I asked about this awhile ago and found thus text

Thanks for the comments. The mirror ball is really easy to create in Photoshop. I will explain using keyboard strokes as I do it that way and only takes a few seconds. I avoid using the mouse.

1. open the pano in photoshop

2. CTRL J (to copy image)

3. press M (to select the rectangular marquee tool)

4. drag the 'marching ants' from top of image down to where the tripod legs appear. Do not allow any part of the tripod within the selection.

5. CTRL T

6. drag the top edge of the transform box right down to the bottom of the image to cover the tripod.

7. the next steps are down to what you prefer, ie flatten the image or save as layers etc, but whatever you do, the two layers need to be combined.

My normal workflow is to create the mirror ball last and before I resize and convert to JPEG. I dont flatten the TIFF with the mirror ball layer as it leaves me options if required and it only takes a few seconds to create anyway.



Hope you understand my instructions.

A while back someone in this forum discribed this procedure and suggested a website ... I think it was pixelator.

How to create the Mirror Ball w/ Photoshop

Page 9 , but the flip book was very informative


Here is the original post you should check this out especially the "Ship Tour" and the use of buttons so cool

This can be done in Gimp using the folowing:

1. open the pano in gimp
2. make a copy of the Layer
3. Use the selection tool to make the selection of the image to copy down
4. use the "scale Tool" Ctrl + T drag the 'marching ants' from top of image down to where the tripod legs appear. Do not allow any part of the tripod within the selection.

5. this is where it got muddy to me because I don't use Gimp....
6. drag the top edge of the transform box right down to the bottom of the image to cover the tripod. (this in Gimp didn't work the same as Photoshop)

But in essence what should happen is you grab the "top - middle" of the image and drag it straight down and it (in Photoshop... covers the bottom part of the image with the reversed top"

It didn't do this in Gimp (Maybe we have a Gimp Power User that knows how to do this)

7. the next steps are down to what you prefer, ie flatten the image or save as layers etc, but whatever you do, the two layers need to be combined.

Save the image under a different name (as to not replace your original)

You're welcome Lee.
I do have to say that I'm not the creator of that one, I once downloaded it somewhere myself and have no idea where.

Creating an action is very simple btw, just hit the 'record' button, do the actions you want to automate in photoshop, hit the stop button, and you're done.

The little planet is a different feature than that of this "mirror ball" but very cool feature none the less. Not sure you would cap the nadir with a little planet image? 
Will the little planet feature have ability to be used with tourweaver, when clicked zoom into tour from little planet, like krpano?

Thanks,
