There is something intriguing about panoramic photos.
I did my research and found some fabulous examples of panoramic photos from the turn of the 20th century! And I found out how these old photos were created…..ahhh the patience that must have taken!
You can spend hours browsing old photos at the Library of Congress American Memory Collection!Don’t blame me if you get hooked….and don’t do anything else for the rest of the day!
This photo shows my favorite city view of Minneapolis in 1912. The Stone Arch Bridge and the River are fun to see.
Here is a panoramic view of the San Francisco fire in 1906. Amazing!
No…..this isn’t a history lesson….it is a techy lesson!
I just discovered this fabulous new APP for my iPad…..and it only cost .99 cents!
available for iPad, iPhone and now Android….!
What fun to be able to create panoramic photos by just standing in one place and turning slowly….the APP fills in the photo until you have a complete 360 view.
This is one of the first photos I tried…..in this flat version of the photo you get a great idea of the “my work home”…..and why I am tired at the end of the day! Keeping this place organized is sometimes a daunting task!
On the iPad, the photo is interactive…..and this can be uploaded to the Occipital Site.
Once the photo is uploaded, you can share the interactive view by link or embedding it….
Here is the LINK
Here is the photo embedded!
I am going to keep practicing…hmmmmm….this APP seems to have some real possibilities for showing different projects…..I will keep you posted….
In the meantime…I am off to take some more 360 photos of “STUFF”.
Have a great day!
