2018.04 upload by desktop or smtph
add: text, tag words and links, share and embed
same as all other fbk posts 
can make albums

set start view

warning compresses data (image quality falls)






SeekBeak  free a/c    pricing

2018.08.22 free a/c Virtual tours limited to 3 snaps and 500mb a/c 
presume per tour - not yet tested

upside: free a/c includes hotspots, groups a/cs and sound per image 






Google   free   ios and android
2018.07 several different options 
google a/c and google street view

google a/c:  upoload desktop & smtph
text, tag words and link, share and embed
and make albums

or upload into google street view 

1. open a free google a/c

2. download free google app   google photos   (set it to auto backup your photos from phone to cloud)
within the google cloud you can access and edit the image using free google tools .. most of the features are the same as google snapseed photography app

3. download free google app street view
with this you can make / build a sphere within the app, import 360 spheres and upload to your profile then drop them into google map places, if accredited you can also join the images together to create a virtual tour

I dnt like 
can not add comments or url link or tag words










KUULA      - Free limited options

2018.06 lots of features - high end product, can see people would upgrade to pro

free a/c no limit but some restriction on features
pip/bubble of next photo, url links and more


Pro features: many - such as hotspots, replace image 









2018.06.10 Free and pro ac     Photos and Video - big zoom feature
desktop only mobile app to browse but not upload

many essential features 
Free a/c Photos: no limited on size or uploads, Videos limit to 60 secs
No Business images on free a/c - their help page shows examples, basically anything inside the biz will be blocked
option to earn money on pro a/c







2018.08.15 free app for their camera
their app will read camera roll ie., images from other devices so you can
many features to morph but no export only upload to their site 
app has tracking feature (only with files on their app b4 exported to camera roll). The tracking feature is awesome, google the topic for me 

dnt know if the site includes url in comment field or share or embed .. tba 

2018.08.21 ANNOYING   
1. their app can load from camera roll (3rd party pics) BUT WILL NOT output to local - must be cloud platform, unless the image is in the camera app via their device
2. No url on their cloud post, does include comments and tags

Theta and Ssamung will load 3rd images

 





Flickr 

apparently but not tested 









discovered July 2017 not tested 
free and pro
desktop upload, free section is limited to 2gb









free desktop upload 
2018.08 opened a basic a/c to test an upload it's html format 
does not feel dynamic, their focus is selling you desktop software for stitching an tours







Photoxy  free online 

2018.08.17 upload a 360 or convert an image into a 360 and host it on their page, download to facebook to get a link to the host
pretty basic but works






ThingLink

upload via desktop
mobile app does not edit manage 360 - 





other
some people use the virtual tour sites to host single 360  







My Wish list

storage / retrieving the images 

2018.08.15 
some use their own clouds such a dropbox or google but you have to add info to find such as tag words or dates 

it's nice to find an app that lets you download original quality  ie., when it is posted to one of these sites you know where it is and can find it and then how to download the original quality when needed? then you dnt have to double handle filing in your own cloud or backup system

if anyone knows of such pls advise 
what I know is in RoundMe Virtual tours you can download the original

additional comments for Video
2018.08.15 takes forever to upload from mobile so I use fast transfer device to desktop then upload and also upload to other sites at same time
fast file transfer apps listed in page 360 apps - utilities

checked in google a/c and the video auto shows in the backup as sphere / 360  with link to share or drop into an album 
don't see an embed link so you may need a widget, for google sites i show widgets 





Facebook 

free 2018.08.15
comments under photo section

Other


2018.08.16 found survey post 360 group about various Virtual tour sites

note: it is a closed group so you will not be able to see the detail unless you are accepted into the group

the post is a long list of VT sites 25 + and here's the top .. most popular which I will view if not already










ThingLink  Testing May 2018   https://www.thinglink.com/
Purpose: add hotspots to any type of image 
2018.06.24  accepts 360 images only if loaded via desktop (so use mobile app google and switch to desktop mode)

tricks: add hotspots, links, insert links, images 
interact 360's together (make a tour)


most recent working example









Pictogon   

https://pictogon.com/  not tried yet

2018.06. 26 quick glance 
not for 360 images
any image via a url link
add boundaries to hover and reveal info (map or menu) hotspots for links

examples on the website 







my wish list
share edit rights and charge a fee (share the fee with host site
I take many pics of places for tourism hobby, this would let me encourage a biz to consider hosting a VT with a few of my pics and more pics added on fee basis
the idea was shared to VeeR and RoundMe and both are keen to explore
  

Virtual tour pages

I create private shared pages with host app team for feedback / development

free to join, create galleries, upload images, set a price, email buyer, 2018.08.27 added event; add images and release url for buyers


others
pending, harvesting info - pls contribute 


how to find out how much your media is worth 
group post discusses the bench mark prices 360 users charge for single or multiple images typically in Virtual reality tours

we proposed an option to VT host to allow shared access with fee charge 
members can create a V.Tour and promote rights to biz vendor on fee basis to encourage purchase and more photos generated ..   
the 2 sites we contacted are very keen on the idea so we have started a pilot
