PanoPress allows easy embedding of 360° Panoramas & Virtual Tours created with KRPano, Panotour, Pano2VR & others using Flash & HTML5
First, you must shoot and stitch a panorama, you will need a decent camera capable of manual exposure control, manual focus, and manual white balance setting, a solid tripod and a proper panoramic tripod head like from Nodal Ninja, and probably a good fisheye lens although fisheye is not required but it makes things easier - see the links below for tutorials on how to create a 360 degree panorama and more information on panoramic photography
After shooting your panorama, you will need to stitch it together using a stitching application like PTGui, AutoPano, or Hugin and then you must use another application such as KRPano, Pano2VR, Kolor Panotour or Panotour Pro, Flash Panorama Player & Flashificator, Saladoplayer or similar to create interactive 360° VR Panoramas with Flash or HTML5 for web display and use with PanoPress
Use the shortcode as below, accepted file types are .swf, .xml, .mov (qtvr) & .html .htm, .php, etc as well as php queries like .php?=xx and similar file extensions will also work
Preview images may be .jpg or .png
Width & height are in pixels by default, or can optionally be specified as px, %, em, or other standard CSS units Examples: 800px, 100%, 2.5em, etc, you may mix values like width="100%" height="400px" Note that % width or height will be % of the parent css element, not nessisarily the entire page
File paths in shortcode are either relative to your panorama upload folder as set in panopress settings, or you may use absolute urls
'[pano file="path-from-upload-folder/my-pano/my-pano.swf"]' '[pano file="my-pano/my-pano.xml" preview="my-pano/my-pano.jpg"]' '[pano file="my-pano/my-pano.html" preview="my-pano/my-pano.jpg" panobox="on"]' '[pano file="my-pano/my-pano.html" preview="my-pano/my-pano.jpg" width="100%" height="500px"]' '[pano file="http://www.EXAMPLE.com/my-pano/my-pano.html"]'
