Managing Branded Accounts - Google Street View

Managing Branded Accounts - Google Street View

With the shuttering of Google's Street View online publishing tools and the development by Pano2VR of an integrated publishing system there is now a simple efficient method to publish single and multiple node panoramic tours to Google Maps. 

This blog describes how to set up and activate Branded Accounts for use within Pano2VR's Google Street View functionality.

Note: This tutorial is only relevant if the Branded Account was created when setting a password was an option in the Branded Account management console. Recent changes to Branded Accounts don't have unique logins and can only be accessed by the users main login/password.

Using Droplets to create 360˚ panoramas for Facebook Timeline, Google+ & Twitter

Using Droplets to create 360˚ panoramas for Facebook Timeline, Google+ & Twitter

Making multi-resolution 360˚ panoramas for embedding in a Facebook timeline, Google+ or Twitter post is made easier using Pano2VR droplets. Simply drag your Equirectangular image onto the droplet and a few seconds later your files are ready to upload.

Note: Recent changes to Facebook have reduced the effectiveness of embedding into the timeline. In the past if Flash wasn't present a link to the HTML version was displayed. This is no longer the case and there is no fallback to HTML. The alternative now is an error message in the timeline or a blank screen once the button to play has been activated.

Modifying Droplet Paths

The path that the droplets use to locate the installed version of Pano2VR is determined when the droplet is made. If your application is in a different location and you are trying to run the droplets supplied with the Using Droplets to create 360˚ panoramas for Facebook Timeline, Google+ & Twitter blog then you will see an error message when you launch the droplet. This tutorial will show you how to modify the droplet path.
