Stitching Errors

What are stitching errors?

When taking multiple photos and merging them together into an immersive 360 photosphere – the images may almost match up, but not perfectly. Sometimes you can spot slight differences where you can spot where two different images meet.

They can be hard to spot, and most people will never notice it unless they are pointed out.

Most 360 photographers won’t talk about stitching errors and hope a client never notices. However I prefer transparency and realistic expectations.

I shoot 360 with two different methods

“Medium Quality” is faster shooting, less zoom, and nearly no stitching errors.

“High Quality” is slower shooting, more zoom, and more risk of stitching errors.

This sort of error will only occur for “Higher Quality” which has more zoom, and more chance for errors because of the shooting style.
