It would be enough for user to provide two standard, digital photos of the
same object with slight translation and (optionally) rotation. 

However, it's possible to prepare an anaglyph from a single photo (following
can be done by application) by making two copies of it, making some
translation to one of them and cropping the common part of original and
translated photo.
