What is a static image vs a 360 panorama image?
Panoramas are wide, still, images that can be panned and zoomed in any direction by your tour users. A static image cannot be viewed in all directions like a 360° panorama image, it is a normal picture.
When to use a static image vs a 360 panorama?
When you do not have the capability to take a panorama image, you can take a normal picture on your phone or with a camera. Or if the building or area is not built yet, showing a static image of the project is a good in-between until you can take a 360 panorama.
