This Is How You Do the 3D Photo Effect That's Taking Over TikTok

If you're up to date with TikTok trends, like this iPhone photo-editing hack or these viral pesto eggs, chances are you've seen its newest craze: a 3D photo effect. The effect — which is done on an outside app — transforms pictures into three-dimensional landscapes, bringing them to life and making them look, well, really freakin' cool. TikTok users are dubbing their 3D pics to the song "Phonky Town" by Playaphonk and adding the hashtag #3DPhotoEffect (which has over seven million views so far). Honestly, we're so here for it. If you're looking to hop on board this trend to give your pictures an extra bit of edge, follow these instructions:

How to Do the TikTok 3D Photo Effect

  1. Download the app CapCut
  2. Open the app and import a photo
  3. Tap "Edit"
  4. Tap "Style"
  5. Tap "3D Zoom"
  6. Save to camera roll

You can also upload multiple photos at a time if you wish. It's recommended to do 11 photos if you're looking to dub it to "Phonky Town," but you can play around with any song or amount of photos you want.
