AIBU to hate those 3D photos?

I probably am, but people keep putting them on FB and they make me feel queasy

I hate them too.

SushiGo Thu 21-May-20 10:33:27

I find them odd too. The normal 2d ones are fine and lovely!

SpacePug Thu 21-May-20 10:40:08

I don't see the point in them 🤷‍♀️

What's the difference between a 2D and a 3D photo if it's just a graphic on a computer screen? Does it animate or something, like an animated GIF? Or are we talking Magic Eye images where you have to stare at it and then a 3D object eventually pops out?

I like them personally.

misskatamari Thu 21-May-20 11:13:40

same, i really don't like looking at them, they confuse my brain. Annoying when scrolling down your feed and they automatically do it

Are these the ones that seem to move when you’re scrolling past? I hate them too. Someone posted one of their gorgeous baby but it freaked me out.

YANBU at all, I think they all look like a lasagne and if you stare long enough you start to see babies and demons! A 2D scan is much kinder on the eye.
I had a private scan quite early in my pregnancy for reassurance reasons due to privious losses, they tried to push the 3d scan on me until I explained d I didn't need to see my, thankfully perfectly healthy, baby looking like a lasagne demon!!

My colleague paid for 3 d scans throughout her pregnancy and it became difficult to know what to say about the scans as she was so excited and kept showing them to us.A male colleague took a great interest in one of them and said doesn't your baby have a really big nose but all your family do so that's ok, he'll grow into it. Quietest teabreak ever and no more scan pictures.

OP isn't talking about baby scans. Rather the 3D photos that move as you scroll that have been all over Facebook for the last week or so.

griselda totally brilliant grin

I've never seen one.

SoupDragon Thu 21-May-20 13:31:33

Having googled, I think they might look a little freaky with that movement but a frozen person.

nobodyimportant Thu 21-May-20 14:09:31

I'm laughing at the lasagne babies but no I'm not talking about scans. It's the 3d photos of anything and everything that people are posting on FB. And yes it's the way they move as you scroll past them that makes me feel ill.

My child was so ugly in mine that I cried. She looked like a sauce less chicken nugget.

It took me 20 minutes to choose the least offensive picture to have made into a key ring (as per my groupon package)

I don’t want my baby to look like molten cheese.

BeingATwatItsABingThing Thu 21-May-20 14:36:42

Following on from what PPs have said, I don’t like 3D scans either. The baby always looks weird. People share them and I struggle to comment on them because of the weirdness. My baby was the most beautiful thing when she was born but I’m sure she’d have looked odd in a 3D scan!

GreytExpectations Thu 21-May-20 15:07:18

Guys I don't think OP is talking about baby scans.... Its the 3d photos of everything that have been on FB for the last year or do

RozHuntleysStump Thu 21-May-20 15:09:26

no, I don't like them either. They give me motion sickness as I'm scrolling down.

BeingATwatItsABingThing Thu 21-May-20 15:12:56


I know. I’ve commented about both.

nobodyimportant Thu 21-May-20 15:24:22

no, I don't like them either. They give me motion sickness as I'm scrolling down.

It's a bit like vertigo I think.
