How to Make a 360° Panoramic Photo on Mac/Windows

360° panorama is a 360-degree field of view or representation of a physical space, with the viewer feeling like standing in center of the virtual place and looking all around, especially in photography.

When exposed in beautiful natural scenery, you are probably eager to capture the whole items and details in front of you. In normal circumstances ordinary digital cameras and smart phones are available at hand. They do not have the ability to catch 360 degree panoramic photos, though. Panorama Maker is an easy and fast solution to get 360° panoramas with your common cameras or mobile phones. ArcSoft also provides Panorama Maker Mac if you are using Mac OS.

Before that, shoot the scenes from different horizontal angles at your location (at least 6 photos), and make sure there is some overlap between the images so they can be stitched with no missing pieces. Here we provide you with detailed directions on how to make 360° panoramas on Windows for instance. If you want to make 360° panoramas on Mac, follow the same steps. Then all you need is to free download Panorama Maker:


Step 1Import photos into the program
