Description

You can supply 2D or 3D images for this View-Master compatible reel, although of course only 3D images view as 3D in a view-master viewer – ordinary 2D photos look great though. We will need seven images (or seven stereo pairs) to make up one reel.

Technical notes:
The format of viewer images is landscape only, upright images won’t work unless severely cropped.
The final images on these reels are very small – just 11.5mm x 10mm – and work best with bold and colourful photos.

Please number your photos from 1 to 7, in the order you want them viewed, so that we can prepare the reels in the correct order.

If you are a Photoshop wizard then you can prepare your images to the correct size: 1240px wide x 1125px high @ 300dpi. You might find this Photoshop template handy for image preparation: Retro-View template

Image suitability

  • The format of viewer images is landscape only, upright images won’t work well unless severely cropped.
  • The final images on these reels are very small – just 11.5mm x 10mm – and work best with bold and colourful photos.

Our Retro-View reels have images that are a very square-ish rectangle in landscape orientation. This can’t be varied, it is part and parcel of the venerable View-Master system.

Therefore, care should be taken when choosing your images. While it is possible to use other shaped images without cropping, they don’t look great as they don’t make best use of the very small image space.

If you can find your way around Photoshop then you are welcome to pre-prepare your own images. Otherwise, we will, by default, intelligently crop your images to fit the Retro-View format. You will be sent a PDF proof of the images for your approval before we produce your reel.

Here below are some examples of what sort of images work and don’t work.

With our intelligent cropping the image fills the view and still makes a great image
