Adding Photo to Google Earth
  

I know this may not be a good place to ask, but I am hoping it is.
I am trying to add photos to google earth (for street view). I believe I used panorima (or whatever its called) and it won't upload my pic. So I am trying directly to GE and it overlays pic--covering a portion of page or earth view. Is there someone who can give my some simple instructions and what I should look for in completing this process? Google has upgraded since I last did this and it is confusing since I don't know what to look for. Thank you.

question Re: Adding Photo to Google Earth

Thanks for your response. I followed directions, but it was an "overlay" not a street view--which was what I was trying to do. I thought there was something that asks where you want to place photo--didn't find it.

Re: Adding Photo to Google Earth

I think that you wont be able to create Street View even though in the 360Cities thing, you can add your own 360 degree panorama and eventually get it included into Google Earth. Street view photos cannot be considered as a best tool but in some places they are so low resolution and covered with distracting objects, they don't serve as building textures very well.
