Is there any special thing one has to do to show 360° 3D photos, like ?Google spheres?

Edited by: gvmelle on 17-Oct-2017 17:41

I noticed that on line 125 of the index.html an url was incomplete: no https:

after adding that I got this message: render: unable to load ... see picture 2)

The (google) script needs access to your photos on the server. You can add permission through a .htaccess file, but in the meantime I made a new version (1.4.1) which includes the script, so no special permissions needed.

Just for your information: the commandbutton on your Tiger skin page sends one to the "Others skins" forum (https://jalbum.net/forum/forum.jspa?forumID=11) and not to the Tiger skin forum (https://jalbum.net/forum/forum.jspa?forumID=82) see "Region capture 1.png"

That's the reason my first post on this thread ended there and had to be moved by gromit.

I managed to get a google sphere photo in a test album with your Tiger skin, but the result can be improved. (See "vr photo.png")

The photo seems maximal zoom-in and there is no way to zoom out. Also it doesn't fit within the margins. Could you add something to change attributes or does one have to change them in the e.g. the index.htt or similar template file?

Sorry, I don't know why I can't edit the button's link, but the skin authors can't do it for some reason. The wrong link has left from the first days of the skin, when it had no separate forum yet.

What's the resolution of the file? Should be at least 4096x2048 (2:1 aspect ratio, power of 2 size). David is still working on the VR360 support in jAlbum, but once that's ready, jAlbum will automatically generate the best size. So far add the VR images in 4096x2048px size, set image dimensions to 2048x1024, and don't forget to include the originals (right-click -> Include original). Other than that the skin is using google's vr-view plugin, and the skin can only do what the plugin allows.

That's one for Anders - he can fix it quickly. When I made major changes to the forum sections a while back, we had to fix a bunch of them. Later, when I created the Tiger section, I forgot to tell Anders about the link from the skin page.

I myself use the iframe solution in my website:

example: <iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen src="https://my-domain.com/vrview-master/index.html?image=https://my-domain.com/images/ANHD7535.jpg"></iframe>
testimage

indeed no way to zoom in and out, just navigate with mouse or finger.

I have read the google vr page so I make my 360° google spheres dimensions factor 2 ( 8192 x 4094)

also the viewer form Jérémy Heleine is very good: http://jeremyheleine.me/#photo-sphere-viewer. I use that also. There you can zoom in and out.
