How do you make a reel using a retro viewer? Here is a detailed step-by-step guide for you.

  1. Name your Reel

The first step when creating reels is to name your reel. Naming makes it easier to distinguish when looking it up after you are done.

  1. Use of frames

Each reel has seven individual frames where you can add images and text. You work on a particular frame by clicking on it and adding your desired choice of photos.

  1. Adding Images

When you select the frame, you want to add the image in, you choose the ‘’add image’’ button and pick the photos you wish to use. You can replace a picture by just repeating the same process.

  1. Editing the image

When the image appears in the frame, you can use controls to adjust it to your liking. There are many editing options like cropping and moving to your desired size.

  1. Adding the Text

In the text options, select ‘’type here’’ to insert your texts, use the control buttons to adjust the size, color and font. You can move the text to the position you want, and in case you would like to delete text, select the text field and click on ‘x.’

  1. Rearranging Frames

Rearranging frames is achieved by dragging the frame in the row to your desired spot. Mixing frames allows you to sort your photos to your desired format.

  1. Center Art

Watch as the large photo box on the right changes to a circle as you select the center image. When you are finished, select the ‘done editing center image’ on the extensive process.

  1. Previewing and Approving your reel

When you are done editing the frames and center art, you preview the reel by clicking on the ‘preview reel’’ button on the lower right. Then you give it some time to process. Click next to preview all 7frames, and if you are satisfied, click on the Approve button. In case you are not happy, you go back and do more editing using the same procedure. If you don’t have time to finish your reel, you can save and continue later.

  1. Ordering Your Reel

After completion of your reel, you can purchase it from the account page. From there, you can save it on a cart.

Using your 3D stereo retro viewer to create reels is fun and attracts people of all ages. The process is simple, and the outcome is an impressive and straightforward 3D effect.
