Hi Sam, do you still have a 50kb size limit for thumbnail images? we were forced to reduce the quality to fit in the 50kb restriction.
EDIT: Ahh! See that it’s 500kb. My bad. Was wondering.
Our inspiration for building WalkInto has been the outstanding custom work Google produced on Streetview. Such as
We believe Streetview can be an excellent story telling medium. These stories can be commercial or recreational. WalkInto want to be your platform of choice for such stories.
We know that this is a long road and in many cases futuristic. There has to be a market. We are strongly encouraged when leading brands are starting to use this medium for creating digital assets for marketing. Along this path there is going to be many opportunities of varying sizes. Currently we are at a level where we have a tool that adds tremendous value to See Inside for large properties.
Imagine a large resort deciding to do a Google Busines View covering 100 panos. This decision itself can never happen – if the decision maker does his or her research. The elephant in the room is that, without an overlay system like WalkInto, a Google Business View more than 10 panos is impossible to navigate with chevron arrows and clumsy elevator widget. But with WalkInto in the context such a decision makes absolute sense. Now imagine the ability to make that tour more powerful by adding near by attractions from Streetview. But there is no need to imagine since 100s of such tours exist today on WalkInto.
Or take the case of an 800 pano hospital shoot from downtown San Francisco. Can someone ever see the key areas of that property without a WalkInto?
Or take the case of enterprising photographers convincing Chambers of commerce from all parts of North America to create visual directories of their members as a WalkInto. Such as this one.
My point is that there are opportunities that are specific to local markets, your clientele and industries. What we have created is a well supported easy platform to enhance everything on Google Virtual tour platform. There are a lot of stories to tell.
Glad you asked, and glad you decided to join WalkInto.
We noticed that you have fixed the titles of our recent panorama posts. Now, there is a context here for our nomenclature and hope you can help us with an alternative that works. Since the WalkInto tours added here is not really createb by ‘WalkInto’ but by one of our users, we think it makes sense to add the attribution in the title. What would you recommend?
Thank you for taking care of it. Just added one. Worked great.
