How To Add A Preview Image To Your Virtual Tour – WPVR

If you’ve turned off the autoload option for your virtual tour, a netted placeholder with a Click to Load Panorama option will appear on the page where you’ve published a tour.

Here is how it looks like:

You can set a preview image or a cover image on this virtual tour.

Suppose you created a virtual tour of your property, then you can set a flat image of the entrance of that property as the preview image.

You can also use your company banner as the preview image.

With WPVR, you can set a preview image on your virtual tour easily with only a few steps.

So, let’s see how can you set a preview image on virtual tours.
