360 degree photography process using Photoshop and Sirv.com tutorial
This video is a fast method of producing a 360 image spinning on the web in under 3 minutes. It uses Adobe Photoshop and www.sirv.com. The photos were shot using a Crayfish 55 from seabass360.com
The Crayfish turntables are designed to work with every DSLR camera and all computers. We deliberately designed them not to need a computer or software. You are now able to use your favourite capture software, PC or Mac and upgrade your camera at anytime knowing it will always work with the Crayfish. We use Adobe Photoshop and Sirv.com to create our 360’s. This is one of many ways you can produce an interactive image, and we will document how easy it is, and why Photoshop and Sirv are far superior to any specialized 360 software out there. Disclaimer – we are not affiliated with any products we recommend, we have been producing 360s for 15 years, and the solutions we suggest offer the best value for money, they are fastest – and produce the best results. You will need:

We think this is the best choice for batching images for 360. Photoshop is much faster than 360 software, and it can do so much more. The tools for retouching out blemishes and enhancing your photos are far superior to anything else on the market. The video and instructions below will show the simple steps for producing a 360 image.

Sirv revolutionized 360 spins for the web. It is now possible to upload a set of photos, wait a few seconds for a link, copy and paste this anywhere on your website, and you will have an interactive 360 image with zooming. In the past, websites would need a lot of re-coding and designing to integrate 360’s. Now, you can be up and running and testing your new interactive images within minutes. Sirv works on all the major browsers, phones and tablets, iPhone and Android. What we really like is how it is constantly being updated and improved in the background. For example, if iPhone releases a new software update, the team at Sirv are immediately on top of it checking everything keeps spinning. Sirv is hosted on very fast servers, and the 360s are delivered intelligently, ensuring loading times are reduced to a minimum. A great use of Sirv which we discovered later when using it with our clients, was the ability for different departments to log in and download a single frame from the 360 for a publication. The organisation and structure saves us hours each day.
