3D jpeg formats.

Most 3D still images in either JPS, MPO or PNS format.


JPS is really just two separate images in a JPEG file with a different extension. It contains two identically sized pictures arranged side by side. If you view this picture in a JPG viewer, you'll see the right eye view on the left and the left eye view on the right.

Mime type="image/x-jps"

DepthCharge is a free plug-in for Netscape and Internet Explorer. It allows you to view JPS files in web pages. I find it does a great job and it allows you to display pictures in a large number of different formats.

The format is proposed as an open standard by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) as CIPA DC-007-2009. It contains multiple JPEG images with respective thumbnails and metadata

Here is the standard that defines it:

The PNG Stereo (.pns) format consists of a side-by-side image based on PNG (Portable Network Graphics).
