Remember, the most important thing is to have fun when uploading your first experimental panoramas. Don't worry about quality too much, or anything else, just get started!

First create your 360Cities account. Then follow our detailed web publishing instructions. It will take a few minutes to process the image. In the meantime, you can go to Panoramas-Pending in the header menu to see the panoramas being processed or to Panoramas-Unpublished to see the list of panoramas that have already been processed.
Note: You need to wait till your pano is processed before you can publish it. Panoramas uploaded via email are published automatically after they are processed.
This is a great way to start using 360Cities from a mobile device.
Please follow this email format:
This must be your account's registered address on 360Cities
Title of the panorama
1 stitched panorama per email, JPEG only. Your email provider might have a maximum attachment size. Please make sure your file contains GPS data. If it does not you will need to go to your account and fix it manually.
Your secret upload address or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are creating a new 360Cities account.
Description of the panorama ending with @@@. This tells us that the description is a meaningful text and not just garbage or your email signature. Everything before @@@ will be considered as a description.
You can even set tags by adding another @@@ characters. Now everything between the first set and the second set of @@@ characters will be treated as a coma-separated list of tags. See example email below.
Here is an example:
Write the description here.
tag1, tag2, tag3, tag4
your email signature (will be ignored)
You can use any FTP program (we strongly recommend Filezilla) to send your files to the 360Cities server.
To see the status of your uploaded files, check the "uploader.log" file in your FTP directory. For each file you upload, it tells you what the server did with it and why. After your files are uploaded successfully, they will be deleted from the FTP directory.
