A communications system is described in which a plurality of mobile phones are provided, each including means for generating a user interface for enabling users to identify points in images as feature points. All of the phones are then operable to utilise points identified by users to generate 3D models of individuals in the images. The 3D models are generated by associating stored average depth data for points corresponding to the co-ordinates of the feature points and further points whose position is identified relative to the co-ordinates of the feature points. The 3D models are then used to generate images which are displayed on the mobile phones.
