Issues with uploading Pilot One 360 photos to Facebook

I am trying to upload some 360’s to Facebook using a new Pilot Era camera.

The problem is the images are uploading as ‘normal photos’ not 360 images.

What’s the workflow to get a spherical image out to Facebook?

I’ve got into the One app , downloaded to local gallery, then save to album. Which gets it to my iphones photos app.

Facebook doesn’t see it as 360 though.

I suspect it’s because of the [XMP] Projection Type tag.

Read the section ‘There are two sets of metadata tags Facebook looks for to determine whether a photo is in 360:’

You must ensure the projectiontype=equirectangular in image metadata.

I explain a bit more here: https://www.trekview.org/blog/2020/metadata-exif-xmp-360-photo-files/?fbclid=IwAR2f-OTivNcuZbMWSzB82R0kFumrJw-zWq7JT-1NGIM3tHCqHP6uR1r06g0
