Iv’e just created a 360 Pano using “panoweaver” the out put file
says “to add this to your site” just copy and paste the following.
Okay, your code does the following:
It puts an image (called “_Market Pano.jpg”) into the layout
It creates a link that opens a new window with the “Market Pano.html” file.
First, how to do this the Freeway way:
The whole img src thing you can forget; just make a graphic on the
page in Freeway in the normal manner.
Then select it and choose Item > Actions > Link to New Window. In
the Actions palette, pick your Panoweaver HTML file (which I
recommend renaming to remove the space character) and set your
preferred size options.
Then how to achieve what you actually want, relatively simply:
Use the iFrame action (see http://www.actionsforge.com/ if you don’t
have this) to make an iFrame object in your layout.
Set this up to show the Panoweaver-generated HTML file.
Personally, I prefer using PTGui Pro to stitch, and PTGUI Pro,
Pano2VR, KRPano or Flash Panorama Player to deliver interactive
content. Panoweaver is a reasonable tool, but I need more than it
And, for example, with Pano2VR, I can produce a single self-contained
swf (Flash) panorama file that I can simply drag and drop onto a
Thanx for the advice. I went with your option using the iFrame “thanx for the link” it works a treat, and just what I was after!
I will also check out the other software you suggested as I am new to this style of photography. I love the shots you have done in the Glastonbury link you sent me “fantastic”! I also had a look at your website, you have so very impressive shots on there “love the shot over Turkey”

Fun, isn’t it?
If you are within reach of Lisbon in early June there’s a large
panorama conference going on: http://www.palmela2011.com/. I’ll be
helping run the tutorials and giving a talk on creating digital iPad
magazines with embedded interactive panoramas - more fun!

Is that why you have been too busy to visit us?
Insanely busy, sorry.
I’m a year leader in the BA Magazine Publishing course at university
and I’m still very much involved with MacUser. Plus the panorama
stuff, and writing projects. I’m sitting here looking at the tail end
of marking a pile of Magazine Futures reports, I’m anticipating the
Design & Production project marking next week, and I’m preparing for
a big publishing industry conference set up by my MA students.
I still love Freeway though! I used it yesterday to create the
preferences pages for a Chrome browser plugin, a few days ago to
update my panorama site, and I taught it to Interactive Design
students all through this last term. (As a favour, off-timetable.
Must call that favour in sometime…)
