Panorama – Acadia Dawn

October 6, 2016 Tips & Tech

I’ve been really impressed by Facebook’s new 360 image capabilities.  I love taking panoramas with my phone and sharing them with friends on Facebook.  One problem is that I’m having a hard time getting panoramas I created with my DSLR to show up as a live image on social media.

Being a geek, I searched GitHub for a javascript library that would enable this capability on my WordPress blog.  One of the many choices was a library called Paver.  It seemed to give a good experience on the desktop and promises to integrate with mobile devices so you can move the phone and get the images to move.  Plus I found that someone had developed a plugin for WordPress called easy-panorama that already implements it . Being a lazy geek, it’s time to give it a try.

Here’s a shot I took in Acadia National park at dawn from one of the many overlooks on Cadillac Mountain.

What do you think, did it work for you?

Oh, here’s what you’re seeing on this image – on the left side is the city of Bar Harbor with it’s fishing fleet still at anchor. In the distance, on the far right, you can see Schoodic Point, the northern part of Acadia National Park.

I had an awesome trip to Maine this summer, and I will be posting more about it all in the near future.
