5 easy steps to make the virtual tours shine on your website
Did you know that Kuula has an easy-to-use Embed Editor? Now you can even create embeds with your own logo and you can adjust the way the embeds look. This post is a quick tutorial how to create embeds and add 360 photos to your website, to an online magazine article or to a blog.
Let's Get Started
After you post a 360 photo to Kuula, you need to go to your profile page and click on the image you want to embed. Once the 360 image is open, select the Share button and choose Embed from the pop-up window that will open. And here you go, Kuula Embed Editor is there for you! Now you can start making the embed look the way you want.
Here're the 5 easy steps how to make your virtual tours look the way you want:
Step 1. Adjusting the Size.
You can adjust the size of the embed either in pixels or percent. You can make the embed bigger proportionally, or just adjust one of the dimensions. The preview on the left doesn't reflect the final size of the embeded content so make sure to test it on the website where it will be embeded.
Step 2. Adding or Removing Some Options.
In the Options you can adjust whether you want to have a full screen mode added to your embeded post and if you want to have zoom controls enabled. Simply put a tick mark if you want them to appear in your embeded post.
Step 3. Adjusting the Appearance.
In the Appearance you can modify the Margins, Transparency of UI elements and the Logo position.
Simply move the slider to see how the margins are getting smaller or bigger and adjust them the way you want.
Based on your preference you can balance the transparency of the UI elements. By moving the slider you can make them look more transparent or have them fully white.
There are three positions where you can have the logo placed. You can have it in the top left corner of the embed, bottom left or bottom right corner. Play with the options to achieve the desired result.
Step 4. Create embeds with your own logo.
If you are a PRO Account user you can also add a custom logo. Simply upload it from your computer and adjust its size by moving the slider. You can also hide credits and instructions by ticking off the box "hide credits and instructions".
It's worth to remember that you can only use one custom logo per account. If you change the logo to a different one, all your existing embeds that use this option will be updated.
Step 5. A final step once you are happy with the settings.
After you achieve the desired settings, select the code that is under the 360 image and copy/paste it into your HTML code.
