How to upload 360 panoramas render to facebook?


Facebook recognizes and processes 360 photos by looking for camera-specific metadata found in photos taken using 360-ready cameras. This information is embedded in photo’s Exif (Exchangeable image file format) tags, and if you’re sharing 360 photos straight from camera, Facebook should automatically process and present them as interactive 360 photos. However, 360 panoramas rendering don’t have metadata information in it, Facebook might not be able to tell that your render image is a 360 panoramas rendering. In these cases, we have to inject the correct metadata into our 360 panoramas render before they can be shared as 360 photos.

So here is how to add metadata into your 360 panoramas render images before upload it to Facebook, First, right click on your 360 panoramas render image and select “properties“, select “Details” tab, scroll down until you find camera, add the red box highlighted “Camera Maker” and “Camera Model” Metadata as shown in the below images into you 360 panoramas render image ( select only one image from below), click “Apply” and then click “ok“. Now try upload your image to Facebook and see how it look like. (Only apply to Window 7)
