Are there any elements in your 360 ° panorama that interfere with viewings, such as logos, a tripod, a photographer (if it is not part of the panorama), a shadow or a reflection of a tripod or photographer in a panorama? If so, then this affects the quality of the panorama. Next, we consider examples of unsuccessful examples of extraneous elements in the panorama. By avoiding this you will improve your work!

Sometimes the photographer in the panorama looks completely natural and is an integral part of the panorama.

Large logos

The presence of the logo in the panorama also prevents the sense of presence, so if possible, do not add logos to the panorama.

Tripod Shadow

The shade of the tripod always looks unnatural on the 360-degree spherical panorama because it is the shadow of an object that is usually not visible in the panorama.

    I was lucky with the choice of camera! Insta360 One X has incorporated all the best that is currently in the world in the consumer camera segment 360 degrees: high resolution photos and videos, compatibility with iPhone and Android, excellent stabilization and a lot of cool chips that make using the camera even more unforgettable , eg: • Invisible selfie stick - One X camera can be used with Insta360 Selfie Sticks (1.2m length) and 3m Selfie Sticks (3m length), which are automatically deleted from the panoramic photos and videos made thanks to a special algorithm, therefore, it seems that the shooting was conducted from the side of the flying around the drone. This is one of the most impressive camera options that impresses most users and guarantees a wow effect when publishing footage without much effort.

    The latest version of Photoshop can work with spherical panoramas as with ordinary files, if there is no photoshop, i.e. Affinity Photo, which also can convert parts of spherical panoramas on the go and work with them as with ordinary photos. Another option is Pano2VR and its conversion panoramas in the edges of the cube and quiet work with any of the faces of the cube in Photoshop. This is short, and without affecting the topic of photographing a nadir separately and inserting it in PTGui through the veiw point correction function.

    Smart 360, thanks for asking. Yes, of course you can add virtual tours and not just individual panoramas. Moreover, individual panoramas can be used in different tours. Some information on project development plans can be found here . Thanks again for the question and for sharing your wonderful panoramas!

    Maybe my question is not quite on this topic, but I would like to know whether it will be possible to post tours with transitions on the site or will it only be possible to add unrelated panoramas?
