p.1 #1 · How to achieve a "wrapped" 360 degree landscape photo?


Hello all,

Does anyone know how to create a "wrapped" or "virtual" 360 degree landscape photo? When house hunting some homes had virtual 360 degree tours but I'd like to do this for a landscape. Would CS4 or CS5 stitch a spherical panorama or whatever its called? Or, is this created in another type of software (what?)....

It seems the final image must be viewed in a special "viewer" too? Maybe I'm wrong.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Google virtual 360 software and it should give you what you. I know Apple has one and I believe it's free. They aren't hard to do.
PTIGui and Photomatrix are a couple of good ones if you don't mind paying a little.

You can stitch a 360 in Photoshop, but it's not the right tool for the job. PTGui or AutoPano Pro are purpose built software for stitching. Both have free trials.

You'll also need a pano head and a fisheye lens. Here's a "how to" guide that covers the basics of the equipment and software: http://www.panoguide.com/howto/

You can get away with shooting without a panohead outdoors with very careful technique. That being said, a panohead makes stitching easier and is a must for interiors. And a fisheye isn't mandatory, but allows you to take a 360 in anywhere between 2-8 shots. A rectilinear lens can do a 360 with more resolution, but it requires more shots.

And you can use Hugin instead of PTGui or AutoPano, but it's slower and not as easy to use.

I've been shooting 360s for 6 years now, and I'm always happy to help fellow pano enthusiasts.

Here's a six panorama night tour of an abandoned cement plant: http://www.joereifer.com/words/2013/04/27/360-night-tour-of-an-abandoned-cement-plant/
