The hottest trend right now is creating interactive 360 panoramas on Facebook. You might have seen them. On a mobile phone, you rotate you can spin around, look up, look down and see all around. Your smartphone becomes like a portal where you are looking into another world with a fully immersive view. It’s really cool and fun. The good news is, it’s really easy to make these! I have created a tutorial that shows you how right here! Enjoy it!
There are a few things that you need to do, in order for Facebook to recognize youruploads as a 360, if you don’t include these, it won’t work.
If you have stitched a pano shot from a non 360 camera, you need to edit the camera metadata to make it work. Photoshop. Lightroom and most editing apps won’t allow you to edit the EXIF data. In the video above I show you how to add the metadata using a free online website https://thexifer.net to edit the file. You simply add RICOH THETA S to the camera make and model.
I will be adding more info and tips to this page soon.
