STEREOSCOPIC IMAGE DISPLAY METHOD
The present invention provides a stereoscopic image display method capable of performing stereoscopic display of an actually photographed image. One two-dimensional image I(i) is selected, and one pixel P(j, k) capable of being viewed from a corresponding viewpoint position V(i) is selected from among a plurality of pixels. A virtual surface B(i) with the selected two-dimensional image pasted thereon is assumed, and the virtual surface is arranged so that an image center point of the two-dimensional image corresponding to a center of an object coincides with a center of a display surface. Next, a virtual extension PL that extends from the viewpoint position V(i) to the virtual surface B(i) through the selected one pixel P(j, k) is assumed.
A color on the two-dimensional image assumed to have been pasted on the virtual surface, corresponding to a point of intersection between the virtual extension PL and the virtual surface B(i) is determined as a display color of the one pixel positioned in a direction extending from the one pixel to the viewpoint position.
