Setting Up Your 360 Degree Image
To begin, you’ll need to import your 360 images into Photoshop. To do this, open up Photoshop and go to File > Import > Image. Then select the file you want to import (you can find more information on how to get 360 images here).\
Once you’ve imported your image into Photoshop, it’s time to set up its dimensions and canvas size so that we can start editing! The first thing we need is an idea of what kind of resolution our final product will have; this will determine how large or small our final image needs to be when printed out as well as how much detail we can include in each frame if we’re going for something like animation or video editing later down the line.\
If you’re planning on printing at home with an inkjet printer such as an HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer (starting at $69), then 300dpi should be enough resolution for most uses–but if you’re looking for something higher quality like professional photo printing services from places like The UPS Store or Walgreens Photo Center (both starting around $10 per print), then consider increasing this number slightly towards 400dpi instead!
Basic Image Editing
Image editing is the most important path of professional photography. To get started, open the image in Photoshop. Then, make sure that you have the crop tool selected by clicking on it or pressing “C”.\
You can use this tool to crop out unwanted parts of your image and focus on what’s important. To do so, simply click on one of the corners of your rectangle and drag it inward until all that remains is what you want to keep within your frame.\
Once you’ve chosen an area for cropping, press enters or double-click inside your selection box (this will automatically fill in all four sides).
Advanced Image Editing
Once you have your 360 images, it’s time to start editing. You can use Photoshop to add special effects and create panoramas, as well as combine multiple images into one seamless scene.
Saving and Sharing Your Images
Once you’ve completed your edits, it’s time to save and share your image.
- Save in the right format. Make sure that you’re saving your image as a PSD or TIFF file so that all of the layers are preserved. This will allow you to go back and edit your 360 images later if necessary!
- Uploading to social media is easy with the Facebook app for desktop computers: simply drag and drop your saved file onto Facebook from within Photoshop (or any other photo editing program), then click “Upload.” You can also use other methods like Google Drive or Dropbox if needed!
Troubleshooting Common Issues
Image distortion. If you’re seeing distortion in your 360 images, it could be due to one of two things:
The first is that the camera was not properly calibrated with the lens and/or sensor when it was taken. This can lead to image warping or stretching when viewed through a VR headset like Oculus Go or Google Daydream View.
The second is that the image file itself has been improperly stitched together by either Photoshop or another program (like Lightroom). In this case, you’ll need to re-stitch the photo manually before editing it further in Photoshop.
