Uploading Still Pictures

You can upload up to 4 still pictures per Hotspot (HS) - please see Size and Dimension(s) below for more details. Note: Ensure your images are saved as JPEG files


The pictures you upload should be no larger than 2 Mg's. YouVR™ automatically reduces the size as it is being uploaded. However, the smaller you reduce your picture(s) the less time required for you to upload. The ideal size to upload would be approximately 400 KB.


The minimum dimensions required for your pictures must be 400(Width) X 300 (Height) pixels. YouVR™ automatically reduces the picture to fit in the Picture frame cropping some of the image – if you do not want your picture automatically cropped you should crop the picture yourself to the required size above.

Uploading 180° or 360° Panoramic Images

You can upload both 180° or 360° panoramic images. Note: Ensure your images are saved as JPEG files


Panoramic images need to be saved as 300 pixel (Height) so that they do ‘swim' around when a user is viewing them. If they are saved less than 300 pixels (height) you will not be able to upload them.
