$360^{\circ}$panoramic image can give people an unprecedented visual experience, and there are many different ways to make a $360^{\circ}$panoramic image. In this paper, we will introduce two easy and effective methods from those many ways. The first one is through 48 photos to make a $360^{\circ}$panoramic image, the second way is through 6 photos to make a $360^{\circ}$panoramic image. We will compare those methods and tell the audience which one suits themselves. Through those easy design methods introduced above, we can see VR works design became easy and popular, normal people can also make $360^{\circ}$panoramic image, and it promotes the industry of VR image contents.
