Can You View Galleries of Panoramic Photos Online?

GigaPan.com, AirPano.com, EasyPano.com, and PanoramicImages.com host panoramic photos online. They also host photos in an interactive format, which allows users to pan and zoom in and zoom out of a panorama by clicking and dragging the mouse.

A panoramic photo is an image taken of a subject — particularly of a landscape or cityscape — in 360 degrees. Before the advent of digital technology, panoramic photographs were created by taking pictures of the subject using a rotating camera. Although effective, such cameras were heavy, cumbersome and out of reach of the general public. With digital technology, this format can easily be created by taking a picture using any camera that has a panoramic mode or by taking a series of photos and combining them in a special type of image editor known as "stitching" software.
