You can make a virtual tour using your Smartphone, iPhone as well as Android, using the following steps:
To start, you need the Google Street View App.
Optionally you can download the My360 App to upload your images straight from your phone to the software
Follow these steps to shoot your images:
Open the Google Street View App
Click on the camera (create) icon
Select “Take Photo Sphere”
Point the camera to the orange dot and what until it has taken it’s first image
Repeat pointing your camera until all the orange dots are gone and a green checkbox appears in the bottom of your screen
Click on the green checkmark and wait for the processor to finish
Once finished, click on the image (Android, click on profile, then on the image)
Click on the “upload / share” icon
Select “share privately”
Click on “save image” (iPhone) Or save to Google Drive (Android)
ADDITIONAL STEP FOR ANDROID USERS:
- Go to your Google Drive Folder
- Click on the image
- Click on the 3 dots & select “download”
Now you can see the image in your camera roll
You can now upload the images to your My360 account using the My360 app or send the images to your desktop.
I use Airdrop to send my images to the desktop. Then from there you can upload them to your account.
However, you can also upload them straight to your account from your phone, so continue these steps if that is what you want to do.
Open the My360 App & sign in to your account
Create a new tour profile or click on an existing one
Click + Spheres
Click to select your images
Click “from gallery”
Choose the image(s)
Click “upload” and wait for the images to finish uploading (don’t close the app!)
Wait for all your images to have processed before closing the app.
Now your images will be in your account and if you sign in to your desktop version of the software you will find the images there. You can then proceed to make your virtual tour using the desktop version of the software.
here’s a step by step guide on how to create a virtual tour with your new images.
