This article will explain what pano branding (also known as a nadir) is and how to use it. Branding can be added to all the panos within an iGUIDE as an indicator of the company that shot the iGUIDE. This branding is overlaid on top of the visuals that would normally show the tripod holding the camera up.
Pano Branding can be set in 2 different ways:
For a Single iGUIDE
Find the iGUIDE on the Portal to add Pano Branding to. Under Operator Actions click the Pano Branding Image button.
From here select the image to be used as the branding image.
The Image should be circular and is recommended to be at least 1024x1024 pixels. Refer to figure 1.
If the image is not circular it will be stretched to be square, so always take a look at the preview and make sure it looks good.
Scroll down and click the blue Save button to save the changes.
This method will set the Pano Branding for just the current iGUIDE.
