7 images only, explained


Our most commonly asked question is, "why can I only add 7 images to my reel? Can I get a reel with more?" The question makes a lot of sense when you look at the reel and see 14 image slots.

The short answer is no, 7 is the magic number, no more, no less. And here's why...

Since 1939, viewers like ours have been designed to look in with each of your eyes independently. Your right eye looks in the right side, while simultaneously your left eye looks in the left side. Therefore, you need to have the same image on each side in order to view it properly.

If you put a different photo on each side, your eyes would go crazy, try to combine both images together, and see something like this:

And that's it! Hope this helps clarify!
