you can change what is shown on your computer monitor in two ways. You can move your mouse cursor over the picture and drag it up or down.
You can also create a 3d photo cube screen saver by simply dragging and dropping the images you want to use as a background for your 3d picture cube screensaver. If you need to change the images on the screensaver, just click on the “change image” icon found in the screen saver itself. Your choice of images will be saved to your computer’s hard drive, and the new images will replace the ones currently there. If you wish to preview the new screen saver, you can simply right-click on the image and choose “Preview”. This will display the new image on your computer’s screen.
A 3d image of a cube can be made even more interesting by making a grid of the cubes and using it as a backdrop for your 3d screensaver. In the standard 3d screensaver, squares are drawn that represent the four corners of your cube. By moving your mouse over any square, the corresponding cuboid will appear. So, for instance, if you choose the corner of the cube that lies to the right (or to the left depending on the orientation of your monitor), you will have a square-shaped object of varying length. To make the object interesting and unique, make a grid of varying width and height.
To make it even more interesting, you can choose to have the picture rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise. You can also choose to have it flail back and forth like a kite. The best way to make an off-axis 1D screen saver is to put the 3d picture cube in the middle of your screen and then gradually move it off-axis by dragging the bottom left or right corner of the cube. It is quite amazing how a small change in the direction of motion will make a world of difference in terms of the appearance of your screen saver.
To switch from portrait mode to landscape mode, just select the cube in your display and then use the drop-down box near “Normal” to select “portrait mode”. In addition to rotating the picture, you can also pan the camera lens around to line up the square with your selected object. By selecting “zooms” from the graphic options, you can move the camera and view the scene through binoculars, allowing you to focus on a particular subject without taking away the rest of the image.
Select the “Freeze Picture” icon to prevent the rotation and panning from occurring automatically. To get a better idea of how this works, try to rotate a picture yourself to see how it looks. You can even use the Preview/Debug page to see how it will look on your display before actually saving the image. If you do not see any change after this process, then the picture probably has been damaged in some way and needs to be corrected.
