Move over, picture frames – there’s a new game in town. Companies all over the world are capitalizing on advances in 3D-printing technology to change the way we interact with our photos. Flat images are transformed into 3D creations you can touch, and this is just the beginning!
If you’re ready to take your pics to the next level, you have some options. Companies like Bumpy Photo will take your existing photo and convert it into a “popped” relief/ sculpture using depth map software. Think of the resulting effect as bumpy terrain on a map – the people and objects will “pop” out of a flat background, adding depth to the hard resin replica. Bumpy Photo won’t scan your photos for you, so they recommend you use a scanning service to get them ready.
