Licensing Your Panoramas
Offering Your Panoramas for Licensing

Making your panoramas available for licensing by default means that you have more opportunities to earn money from your images. You can make your images available for licensing both via 360Cities’ own licensing channel AND our distribution partner Getty Images’ worldwide network by simply enabling the following settings in your account:

Step 1: Go to your account dashboard and click on account settings.

Step 2: Select "Licensing" tab.

Step 3: To make your images available for licensing via 360Cities’ channel and our distribution partner Getty Images, click ‘Yes’ for both options and then ‘Save my choice’.

TIP: One important issue that we would like you to pay attention to is that any graphics (name, logo, or other attribution) inside your images and videos dramatically decrease the chances that they will be selected for licensing by 360Cities’ and Getty’s customers. So please avoid putting your name and logo inside your content if you would like to see Getty or 360Cities license it successfully.
