I find the cross-eyed stereo images hard to cope with. I can see the depth effect but it gives me eye strain and I don't enjoy it.

I recall some ancient monochrome stereo pair images - sepia I think where you looked through a fairly simple viewer and there was no eye strain. You would buy boxes of the pairs, people did famous landmarks etc. I haven't seen one in quite a while, they are probably all in museums now. I also recall seeing specialist still cameras that take two images side-by-side and of course modern action movies can be in stereo.

Is there a modern full colour equivalent for still macro work? What sort of gear do you need to create the image pairs and to view them?

Hi Dee, welcome aboard!

You can easily transform a cross eye stereo to a parallel stereo, an excellent free software is StereoPhoto Maker.
Then you can view it with a stereo viewer like https://www.berezin.com/3d/pocket_3dvu.htm.

This is what I use after Rik's recommendation and works great.

You can create both kinds of stereo images with the same software, Zerene Stacker built in synthetic stereo is a great tool.

... just a note, the Pocket 3Dvu work perfectly but they are extremely fragile. The ear pieces where they attached to the glasses snap off easily. Even so they are excellent and still can be used if broke. I've had 4 pair (3 of which I've given away).

It is also possible to use a mobile phone and a VR viewer.

Google's Daydream viewer (compatible with their excellent Pixel phones and other high end Android mobiles) are a cheap way to get very nice stereo (and VR) capabilities. Recommended . . . Daydream is on sale for the next week or so, a bargain at $49 for folks with compatible phones.
