    Default Photosphere photos lost their "3D" ability

    Hi,

    I've decided to organize all the photos I've collected from my long trip, including all the photospheres.

    I copied them around in my PC, changed some of the colors, cut, paste, etc.

    At some point, the ones I messed around with have lost their 3D ability. Meaning, when I put them back into the phone, I can't "look" around when viewing them. Also they don't work in G+.

    This one has remained 3D:

    As you can see, the functioning image has tons of extra information in sections where the malfunctioning one is empty. Is there a way to restore it? And I can't see how it's lost in any process, except for changing a format or manually removing it.


    Thanks.

    Default Re: Photosphere photos lost their "3D" ability

    I have that problem sometimes if editing the image... losing that data.

    On the android device itself, you could download the app Photosphere XMP tagger. Call that from the gallery and it will create a duplicate of your image with the needed data.

    I also have got a trickier solution on PC, using EXIFTOOL command line: I can have a whole folder full of images, drop the folder on a batch file calling exiftool, and it will update all the images at once.... but its a little tougher to setup.
