AT2012 Panorama Photos describes how to stitch photos into panoramic views. The resulting photos may have more pixels than your computer monitor, so today we show how a web viewer may allow you to scroll and zoom within the panorama. For each of these panoramas, view by clicking the full-screen control and click-drag to move around and use the mouse scroll-wheel to zoom in and out.
This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels – round and around, and back home again, to a place where we know we are loved.
