    How to Add 3D Effects to Images and Videos in Windows 10 Photos app


    The Photos app included in Windows 10 is a universal app that allows you to enjoy, organize, edit, and share all your digital memories. It brings together photos and videos from all your devices, enhances them to make great photos even better, and organizes them into beautiful albums for you.

    The Photos app comes with a set of 3D effects like a swarm of butterflies, lightning, or a fireball that you can add to your images and videos to customize them how you like.
