"3D landscapes Good heavens!"

Reviewed by / Jun 08, 2011

This app makes interactive landscapes from a series of photos.

Photaf Pro can be an original app nowadays, but we're sure that apps like this will be commonplace in a near future.
So, until it'll be the order of the day, it's compulsory to read the Help file because it isn't easy to create the 3D panoramas. It's something that can't be improvised. You have to plan well what you want to do. So much planning can be a bit dissuasive and results can be somewhat disappointing. This means that you should be prepared to spend some time to master this app.

To have a rough idea, let's say that a 3D landscape is made from 9 to 12 photos. Take the first one and move the phone towards the arrow displayed on screen until you hear a beep sound. Once all photos are taken, you have to wait a little until your device processes the whole image. Make sure to stay still and that there aren't moving objects around.

When you achieve something worthy, you can save or share it at your whim. Photaf Pro has all options unlocked ,but we should recommend to check the free version out first and try to undertake one or two projects and control the settings before making the jump to the paid version.

Oren Bengigi was a developer specialized in, let's say, casual apps (see the unquestionably original "Force Close") until he launched Photaf 3D Panorama, which has been a pleasant surprise.

Reviews:

● "Wonderful 360 Panoramic Photos Make Your Phone Special - Editor Picked by AppEggs.com"

● "This is the best app for creating panoramic photos on an Android device - Wired.com"

● "Whether you’re going on holiday, selling your house or just trigger happy, this is a must have app for your Android device - ephotozine.com"

Please read the troubleshooting section bellow as it may help with common problems.

Common issues and troubleshooting:

● The settings screen does not response to touch on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Please update you device OS to version 3.2 or latest. It should resolve this issue.

● Cannot take the next picture \ Sensor inaccurately follows movement

This is a compass calibration problem, go to Photaf picture taking mode and before taking the first picture, wave your phone in a figure 8 pattern to reset the magnetometer in your device.

● Cannot create file, make sure to use a valid file name

Usually, this is a file creation error, due to SD card either not available, full or corrupted.
This error can also popup when the specified name already exists.

Try the following:
- Use a different unique name
- Make sure the SD card is not mounted to your PC via USB
- Make sure you have enough space on your SD card
- Move some unused files from your SD to your computer, sometimes too many files on the SD can cause problems too
- Reboot your device

● Colors on the Motorola defy are wrong

Use the defy hack option, under settings. Then, restitch your panorama.
