Default VisualTour 5.3 Introduces PAN/ZOOM Effect

A free update is available for the VisualTour Studio software. A complete list of changes is displayed the first time the software is opened after installing the update (or at any time in the future by clicking HELP-Version History). To obtain the update, open the VisualTour Studio software, and click HELP - Check for Updates.

The main new feature is the PAN/ZOOM effect, which animates still photos (non-panoramics) by creating a slow zoom in or zoom out effect. A drop down list under each photo in the VisualTour Studio software (and online) allows users to choose to zoom in toward or out from of any corner, choosing the corner based on the concept of a map (NE for upper right, NW for upper left, SE for lower right, SW for lower right). A RANDOM option is also available and is the default setting so users do not have to set each photo individually.

For tours uploaded prior to updating, the pan/zoom effect is active as well and set to RANDOM. If you wish to disable it or change to specific pan/zoom settings, just follow these steps:
  1. Log into your account at

  2. From the My Account screen, click My Tours.

  3. Click the Photos button next to a tour.

  4. Click the first of your still photos.

  5. Use the drop down list next to Pan/Zoom Effect to choose the desired option (including NONE if you want no motion effect.

  6. Click Previous or Next in the upper right to save your selection and advance to another scene or choose Photos in the upper left to save your selection and return to the list of photos.
TIP: Changing all tours at one time. To change all tours at one time, log into your account and from the My Account screen, click Viewer Layout. The Global Settings at the bottom of the screen can be used to change all exsiting (not future) tours at one time. Just remember to click the little COPY icon to the right of whichever drop down setting you have changed.

We hope our users enjoy using this new feature to add more pizazz to their online tours.
