Fill Nadir & Add Logo with 3 PhotoShop Actions


Polar Down Action

This action combines a few things. First and foremost the action makes sure that all images are scaled to 13,000 x 6,500 at 300dpi.  When creating actions its always good to bring in assets that are the same dimensions.  Next we flip the image 180° and then apply the polar down (Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates).

First Action: Polar Down

Now you have time to use the laso tool and fill with content aware. You might luck out and you might not with the results. If not then becoming an expert with the clone stamp tool is well needed.  Side note: try shooting photos where you have a good amount of same texture around the tripod.  Not always possible but good to keep in mind. Now that you have the nadir fill looking good it’s time for the next step.

Add Nadir Logo Action

To add or not to add, that is the question. If you don’t want a logo you can skip down to next step. I suggest using a png or gif with transparent background. When you start this action you will be prompted to locate your business logo. This will associate your logo to the next action and apply the logo into a new layer.  Next you will need to scale the logo to size.  If you are a Google Street View Photographer, make sure to keep logo at 10% or less.

Polar Up Action

The very last step is to apply the Polar Up Action which changes the perspective of panorama back to its original state.  The file within your asset folder is rewritten automatically as well.  FYI I always create a duplicate set of files whenever I produce. This way if something does go haywire you can continue without a large setback.   Feedback is always welcome and if you want the three actions to please click here.

    When you finish the manipulation with logo at your 360 panorama bottom side, please click «create» button under the numbers and image creation will start. Please be patience the converting takes some time, you will see running flower. If the process continue then server still works to create new bottom side for your 360 panorama, please do not close page.
