The exercise files contain a series of folders that I think will make it easier to separate out the stages of the workflow. There are folders A, B, C, and D. Folder D contains a copy of the final 360º (spherical panorama) photo, so you will have the final file to dissect and review.
The exercise files contain a series of folders that I think will make it easier to separate out the stages of the workflow folder A contains the original 3 photo that I shot at the lake. More retreat, as well as the top portion of another 3 60 photo taken on a different day when the sky was less cloudy. And before I move on, I'd like to thank the folks at the lake more retreat for providing me with written permission to use their logo for these videos. Now, the logo that I am providing in the exercise files, however, is a fictitious logo, not the Lake More retreat logo. So you can use this sample logo as you follow along. Or I would encourage you to use your own logo during the course to see how your logo looks displayed in his spherical panorama. And continuing through the files, folders B and C are empty will be adding files to them as we progress through the course. And finally, folder D contains a copy of the final spherical panorama. So once you have the required software install...
ed and a copy of the exercise files, let's continue on and start editing are spherical panorama.
In Lesson 8 I would highly recommend grouping the layers into a folder named "Components," then duplicate it and turn the duplicate into a smart layer. Then rename the smart layer "Composite," or something like that. Then turn off the group of layers leaving only the composite layer displayed. This way the files remains editable for future lawn/image cleaning. The way the instructor did it would delete all of the layers for potential future editing.
