2. Select Image from your phone’s photo folders (Some cameras will generate their own ‘Gallery’ folders, like ‘RICOH THETA’ or ‘Gear 360’).
3. At the “Select View” screen, select “Little Planet”
4. Use your touch screen to adjust the planet to the correct angle and ‘pinch/zoom’ to scale it to the size you want it to appear. Then tap ‘Next’
5. (As you would with ‘Instagram’, you can place a filter over the image or fine-tune it with ‘Image Correction’ (optional step)
6. Tap ‘Next’ again. Choose ‘Cropped Image’ and ‘Full Size’ for the resolution.
7. Hit ‘Next’ and use the final options to either save the tiny planet image to your phone or to share it on social media.
*The process is almost exactly the same for the Theta+ Video app. The only difference being an added option to ‘Add BGM’ (background music). Otherwise, simply select the video, set to “Little Planet”, make the necessary adjustments, save, and share!*
