My first 360 degree spherical panorama on Facebook! :D Adeuri (future world kiteboarding champion) and his better half get the prime slot on this one :D New to panoramas? ..read on.. I just tested this on my smartphone and it works just fine. For best results...I suggest touching only the center of the image.. that seems to let you scroll all the way around it without scrolling down your feed. Tap on it once and it should fill the screen. You can then scroll all the way around with ease. For the best results...use a laptop or desktop with a mouse. I've discovered that if you're viewing it on a laptop or desktop using a mouse...click on it once and then try pressing the full screen button at the top right..you can then zoom in and out using the scroll wheel :D All devices will behave slightly differently. I'm going to experiment with these to see just how big you can make them, here. This upload was done using a 4k version of the original (which is huge...over 9k)...I'll see just how big it can get after a few tries :)
