DroneBase Wants Every Drone Pilot to Invest in their Passion Today

As a drone pilot, you’ve developed a skill that not only satisfies your own personal interest in aviation and technology, but that is also extremely marketable.

But not every drone enthusiast is in it to make money. In fact, for the best pilots and aerial photographers, monetizing their skill was a happy accident, an unintended, yet positive byproduct of what was initially just a genuine interest and hobby.

Now there’s another technology being used to set listings apart and draw attention to a property’s unique characteristics: drones.

The real magic happens when you combine the power of virtual reality with aerial photography to create virtual tours from above.

3D VR images – now supported by Kuula

3D VR images are now supported by Kuula. 360 spherical images are cool when viewed in a Virtual Reality headset. But what is even cooler are 3D images!

Kuula 3D VR Images

With 3D VR images you can not only look around you but also get a feeling of depth. There’s nothing like it for a feeling of true immersion.

The best way to create a 3D VR image is to use one of the cameras that supports it – like Insta360 PRO or Detu Max. Otherwise, most 3D rendering software can render in stereo and you can also make 3D game screenshots using NVIDIA Ansel.

Kuula now supports 3D images. Just upload them just as you would any other 360 images, put on your VR headset and enjoy!

This feature is available to all users – PRO and free. Here’s a tutorial with more information about this function.

How to post unlisted 360 photos and share them privately

Sharing 360 photos doesn’t have to be public. You can upload 360 photos to Kuula and keep them unlisted. Only people with a direct link will be able to view your Unlisted posts.

If you need to share your 360 photos privately with clients, co-workers or family, Kuula is there for you and will help you stay private. All you need to do is to sign-up for a PRO account.

Once you’re a PRO user, you will be able to upload, view, and share your 360 images — privately. Simply upload a 360 photo and choose UNLISTED, instead of allowing your 360 photo to be public.

If you want to share it, go to the individual Unlisted post page on Kuula and copy the link from the browser address bar. Once the link is copied you can send a link via email, IM, or in a text message on your phone. People will receive the link that will take them to a page where they can view your 360 photo privately.

If you want to share more than one private photo at a time, you’ll need to create an Unlisted Collection. Then, send a link to it the same way as you do with an individual 360 photo. If you would like to learn more about Unlisted Collections, read our tutorial.

360 Batch Upload – new PRO feature on Kuula

360 Batch upload on Kuula

360 Batch Upload on Kuula is very simple to use, but has some powerful functions. Watch this short (40 sec) tutorial to see how it works:
