Keep in mind I am very limited, to say the least on web design. I want to learn how to add a 360 view of a room to a web site.
My photo editor will stich pictures but I wanted a bit more plus a view that turns automatic, or be able to change directions. I found this program to be what I am looking for but if any of you have a better idea let me know. It costs $50 Euro. http://www.ptgui.com/ The next step is how would I create a link on my site so people can view this room or any panaroma view. A short explanation would be nice if possible. Really what I need is ideas and a links for resources so I can learn. Thanks for your time.

:D

One last thought, I would like it to show on the screen at roughly 6"x 8". One thing I haven't done as yet is view the source of any sites that incorporate this feature, but it may not help me.

Just a couple of files you need and script
Half way down the page is a simple Pan (http://216.183.147.174/post/room/index4.htm)
It is a simple java applet

<applet code="pano.class" width=300 height=250>
<param name="file" value="libpan.ivr">
</applet>


You will need this file (216.183.147.174/post/room/pano.class)

and

this file (216.183.147.174/post/room/libpan.ivr)

if you hack around in the .ivr file you might be able to figure it out, cheaper then buying the program

Another way you can do it would be in a flash movie like this (http://www.bmts.com/~taunton/liv.html)

When I was trying to figure it out, i found the pano.class reference by viewing code, then searched in search engine for pano.class, found lots of open directories mostly from european sites and just raided what I wanted :)

Thanks Chris, I'll give it a try. I have the basic idea and I see what you mean by european sites. I was not able to check out the two files yet, I kept getting the can not find server. I'll try later or tommorrow. I'll prob screw something up but I have some time.
