You can also choose between two navigation modes:

  • Click and Drag (set by default)

  • QTVR mode

Play with both of them and then choose the one you prefer by selecting it from the menu. The mode you choose will be the default navigation mode next time you open a panorama. Of course, you can easily change your preference from this menu any time.

Panoramas on 360cities.net can now be seen in virtual reality (VR) on Google Cardboard, with support for other hardware headsets coming soon.

 

Here’s what you need to do in order to partake in the VR experience on 360cities.net:

  • Buy the Cardboard from Google or DIY
  • Get your Android or iPhone ready
  • Tap on the image – it will then go “fullscreen” and you’ll have 2 icons in top right corner – one is for gyro and one is for VR (eye)
  • Tap on the VR icon and activate the Gyro

 

  • The screen will be divided in two with the same image displayed side by side

We have recently updated points 8.a.2, 8.a.3, and 8.h of our Terms and Conditions for photographers.

8.a.2 has been updated to reflect the fact that we may display panoramas on subsidiary websites like 360gigapixels.com (if they meet the necessary requirements), and that image credits will be shown where possible and appropriate in cases when images are licensed.

8.a.3 has been update to reflect the fact that we now calculate royalties based on 40% of gross proceeds from sales of your images instead of 55% percent of revenue minus associated expenses. The change is designed to provide more visibility to contributing photographers.

8.h has been updated to reflect the fact that we may display panoramas on subsidiary websites like 360gigapixels.com (if they meet the necessary requirements).

 

We are looking for awesome gigapixel panoramas to add to our gigapixel gallery on our site 360gigapixels.com. We’ll be promoting this content, so you’ll get more views and potentially earn royalties if your gigapixel image is licensed by one of our corporate clients.

To be included in our gigapixel gallery, your gigapixel must meet the following criteria:

  1. 360 degrees – either cylindrical or spherical
  2. Minimum resolution 3 gigapixels
  3. Image is available for commercial licensing

If you’re interested, please go to http://www.360cities.net/contact, then choose “I want to have my gigapixel panorama included on 360gigapixels.com” and provide us a link to your gigapixel image for our review. If your image is accepted, we’ll provide you with further details and instructions on how to upload.
