    Having obtained a Fuiji Finepix W3 and toyed around with 3D picture taking, it was time to get editing.

    But how?
    Lightroom and Adobe in general do not support MPOs (Multi Picture Objects), so how is one to effectively edit their pictures?

    After doing some research and testing, I found a pretty nifty (and free!) way.

    Materials:
    MPO Split (splits the Jpegs inside the MPO)
    StereoPhoto Maker

    1- Drag the .mpo onto mposplit.exe (splits images into: 1st Left // 2nd Right)
    2- Edit Both jpegs with "AUTO SYNC" in Lightroom or similar. It's important that both images are edited in the exact same fashion.
    3- Open stphmkre.exe
    4- Open L/R Images
    5- Easy Adjust or Auto Align to get an idea (Note: Auto Align does not always yield best results)
    6- You can use Coloured Glasses (Red//Cyan) in Easy Adjust and trust what you see using them
    7- Note the Parallax adjustment and save as Anaglyph
    8- You can click on "Alignment mode" to go back to default.
    9- Combine and save as .mpo (First Left // Second Right) or Anaglyph JPEG for use with coloured glasses.
    Optional:
    10- Go to Fuiji SeeHere or Snap 3D to bring your images into real life.

    TA-DA!

    Now, there are other free programs, but they leave watermarks.

    Check this program out: 3D Software: Anaglyph Maker by Takashi Sekitani

    When u really want to get serious about 3d, ditch the digital and buy a medium format film stero camera, like the sputnik. You'll be amazed at how amazing medium format slides look.

    Sweet, thank you very much!

    But that's just the thing, I do not like Anaglyph. I prefer Lenticular, glasses free.
    By that I mean, without the red/cyan. I find it takes away from the image.

    PS: Your avatar has always looking like a Gorilla Ninja Monk (to me) due to the batton. Holding it out, starring down the evil doer, ready to fight.

    [ADDED] After trying out the software you sent a link to I have to say that StereoPhoto Maker is much, MUCH better. Precise and detailed sliders, MANY more options (Such as half coloured Anaglyph or Dubois which looks much prettier).

    Thank you for the thought though, I will most definitively be printing out some Anaglyhs :)

    All 3d sucks compared to medium format slides. ;)Heck even the half 35mm frame realist format is better then all this modernized computer junk.
