Capturing 360 pictures is possible in many ways. The differences include price, image quality and time + complexity to capture.
- [RECOMMENDED FOR INDIVIDUALS] With a smartphone, if possible with tripod and using apps: Cheapest way, Good quality but long time to capture
- With a standard camera, using panorama software: Expensive, Great quality but also high complexity
- [RECOMMENDED FOR PROFESSIONALS] With a 360 camera, easiest and fastest way, good quality, correct prices
There are plenty of 360 cameras in the market right now. We personally recommend using the ricoh theta V if you seak a high quality camera under 400€, or the panono if you want ultimate quality.
Yes! We still recommand using a tripod for best results but it’s entirely possible to capture 360 pictures with nothing else than your smartphone.
We personally used the Google Street View App for getting the best results. You can see a video tutorial on the How It Works page.
It really depends on your use and how much you want to spend. You get good results without spending a dime using only a smartphone, but if you want best quality and time economy, you’re gonna want to buy a tripod and maybe a 360 camera.
You can get a good tripod under 50€ and a good camera under 400€.
The app was made for everyone. No coding knowledge or special skill needed. We have videos explaining every step of setting up your virtual tour so you shouldn’t be lost.
Building your virtual tour is quicker than ever with home-viewer.
Imagine you’re building a virtual tour of a 10 rooms house, here is the time you’ll spend:
- Capture pictures: less than 5 minutes with a 360 camera, less than 15 minutes with a smartphone
- Create your tour online: less than 10 minutes
- Export your tour to your website: 1 minute
With a 360 camera, you can get your tour done in a few minutes
The app takes standard 360 pictures in jpg, jpeg and png format.
One example of 360 picture:
Although virtual tours can be viewed on many supports (Desktop, Tablet, Mobile, VR Headset), our editor app is currently only available on a desktop via our web-app on app.home-viewer.com
By default, we offer three export ways:
- Simple Link: redirects to full screen virtual tour
- Embed link: enables a virtual tour inside a website
- QR Code: printable code, redirects to full screen virtual tour
Yes, it is as simple as a youtube video. Just copy and paste the embed code on your export panel into your website where you want it to display.
If the website allows you, you can directly integrate the visit into the website with the embed code. If you don’t have this access, the most simple way is to share the link in the export options. Your clients will be redirected to a full screen virtual tour of your place.
We believe everyone should be able to make their own virtual tours easily. That is why we made the basic membership free.
If you need more than the basic membership (need to make more virtual tours, add your logo, customize more settings…), you can subscribe to the pro membership. We also offer a variety of add-ons to upgrade your membership and add more tours.
As we offer a variety of subscriptions add-ons, we wanted to keep things simple by making every subscription a monthly fee renewed on the 1st of each month. For example, if you buy a standard subscription on the 14th of june and an add-on on the 18th, the next payment for both subscriptions will be on the 1st of July.
As the system works this way, the first payment takes into account only the time left between the day of subscription and the 1st of next month.
