Can. I works.
Upload them in your extranet - of course.
Now the question is, what are the best devices and methods for creating 360 photos.
I was using my android phone google maps street view app. I use a tripod for most of the images and have to take it off the tripod to make top and bottom shots where tripod is in the way. When done, the app stitches all the photos together imperfectly but at least the resolution and exposures are pretty high quality. Been using that method for many years.
Just bought a Xiaomi Mi Sphere Camera. One shot does it but need to get a smaller tripod as it shows up big at the bottom of the photo. Also it establishes focus on one area and applies it to all areas of the image so, if all objects are of similar distance to the lens only the region where the focus was established will be in focus - all other parts - usually 90% of the image is blurred and grainy. Same problem with lighting. So if you use it gotta take shots from the middle of the room not from the corner to get the best average focus. Still not nearly as good resolution, light and focus as the Android Google Street 360 app.
Good luck and let us know what you are doing that works. 360 photos are ever more important post COVID
Any solution to this problem yet?
TripAdvisor won't sync booking.com iCal automatically. Everytime I open my TripAdvisor calendar it says click here, here, here and here during which it manually sync all my booking.com iCal. Which of course means guests will instant double book whenever the tripAdvisor calendar gets out of sync between manual sync. Seems like the booking.com iCal format is goofy requiring manual sync in tripAdvisor ?
this appears to be a bug or foolish mistake in the application. you can "upload" but they are not displayed yet in listing. Kind of backwards way to roll out the feature.
poor execution. never add a feature until its ready. and if you implement half way - warn users. i too uploaded 360 photos and wasted 15 minutes trying to figure out where guest prospects can see them. they cant ! there is no warning saying you can upload now but we dont know when guests can view them !
