    Hello, Frank. Thank you for your question and for the great air panoramas you uploaded. Right now we have only Credit/Debit card option to pay for its services. We are using Stripe.com service to make payments and it should be safe and secure for customers. And you are right there should be more options to make payments. We will consider adding other payment options and do that as soon as we can.

    Hello, I have just discovered this site, signed up and am enthusiast about it. However, is a credit card really needed? Don't you offer Paypal or other payment gateways?

How to animate a panoramic photo

Some users to whom I sent links to view panoramic photos could not at first figure out how to properly rotate the panorama around me, or at first did not realize that the wheel could zoom in or out the scene.  For such cases, the True Virtual Tours website has a Video Editor feature. In case of its application, before the user who opened the panorama by the link, the script of the "flyby" invented by you immediately starts. That is, the camera rotates or focuses as you yourself previously configured. Thus, you helped our customer to quickly examine the space around "himself" in a panoramic picture and at the same time encouraged him to think that he could perform the same actions with the help of the mouse buttons or the wheel.
