Cross viewing is seeing 3D with nothing but your regular screen! The pictures here show two perspectives, just cross your eyes and make the two sides overlap to see the image in 3D. Tutorials and helpful apps on the sidebar/wiki/menu/about.
Accepting submissions of all forms (pictures, gif/gfys, videos). If things look 'reverse depth' then /r/ParallelView might be the place for you!
Cross view images, or side-by-side stereoscopy, is a cool way of seeing 3D pictures without needing technologically advanced screens or special glasses. Try this tester image in case things look "reversed" or weird to you (credit u/Logybayer). If parallel viewing is easier for you try our sister-sub /r/ParallelView/.
How To View:
Simply cross your eyes halfway between the pictures until both images overlap one another (3 images total), holding your view on the central image, and with a little patience, the image should 'push' into focus - you'll know it when you see it!

Best viewed with Reddit Enhancement Suite.
For YouTube videos: find the red 3D option, Select "No Glasses" and then select the "Cross Eyed" option underneath that.
Make Your Own!:
The simplest way to make your own cross view is to take one picture, move a little to the side, and take another, then put those pictures side by side. This is also known as the "cha-cha" method. Careful which side you put each image on! A few pointers:
When using the cha-cha method, it's best if nothing in the shot moves between each capture.
You'll want to move sideways somewhere between 1/30th and 1/12th of the distance to your subject.
Try to just slide sideways without turning at all.
There are apps that can make this very easy:
How to Make on computer/with a camera or phone:
For digital/drawn crossviews, Read this Infographic.
Or follow this video tutorial for real life images.
Or, pictures can be combined with Photoshop

WARNING: If you have any known problems with your eye muscles, it is recommend that you do not attempt this technique. If you experience any lightheadedness, headaches or other symptoms, STOP IMMEDIATELY and rest your eyes. Everyone will likely experience some slight eye fatigue when learning this technique, so it is very important to rest your eyes regularly, and only look at 3D images for short periods of time. Even once you have perfected the technique, do not over-exert your eyes. You have been warned.

Was running electricity for a new outlet this morning and figured the layers in the room might make a neat cross view. The blue circle is the fish tape I’m pulling. It winds its way through one of those conduits on the wall and pulls those rolls of wire up near the top of the ladder.
