Hi all, I took a 360 sphere photo with my mini 2 today, I can only see it as sphere in the DJI Fly app. On IPhone I see it as a normal photo. Is there as app that can transform it into sphere?

Thanks again

in order for the phone to recognize the photo as a 360 photo you need to edit the exif data of the picture to include projection mode = equirectangular. it is strange dji software doesn't do that... not sure if it is omission in the mini 2 firmware or it is like that for all 360 panos shot on dji fly and is an app issue.

Try GoPro VR Player 3.0 for 360 photos and videos on PC.
I was looking for so long for a software to view my 360 videos/photos from my Samsung Gear 360 until I try this.
It works great with 360 photos of mini 2 too.

How about Skypixels, the DJI image library?

This spere has been made with Mavic Mini and Dronelink application. The 23 images have been stiched  with Hugin. After that the top of the sphere had to be extended by another app (Snagit). I assume with Mavic Mini 2 it would be easier, you can upload the sphere directly, I think ...





(not sure how to embed pictures in this post)

Google Streetview is also able to show your spheres ...
Google Steet View 360

When taking a sphere pano sometimes the picture will not ne transmitted to my smartphone. I just have the single pictures on the sd-card in my Mini 2. Why are the pictures not on my smartphone (in the DJI fly app)? Is there a way to get them there?

I am not sure about M2 yet, but with MP I had to do most of the work myself. Unless I uploaded directly to Skypixel via the Go4 app.

I love that I can upload straight from DJI Fly to SkyPixels for the 360 shots.

360 Over Shell Beach - Maybe I don't have permission to create links yet

I wish the same thing happened when I upload to Facebook though.  So far everywhere I save the file it shows up square, except SkyPixel.

What is the process of getting my 360 shots from the card to something I can view or share via Street View app?  I really like the resolution and control there.

You can upload photosphere to Facebook but it is little bit tricky. And you have to use your computer.

E.g. my photospheres on facebook:
360 sphere on facebook #1
360 sphere on facebook #2

I can create tutorial if you want.

Yes a tutorial would be awesome.  So far, I've got PTGui to stitch the 360 pictures, but I'm not that impressed with the viewer functionality and it still outputs just a jpg.  It looks good and clear but the controls are funky.

Great picture. I think you just need to change the size to format 2:1 (without changing other image characteristics, just extending the upper part). After that you can upload it directly to SkyPixels (as 360 spere).
For uploading to facebook, some tricks are needed. I do not know exactly how, but  image characteristics need to be changed, so that image looks like been taken by another camaera. Facebook detects only some camera types as 360 camera. And only if 36 camera is detected, image will be shown as sphere ...

For Facebook you need ProjectionType="equirectangular" in the exif metadata (you can use ExifTool to change the metadata) and 2:1 image (width to be twice the height). No need to modify the camera make or any other exif information.

Awesome!  Thank you all for the assistance.  I was able to post this to Facebook and it shows up perfectly.  I'm still hoping to figure out the tiny planet thumbnail, but it's a work in progress.  This is progress.
edit - didn't show up here as a 360.  It did on facebook though.

the upper black part can be content-aware filled in photoshop with sky. it is a bit tricky at times, but its worth it for better looking 360 view.

WOW! Cool picture. I wish my phone would take such photos. The problem may be that I cannot photograph, LOL. No matter how much I try to take beautiful photos, I always get a daub. Therefore, my girlfriend and I order a photo session once a season. We usually go to https://www.wanderlustportraits.com/engagement-photographer-orlando/, which we have known for a long time. It is better to pay professionals for a photo than to suffer yourself. Beautiful photos in the future will be a great memory of our youth. Perhaps, someday I will learn how to take beautiful photos. But for now, I’d better turn to professionals.

Hello, if you have a small web server with php I have adapted some opensource software to share droonie and spheres.
If  so many are interested with your help of all of we can translate this, my level of English is poor.

The open source is here and a demo is available on github https://github.com/fran6t/ExhibMyDrone

Demo here https://d.wse.fr/ExhibMyDrone/ (5 spheres and 2 videos 1 droonie and 1 spire)
