is a software program that can create an electronic 3-D
image from a pair of images for the left and the right eye.
You can view the 3-D images with common red-green glasses
so that the image appears to come out of your monitor. PicMaster
also supports viewing methods with shutter glasses, mirrors
and for free viewing. The help file describes the different
methods in detail. It shows you how to make your own 3-D
images with any photo camera. With PicMaster you can print
your own 3-D glasses. PicMaster can also convert the images.
For example a 3-D image for shutter glasses can be converted
into a 3-D image for red-blue glasses. The program rivals
for it's other photo manipulating features and comes with
one of the most versatile and unique library of filters
in any software package. The most unbeliveable part is the
software is only $29.90 to register.
State Fair View-Master® Reels
three-reel set was produced exclusively to observe the 100th
Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, Missouri, held during August
2002. The State Fair Centennial Committee wanted an item
of interest to both children and adults that would tie into
the Centennial Fair theme. Of course, 100 years ago, stereoscopes
were the television of today. The State Fair Commission
approved the production of the reels as one of the few items
to have the official Centennial State Fair logo on it. Only
1,000 sets were produced. Now that the fair is over, a few
sets remain and you can get them at the Missouri State Fair's
official Web site.
Reel A features images from the fair dating back to the
early 1900s. The reel includes photos of Presidents Taft
(1909) and Truman (1950s) at the fair.
Reel B and C feature 3-D images at the fair including alligator
wrestling, bungee jumping, Missouri State Fair mascot Bartholomule,
Hillbilly Bob, Buttons the Clown, prize winning produce,
BBQ contest, livestock, the huge carnival midway, antique
tractors and much more.

shot. Pro-Shades will significantly reduce or eliminate
problems with light refractions and lens flare from angles,
lens cleaning scratches, or imperfections from ruining your
3-D. If you want the best 3-D, use Pro-Shades.
Stereo Realists are classic 3-D cameras made in the 50's.
Over the years the cameras have experienced countless lens
cleanings. With each cleaning, the lens is subjected to
abrasive scratching. Lens scratching is a major problem
that causes poor contrast, haziness, and unclear photos.
Light actually is refracted off of any cleaning scratch.
This can make photos appear hazy or out of focus. You may
not see scratches with the naked eye, but under magnification
they are present.
Pro-Shades are designed to give you the best 3-D possible.
They are precision hand machined of the finest polymer materials,
and will not damage or scratch your Stereo Realist like
metal shades. Your 3-D will be improved! Just slide them
over the Stereo Realist lens like a filter.
You can buy vintage metal lens shades for over $60, and
they will destroy the chrome plating on the lens barrel.
Pro-Shades are designed to preserve the value of your Classic
Realist, and will not damage your camera. Pro-Shades exclusive
polymer is engineered to prevent damage to your classic

Secret Des Yeux
new book was recently published in France. "Le Secret
des Yeux" ("The Secret of the Eyes") contains
96 stereo black & white stereo pairs of classically
posed nudes, tastelfully tinted as in the old days of photography.
The author and artist, Philippe Assalit, carefully chose
his subjects and manages to re-create an "old-time
feeling". The coloring is very well made, and adds
the extra touch to the images.
There is one scene per color-printed page: the 2-D version
on top, and below, near the bottom rim of the page, the
stereo pair. This means that you can enjoy the detail of
a large image, and can then study the 3-D image later. Since
the stereo pair is located at the bottom of the page, you
can also use other stereoscopes (includng "Grandfather's
Holmes-type stereoscope"), if you wish to do so.
To order, you must be 21 years or older (all countries,
except except Europe, where 18 years is the minimum age).
