You might want to try roundme.com . You build your virtual world online, connecting each panorama using “portal icons”. You can also embed pictures, audio, video. etc. using info icons, more popularly known as hotspots. No virtual world software is needed, or need to convert it to flash or html5.
Thanks for the quick feedback. I actually found a simpler way to do it in Photoshop after googling nadir, logo and panorama. You can even save out the modified logo to attach it to future panoramas. Again, thanks for the feedback The directions are as follows:
INSERTING A LOGO AND THE BOTTOM (NADIR) OF A SPHERICAL PANORAMA IN PHOTOSHOP
1. Load your logo into Photoshop.
2. Under the Image Menu, Select Image Rotation / 180 degrees. This will allow your logo to appear face up on your panorama.
3. Under THE Filter Menu select Distort / polar coordinates
4. On Polar Coordinates Window, select Polar to Rectangle option at the bottom. Click OK
5. Under Image Menu, Select Image Rotation / Flip Canvas Vertical.
6. Under Image Menu, Select Image Rotation / Flip Canvas Horizontal.
7. Use the Select All command (Ctrl a) to select the whole logo.
8. Use the Copy command (Ctrl c) to copy the logo to the clip board.
9. Load the desired panorama picture into Photoshop.
10. Use the Paste command (Ctrl p) to paste the logo to the panorama’s center.
11. Use the Transform command (Ctrl t) to stretch the logo in the following manner:
a. Using the handler gadget on the left border of the logo, stretch the logo all the way to the left.
b. Using the handler gadget on the right border of the logo, stretch the logo all the way to the right.
c. Using the handler gadget on the bottom border, pull the bottom of the logo down to the bottom of the panorama.
d. Using the handler gadget on the top border, pull the top of the logo down to the bottom of the panorama. The height of the logo at the bottom of the window will determine the diameter of the logo in panoramic view.
12. Save the picture out in the format of your choosing (.jpg, .tiff, etc.)
13. Load the picture into a panoramic viewer or another means of viewing it in panoramic mode.
14. Scroll to the bottom/ nadir of the panorama to view your logo.
Thanks Luc. I am using PTGui and Autopano Giga. I scrounged around the menus and could not find where you insert something at the bottom of the panorama.
