I JUST UPLOADED MY VIRTUAL TOUR, AND I FOUND SOME ERRORS, HOW CAN I QUICKLY MAKE CORRECTIONS?
When you initially upload the virtual tour to our web server, you’re sending all of the multimedia files and details.  When that virtual tour already exists on the server, only things that have changed since the last upload are re-sent.  This makes simple changes and corrections fast and easy.
HOW MANY PICTURES ARE SUPPORTED?
We currently allow each virtual tour to include up to 25 photographs.  The ftpHomes program includes an image browser, making image selection easy.  You can take images from any drive and directory on your computer, including floppy disks and network shares.  ftpHomes copies the images into a folder created for each virtual tour, leaving the originals unchanged.
WHAT KINDS OF PICTURES ARE SUPPORTED?  PANORAMAS?  360’S?
Each of the 25 images you include in your virtual tour can be panoramic pictures, or even 360º.  Using stitching software such as Panorama Factory by Smoky City Designs, you can take a series of standard pictures, and “stitch” them together into a panoramic image.  The end result can be much higher quality than the “fisheye” or parabolic lens panoramas offered elsewhere.
HOW DO I CREATE 180º and 360º images?
There are many software packages available for combining images into panoramic images.  The process is called “stitching”, and can be used to create images with a wider point of view than possible with a normal camera, including a complete circle.  Panorama Factory can do this, and is available from Smoky City Designs (www.panoramafactory.com). Smoky City Design has a Shareware version, as well as a completely free “freeware” version available for download.
WHAT ABOUT FURTHER DEVELOPMENT- WHAT’S PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE?
We initially developed this system with help and advice from real estate agents, and continue to look to our customers for guidance.  We are dedicated to continually improving our products and services, and welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.
