You can now share 360 photos on microblogging service Tumblr, thanks to Kuula.co!
Until now, sharing 360 photos on microblogging site Tumblr had not been possible. However, you can now share fully interactive 360 photos on Tumblr through Kuula.
Kuula is a popular website for sharing 360 photos and artwork for free (though some features require a paid account). They recently added a feature to create an embed code that works with Tumblr. When the embed code is used on Tumblr, your post becomes a fully interactive 360 photo where you can look around, complete with a button to maximize the display, and it all happens transparently within Tumblr. Here is a sample from Kuula’s new Tumblr blog.
To use the feature, you simply upload your photo to Kuula, and select embed the way you normally would but under Code Style, choose “Tumblr” instead of “Full”:
In Tumblr, you select “add video” (not add photo) and in the space for the html, you paste the embed code from Kuula. Here is a more detailed tutorial.
I’m glad Kuula added this innovative feature. I hope the 360 photos that will be shared on Tumblr will increase awareness of 360 cameras and their possibilities among at least some of Tumblr’s 500 million monthly visitors! This new feature also gives you another way to share your 360 photos and reach a new audience.
Here is Kuula’s official announcement for the new feature. Thank you very much to Tony Anastasi for bringing this to my attention!
