360cities is the preferred publishing platform for thousands of panorama photographers from around the world. Our contributors have published hundreds of thousands of stunning, geo-referenced, interactive panoramic photos from all around the world. 360Cities offers panorama photographers a unique proposition:
At 360Cities, we put the photographer first. All 360Cities members receive a customizable profile page where they can write about themselves and their work. Photographers always receive attribution for their panoramas both on 360Cities properties and on those of our platform partners. Outstanding photographers earn recognition via our EXPERT badge and a select few can earn our MAESTRO badge. We celebrate the work of our contributors via our Featured Panorama of the Week and monthly Featured Photographers.
There is no commitment and no monthly charge for the basic account. You can keep your basic account as long as we have it. We can’t promise 1000 years, but we’ll do our best.
Login on your account and visit this page, the Plan Page, and click on "Don’t renew". Your account won't be renewed. Then, you can wait until it simply expires. You will not be charged again.
You can start with any compact digital camera or camera phone. After you sign up, we will teach you which equipment to get and how to make your panoramas faster, easier, and better. We have tutorials, videos and forums to help you improve or learn the professional tricks to make awesome panoramas.
You can do both. Additional benefits from publishing on 360Cities are: exposure to our huge global audience; seeing your images on our well-designed platform; appearance in Google Earth; the ability to use our platform when you are selling your local photography services; view your images on iPad and iPhones, etc. We are a perfect solution if you don't feel like spending so much time on the publishing side of panoramic photography, and would like to spend more time taking photos. An easy way to begin is to 1) publish your panoramas on 360Cities and then 2) embed these into your own website. You'll also get some free high-performance hosting of your panoramas that way, which is a considerably good deal.
You can select whether to pay via PayPal or with your credit card.
Your account will be automatically extended after one year, so you don’t have to worry about your business panoramas or sets being unpublished or your PRO embedded panos being downgraded or losing portfolio view mode. You can cancel the extend automatically option at any time during the term of your membership.
We've got a serious technology running on our distributed server infrastructure. Our publishing system completely automates the process of adding panoramas to the 360Cities map. All you have to do is upload stitched panoramas. Our system does everything else like processing the image for tiled display in our flash viewer, locating it properly on the map, etc. At the same time, you have many different controls and settings that you can choose to tweak if you want.
Millions of people visit 360cities.net to view panoramas! And all our panorama image pages are indexed as search results in Google and other search engines. So, the better your image Title, Tags, and Description, the more people will find it. Features for our members include a special author page for each individual photographer. Your author page will show all your exclusive content globally - in other words, it's your own personal portfolio page on 360Cities.
