CREATE A 360 degree IMAGE AND STICH IT TOGETHER
I will be looking for at least 12 to 15 images that you will stitch together the directions are pretty simple. Concept is to stand in one spot and take successive photographs that overlap at least 30% going around the spot you choose to take your pictures. Then open them up in Photoshop and create a new image that connects all the images seamlessly. Sounds a lot easier than it is to do, so have at it. So get out and take some shots but first read the article.

Start Tour Duluth Skyline Drive travels the entire length of Duluth high above Lake Superior and Saint Louis Bay. This tour may take a minute to load, be patient, it will be worth it.

You first take enough shots to get a full 360 of the room/setting you are in. use a flat level surface to ensure your pictures will later line up. then you place one picture in Photoshop, and copy it's size however many times you need to fit all of your pictures. then drag each picture and place it next to the one it lines up with. you may have to cut some out from each picture to make it all fit. once all your photos are lined up, you should have a 360 degree panoramic view of the area you were in. you can also do this process top to bottom instead of side to side. if you want, you can line each photo up more than once to make a pattern.
also, try not to get the floor or ceiling as that makes it difficult to stitch things together. instead try to get just the walls, or if your doing a vertical photo, get only 2 walls and the floor and ceiling, avoiding the other walls as much as possible.


What you will do
Value
1
Start by taking 12 to 15 images that you will stitch together the directions are pretty simple.
  • Images should be same size when you are done editing them (keep file size small under 5 mg each)
  • when shooting images should overlap 30% to get good mapping for the stitching process.
  • Images taken during class time will not receive the same weight as a a student that takes images outside of class time and spends time editing images, rather that taking the images the day before the deadline.

  5. Clean up image by cropping and clean up missing parts using rubber stamp tool(alt Click)
Process For creating world view
  1. Invert image by clicking Image -> image rotation flip 180
  2. Re size image so the both sides of the image are the smallest length (make sure to un click constrain proportions)
  3. Go to filter-> distort->Polar coordinates -> select square to polar
