Depending on the size of the pictures, and how they're juxtaposed, you
can actually do this without anything special. I've been able to do this
for years. Attempt viewing by laying the pictures flat, then sorta let
your eyes go out of focus and move your face to and fro in a perpendicular
way. If you're right eye dominant, be offset to the right a bit.
