We understand there are other tour providers available but please consider the following before choosing the right one.
HDR processing can also give a more realistic and natural contrast to some images. Unless it’s impractical to do so we always shoot with HDR methods.
We use high quality Canon DSLR equipment and Sigma lenses.
Images are taken in RAW format - reducing the number of times compression is used on the image (JPG for example) and keeps the images perfect until the final compression for delivery. RAW also gives us more control over the image quality, colour and sharpness.
We take time to remove the tripod from the image - when you look down, what do you see? Some tour companies mask the tripod with a logo, generic image or a plain circle.
Each image is a full 360° x 180° – this means the viewer can look fully up and down, as well as around. There should be no limitation to the area to be viewed..
Our tours are interactive – the viewer should be able to navigate through a tour easily. In addition, our tours can be viewed on tablets and most modern mobile devices and controlled via touch/swipe.
Our client requested if we returned to the area could we re-photograph the front of the property as the grass next door was not green, and there were cars parked on the road. Adrian was able to repair the grass in photoshop as well as removing the cars from the image within hours, without requiring an additional visit to the property.
We take care in stitching the images together. Many tour providers accept the software defaults, resulting in poor joins between the photographs. There are times when this is unavoidable, but 98% of the time, visible joins indicates a lack of care by the person using the software. If the software can't join the images correctly, for whatever reason, then there's no reason why a good image program can't be used for the final corrections. If you see joins in other providers tours, ask yourself how much they care about your business as well as theirs?
We can incorporate your logo and remove ours if required for a nominal fee.
We also provide a video filming and editing service for your website. Incorporating video on your website is widely thought to be a great benefit to improving web search rankings too.
If you choose to host your tour with us, we won't charge you a hosting fee. Our hosting plan comes with unlimited storage and the annual cost is so low, we feel it is unfair to charge for a service that doesn't cost us anything! (Please note - does not apply to video hosting).
