Tutorial: How to Create and Launch a Panoramic Image Ad

Panoramic images have a wider field of view than regular images. Because panoramic images encourage viewers to actively explore the ‘wider’ content, they are an attractive content medium for brands to better engage their customers.

Which is why we’re excited to provide you with a way to create and launch display ads across the web using panoramic images.

Within the ad itself, a user can move their phone to view the content in a magic window experience, just like 360° ads. This is what makes panoramic image ads extremely engaging and bring higher performance to brands.

We wrote a tutorial on how to get started:

1. Sign in or sign up for a free OmniVirt account

2. Select ‘Create Ad’ under Ad Manager in your dashboard

3. Select ‘Create Display Ad’

4. Upload your panoramic image

Click the orange upload box.

Click the top left orange upload box if you’re uploading a file from your computer. Or select any content you’ve previously uploaded to your account.
