Adding a nadir cap (mirror ball)
I wrote a Photoshop action that produces these mirror spheres below out from
an equirectangular panorama. As you can see are three sizes available.
Small covers 5% ,Big 8% and XXL 12% of panorama height (equirectangular projection)
Below you can see the region that will be covered with the mirrorball.
Here the action set in Photoshop:
Download the Photoshop action here: Media:cap_text.atn
For a flexible nadir cap which can be streched to your needs: Media:CapFlex.atn
