Get 360° photographs
For creating a virtual tour you will need 360° pictures (also known as photospheres – these terms are used interchangeably). You can start by using sample pictures to learn how to use Evryplace or you can use pictures of your own to create a first virtual tour ready for your business or personal use. If you want to use stock photospheres you can find them here: link.
If you want to use your own 360° pictures:
|Order a 360° camera||Commision a professional 360°||You already own a 360°camera or you want to use your smartphone|
|1. Go to www.ricohtheta.com|
2. Add a model of your choice to your shopping cart
3. Finish your order using the instructions given to you on the Ricoh Theta website.
You can order or lease any 360° camera of your choice. We recommend Ricoh Theta because it provides very good quality and is compatible with Evryplace mobile app, which makes creating virtual tours easier and faster.
Owning a camera is the most profitable in the long term as it means lowest costs, good quality and you do not have to rely on the work schedules of a professional photographer
|It’s a good solution due to:|
Best 360° photographs quality – most professionals include post processing of the pictures as well.
Does not require you to invest in hardware in aby way.
It is overall a good solution for beginning or in case you really want your virtual tours to be high end.
|If you want to use your smartphone to create 360° photographs you will need an app for it. We recommend the Google StreetView app, but there are other apps on Google Store and App Store, which might suit your needs better.|
It is worth mentioning Insta360 cameras, which use .insp data format. 360° pictures in that format need to be uploaded to Insta360 software and exported as .jpg or .png format. More information on this can be found here.
Read our Knowledgebase
When you have both Evryplace account and access to 360° photographs you can create your first virtual tour right away. The Evryplace Editor is simple and intuitive, but we recommend familiarizing yourself with our learning materials. You can do this in three ways:
|Watch the video tutorial||Read the Knowledgebase||Schedule a Training|
|It covers all the functions of Evryplace and contains complete information on how to create a virtual tour. It can be used instead of Knowledgebase – it covers the same information (just in different form and with different level of detail).||We especially recommend the Editor section – it contains more detailed information that the video tutorial.||If you are a customer using a Premium subscription – contact us to set up a date for an online training session for one person or a group.|
After watching the video tutorial, reading the Knowledgebase or attending training you will be able to create your own virtual tours.
