Changing image order
Before aligning and linking the images within a new virtual tour, users may wish to review and/or modify the image order - this may be done by clicking the "Edit" button against the tour thumbnail and then clicking on the "Images" tab:
Users may then use the bottom section of the "Edit" page to reorder the images by dragging and dropping them into desired position:
Any changes in the order of the images will be automatically updated and saved.
Setting tour heading
Currently VR.World - Places does not utilise any orientation data against an image set, thus a user must manually set a common heading in each of the tour images. To do so, users should now click on the "Linking" button in the "Edit" section:
The tour will load, and will display the first image in the sequence:
Users should adjust the image to face the general position of the next image in sequence, select the "Heading" mode via the selector in the top left, and then click within the image to place the heading position marker:
Once set, a user may click the heading icon to delete it, or may click elsewhere within the image to place the heading in a new position. It is not possible to click and drag the heading icon to a different location.
Users should now browse to the next image in sequence and follow the same steps to set the heading - all images should have the heading set facing the same direction.
Users many now add hotspots to their images, these are embedded clickable links that lead a user to another image within the tour.
To add a hotspot, a user must first select "Hotspot" mode from the selector in the top left corner of the tour:
When in "Hotspot" mode, a user may simply click and drag a thumbnail image from the bottom bar to where they would like for it to appear in the current image. For example, in the example within this article, we wish for the tour to navigate from image #1 to image #4 which shows the turn around the corner:
