From the map you can move straight to a different location, where you will be facing in the same direction as before. To look in a different direction use the left or right arrow.
- Sort out how you're going to capture the images, what resolution and compression settings and what image conversion software you're going to use before you start. Do a trial run to make sure you're happy with the results, so you don't have to change technique halfway through.
- Decide how many locations you're going to have and how many shots from each location you need before you start. If you have to take more pictures later you will probably find that lighting conditions have changed or objects moved (eg. it's snowed in the meantime, or cars are parked differently... can you spot all the places where I had to paste a car or something into an image taken later to make it look right?)
- For best results, pick a day when it's bright but slightly overcast, so you don't get any sharp shadows, and where the weather isn't about to change.
- Try to have a common point of reference between two images so the viewer doesn't get lost, eg. when panning right an object that is at the right edge of the first image might appear at the left hand edge of the next, or part of a landmark in the distance might appear at the edge of the foreground when you move forward.
- Every movement should have an inverse, eg. if you pan right to get to another view you should be able to pan left from there to get back to the first image.
- Use a consistent naming scheme for your image files, so you know what views are available at a particular location and can find the files.
- You don't have to use Hyperslider to place the links. It's good for seeing how the links work as you go along but you can achieve similar results by using a standard web imagemap preparation program. You could even do it all by hand, though it might be a bit tedious!
