Panorama files (formerly called QuickTime Virtual Reality (QTVR) files) are photographic panoramas that allow you to view an environment by panning 360° around a central point. These files cannot be downloaded or exported (i.e. to Powerpoint as part of a group, or to OIV). If you have saved a panorama file to an image group and download or export this group as a zip file, you will retrieve only the thumbnail image in your download/export. Similarly, if you select download from the detail page for one of these files, you will download a still, jpeg image file. Search for these files using phrase: virtual reality panoramas
To view a panorama file:
- Open the file on the detail page.
- The tools to pan around the image will be available when you hover over the image. The image will respond to your movements, allowing you to turn 360° within the displayed space.
- Launch the panorama in fullscreen mode using the launch fullscreen icon
