March 27, 2018: This post was originally published on February 17, 2018. The AppTip Sheet that I described here is no longer accurate. It refers to the website, http://360Facebook.com. It has been replaced by a new website, http://nadirpatcher.com. This new site performs a similar function as before, but also includes additional capabilities. I refer the readers to my later post.
I have a new format that I use to help me do certain tasks on my computer or other devices. I named this format AppTip Sheet. For example, these AppTip Sheets may be the steps involved to accomplish a particular Photoshop editing technique, or how to use a particular Photoshop tool. Or, they may deal with various steps I need to perform in flying my DJI Mavic Pro drone, or how to perform a particular calibration on it.
In general, I write these AppTip Sheets to document any thing that I do not do routinely enough to remember each and every step, but yet do them often enough that a quick cheat sheet helps me avoid pulling out the manual or other document to complete the task. The key is that I try to keep these AppTip Sheets as short as possible.
Occasionally, I may decide that a particular AppTip Sheet may be useful to others, and so I will post it here.
Right now, I am experimenting with using my Mavic Pro flight modes to take 360-degree Spherical panoramas for posting on social media. Once posted, you can use your mouse to zoom in on the subject and pan around throughout the entire scene. That is the subject of this post.
This particular AppTip Sheet deals with posting a spherical panorama on Facebook using 360Facebook.com from the browser on your PC. This is only one of the several ways to accomplish this, and I will explore others in the future. So click on the figure below to get a better idea of what these AppTip Sheets are like.
Until next time.
