All of the embedded panorama codes, both need to be updated in order for the fullscreen mode to work as before. It’s quite simple to change the code as it’s just an exercise in copy-and-paste.

  • The embed code that you have now looks like this one:

<iframe src=” width=”910″ height=”460″ frameborder=”0″ bgcolor=”#000000  ” target=”_blank”></iframe>

  • In order to get the fullscreen mode back, you need to update the code as well as allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen. The embed code will look like this:

<iframe src=”” width=”910″ height=”460″ frameborder=”0″ bgcolor=”#000000″ target=”_blank”allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen>

  • You can either:
  1. Manually copy and paste this sequence on all your embedded panos: allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen
  2. Copy and paste the new embed code from your panorama from your 360Cities panorama page which  already has the sequence.

And, if you are a PRO member and using the PRO embed, your beautiful embedded panorama will look like this one:

Apologies for the complication but it couldn’t be avoided.

We are pleased to announce our new PRO embed feature that is specifically designed for use on commercial websites. PRO embedded panoramas don’t show thumbnails or arrows pointing towards any other panorama and they don’t contain advertisements.

It’s easy to share your PRO embed code with your customers. Just go to your published panoramas, click Edit in the panorama you want the PRO code for. Then go to the “Other” tab, and scroll down to find your PRO embed code.

Then, just copy the PRO embed code and send it to your client.

Note that now all embedded panoramas will be displayed properly in any iOs device, whether or not if they are embedded with a PRO or a FREE code.

Jan Dolk is the first photographer to publish a free tour offered last week to 360 Cities PRO account holders.

The “Cala Mayor and Surroundings Virtual Tour” is taken in Mallorca and contains 10 panos including a couple of hotels and the smallest beach in Mallorca. Check it out. Jan, where are you going to embed the tour so we can add a link to the website? :)

Who is going to be the next PRO account? We want to blog about your tours!

Here’s our newest update on upcoming PRO accounts. If you are currently using 360 Cities for showing business panoramas or if you are planning to do that in the future, this should help you to synchronize your plans with ours. If you don’t want to pay or if you don’t see value in PRO accounts for you, don’t worry. We will always have a free account for you, so you can skip this article completely.

PRO Account Features

Business Pano Publishing

When you pay for a pro account, you can publish your business panos to 360 Cities. There is no additional fee for publishing individual images.

Business Pano Embedding

The benefit of embedding a panorama is that we have a proven system of publishing a panorama that works in all major browsers, is super-fast and is reliable. When you view a pano, it only downloads data it needs need for your current camera orientation and zoom which saves viewer’s bandwidth. The owner of the website can insert the pano easily like a youtube video with no special technical skills and more importantly – quickly.

The roadmap (features we are working on):

Better statistics: Pro accounts will have far better control on where their panorama images are embedded, viewed. We’ll offer a good per-domain stats.

More to be announced soon…


360 Cities PRO account will costs 179 EUR / year (that’s about 15 EUR a month).

We’ll have online payments when we officially launch the PRO accounts. Until then however, you can sign up immediately to get access to the new embedding pricing or to support 360 Cities team. Please use the PRO upgrade form to sign up. We’ll send you a PayPal payment order or wire transfer instructions and an invoice if you sign up. For all early adopters we guarantee that the PRO account will expire 12 months from when we officially launch them (not 12 months from the day of the payment).

360 Cities founder and CEO Jeffrey Martin gave a talk at the Tucson 2010 Panoramic Photography Conference on April 15th and unveiled our new and improved offer to the professional panoramic photographer community: 360 Cities PRO accounts.

We will still have free accounts and we’ll keep the ability to publish an unlimited number of panoramas on and on our Google Earth layer (if approved). 360 Cities PRO accounts will be a new addition. PRO accounts are designed for panorama photographers who not only want to publish their general panos, but also want to use 360 Cities as part of their paid work for customers.

The launch date will be announced in the near future. When we launch it we’ll have two kinds of accounts:

  • Free accounts for sharing panoramas with the world, putting them on the 360 Cities map and (if approved) also on Google Earth. Free accounts let you publish any general pano that’s cool or interesting or simply important to you or your friends.
  • PRO accounts have all the functionality of free accounts with the added ability to publish commercial / business panoramas i.e., of hotels, shops, restaurants, etc.

To sign up for a free account, go to the 360 Cities homepage and click Sign Up or Join.

PRO Accounts: Publish All Your “Business” Panoramas

360 Cities PRO accounts give you the right to publish an unlimited number of “business” panoramas on What is a business panorama? It’s an image of, for example, a restaurant, hotel room, shop, museum, club, bar, etc., that clearly promotes the business it shows. (But a pano of you and your friends having a party in a bar or restaurant probably wouldn’t be considered a business pano.) We will publish a more detailed definition soon. If you’re a free account holder and you upload a business pano, it will remain in your unpublished queue. If you decide to purchase a PRO Account later, your unpublished business panos can then be published.  IMPORTANT: The new definition applies only for panos published after we launch the PRO accounts product — commercial / business panos that have been published before now will remain free.

EXAMPLE BUSINESS PANO: Spa – Hacienda El Carmen in Mexico


As a PRO account member, you’ll be able to embed your business panos  into your clients’ websites for a small fee for each embed (prices coming soon). The embedding price will cover one year instead of three years and will be lower than our current price. It will still be possible to embed non-business 360 Cities panoramas in non-commercial websites for free.


Is my panorama a business panorama?

If the main or obvious purpose of the pano is to promote a business, yes. We’ll provide a more detailed definition with examples soon.


When are you going to launch PRO Accounts?

In June 2010 (stay tuned for updates).


I’m currently using 360 Cities to show my portfolio. Do I need to purchase a PRO account?

No. You only need to go PRO when you want to publish “business” panoramas.


What’s the price of a PRO Account?

We’ll reveal the pricing soon, but the cost of a PRO account plus the cost of embedding in a website will be lower than we currently charge for embedding (in some cases much lower). In fact, we think you’ll like the change a lot. If you are really interested in getting started with a PRO account even before we officially launch, contact us to find out more.
