How to export a 360° panorama from Photoshop (including metadata)

If you export a 360° image from Photoshop, other apps might not recognize it as a 360° panorama. This is because, by default, Photoshop strips the relevant metadata from exported images.

In order to keep the image being recognized as a 360° panorama, its EXIF metadata must be preserved.

To export the image while keeping the metadata, use the Save for Web option:

  1. File -> Export -> Save for Web (Legacy) File -> Export -> Save for Web (Legacy)
  2. In Metadata, select All Select All under Metadata
  3. Click Save and save it as JPG

Now, the exported image will include the metadata needed to be recognized as a 360° panorama.
