Another Android 4.3 bonus: better Photospheres
posted by Michael H. / Jul 25, 2013, 5:55 PM
Previously, it was quite awkward to get Photospheres right, there would be some jaggies or odd stitching, but the team behind the feature at Google have made some serious improvements. Evan Rapoport, a product manager at Google detailed the improvements on Google+, saying that the team has worked hard to improve alignment and stitching, so horizons are flatter and there are generally fewer errors throughout the image. Also, exposure correction has gotten a big boost to make the colors more even.
We certainly can't wait to test it out (it's grey and rainy outside right now), but until then, here's a Photosphere that Rapoport shared.

I just figured it out, I have a Galaxy Nexus, so I am able to use the photospere mode way before, so on JB 4.2 actually there were 2 circles in the upper and botton part of the picture, now, on 4.3 version google has adjusted this part so there is no more hole in the pic.

It's a bummer that the Galaxy S series doesn't have Photo-Sphere even though it should...
