Are there any elements in your 360 ° panorama that interfere with viewings, such as logos, a tripod, a photographer (if it is not part of the panorama), a shadow or a reflection of a tripod or photographer in a panorama? If so, then this affects the quality of the panorama. Next, we consider examples of unsuccessful examples of extraneous elements in the panorama. By avoiding this you will improve your work!

Sometimes the photographer in the panorama looks completely natural and is an integral part of the panorama.

Large logos

The presence of the logo in the panorama also prevents the sense of presence, so if possible, do not add logos to the panorama.

Tripod Shadow

The shade of the tripod always looks unnatural on the 360-degree spherical panorama because it is the shadow of an object that is usually not visible in the panorama.

When creating a panorama, try to avoid the negative examples given here. Also consider this information when answering questions about the quality of panoramas on the TrueVirtualTrous site. Thanks!

    Maybe my question is not quite on this topic, but I would like to know whether it will be possible to post tours with transitions on the site or will it only be possible to add unrelated panoramas?

    Smart 360, thanks for asking. Yes, of course you can add virtual tours and not just individual panoramas. Moreover, individual panoramas can be used in different tours. Some information on project development plans can be found here . Thanks again for the question and for sharing your wonderful panoramas!

    SLM Okey, Thanks, this is a very good question. I will try to answer in the near future in a separate article.

    The latest version of Photoshop can work with spherical panoramas as with ordinary files, if there is no photoshop, i.e. Affinity Photo, which also can convert parts of spherical panoramas on the go and work with them as with ordinary photos. Another option is Pano2VR and its conversion panoramas in the edges of the cube and quiet work with any of the faces of the cube in Photoshop. This is short, and without affecting the topic of photographing a nadir separately and inserting it in PTGui through the veiw point correction function.

These criteria quibble as much as the user sees, because the tours / panoramas checked by these criteria claim to be included in the “Best” category, which means they have to undergo a rather strict quality check.

This article contains information about the rules for accessing 360° panoramas, articles, and other materials on the TrueVitrualTours website. Here you will also learn about the cost of posting panoramas on the site as well as the income that you can get by placing a 360 ° high-quality panorama

The TrueVirtualTours website allows you to place spherical 360 ° panoramas in an equidistant projection. We take seriously the quality of the panoramas, but at the same time, we allow everyone to upload panoramas, both photographers and professionals. One of our goals is to help novice photographers improve their work by following the best practices in panoramic photography.

There are so many different ways to create and stitch spherical panoramas. Some equipment or software does not allow to achieve high quality 360 panoramas. We want only the highest quality work available for general viewing.

If you did not find a good name for your panorama and did not add a meaningful description, this may prevent others from finding your panorama and viewing it, even if your panorama is of high quality. Consider the following tips.

Many novice photographers have probably seen interactive panoramas on the Internet where they can spin and see everything around them. Often such content is called 3d panoramas.

I think many people will be interested to see the list of equipment used by photographers when shooting their wonderful 360-degree panoramas. When deciding whether to purchase equipment for shooting panoramas, it will be useful for photographers to familiarize themselves also with the quality of works you can make with these 360 cameras.
