Random Tip 3/3
I’m gonna start a new tradition on 3/3 where I give you three random tips. This tradition will go swimmingly until NEXT 3/3 when I will forget all about it. First up…
How do you insert 360 metadata into a Photo
I’ve been using my Panono to make 360 photos. It works great, and when I download from the Panono site, it’s ready to upload to FB and it will recognize it as a 360 file. However, you may see in this Photo of the Baths that I went into Photoshop and erased myself. That deleted all the 360 data. So how to get it back in? My man Stu and I looked into it and here’s how you do it.
There are a few ways to inject 360 information into an image which has lost it during post processing. More technical people can use ExifTool, a command line tool. There is also http://thexifer.net/ an online service which allows you to upload an image and edit the data. By far the easiest though is a local application such as Exif Pilot ( http://www.colorpilot.com/exif.html ). Simply open Exif Pilot, navigate to/select your image and then click “Edit EXIF/ITPC.”
Click the PhotoSphere tab and set the “panorama projection type” to “Equirectangular”. Click “ok”.
Tip 3 is in Passport Section
I added a video for Passport Members but I can give you the skinny here… Tip 3 is all about Google Fi my new Mobile Phone service! Note it’s not a paid placement and I pay full price for everything… but I love it!

Daily Photo – The Gardens of Bangalore
This was my first time in Bangalore, India. What a cool city… I took my family to their first Bollywood movie and then we walked through the gardens and danced around a grapefruit tree just like in the movie! Not long after this, we boarded a train for a week to explore the countryside. What an adventure!
My 2nd hot tip is if you're in a Crazy Big City with chaos all around and you find it photographically overwhelming, find some parks. All the green and nature will calm you down… and give you a chance for some more relaxed photography.
