How to add circular logo in panorama

Dear All,

For a client I made some panorama's on a tripod. One of his questions was to add a logo 'on the bottom' of the panorama to mask the tripod. Should this be done in the stitching proces?

I tried to add his 'circular logo' as an extra picture but when the stitching is done unfortunately there is no logo (just the pictures from the original tripod)

Image

How can this be done?

Thanks!

p.s. it's diffenent than a 'normal' logo in the panotour maker so I placed this in the Giga forum.

You could use krpanotools - or Pano2VR - to convert to cube faces, edit the cube face add the logo, and then convert back.

But why not do it in Panotour Pro?

mmm as far as I know logo's can only be placed in a corner? :/
I would like this to cover up the place of the tripod, and of course that customers see his logo. My Idea was to add it in the panorama before stitching.
If I place it as a hotspot the problem is it stays the same size, so if I zoom out it (the logo) covers too much of the orignal panorama.

You'd need to have a 360x180 pano image then you will see there is a Nadir patch feature enabled:

These photoshop plugins should solve your problem.
Super Cubic is a collection of Photoshop filters that help the retouching of spherical/equirectangular panoramas. The filters will turn the top and bottom (zenith and nadir) of your panorama into flat planes that are easily edited. You then turn the retouched parts back onto your panorama to complete the job.
