Panorado JS 2.4
Free on private websites!
- Panoramas on HTML5 websites
What is Panorado JS?
Panorado JS enables you to design websites and web applications with
interactive panoramic pictures or other kinds of large pictures.
A picture tells more than a thousand words - this also applies to websites. And a
panoramic picture tells more than an "ordinary" picture.
Panoramic pictures can present locations in 3 dimensions - and thus
add attraction to your website.
Panoramic pictures can contribute to:
- Touristic websites: Hotels, apartments, touristic facilities
- Real estate websites
- Websites of museums, art galleries, and image archives
- Documentation of industrial sites
- Maps of all kinds
- Virtual tours, using the viewer's hotspot option
Maybe you have some ideas of your own?

Which system environment is required?
You certainly need a web browser for displaying HTML pages.
Panorado JS requires some HTML5 features which are supported by the current browsers.
But absolutely no plugins or add-ons: No Flash, no Java, no Silverlight!
Thus, it runs on all popular browsers and on all popular platforms!
We regularly perform compatibility tests on 13 different
Since HTML5 features are relatively new, canvas and touch implementations differ between browsers.
Generally, browsers on Windows 7+ and Android 5+ platforms are quite stable and fast.
Most browsers support hardware graphics with WebGL.
Panorado JS runs also without WebGL, although remarkably slower.
There are still significant differences in touch and device orientation handling on tablet and smartphone devices.
We expect further development in the near future.
You want to check out the viewer?
You need to perform these steps:
- Take pictures. You can use an ordinary digital camera, if you
take care of some details. Click here for more about it.
- Assemble single pictures to form a panoramic picture
There is special stitching software; see the details in the background
article. You'll find short descriptions of stitching tools and links to manufacturers on
the Links page.
- Write and test the HTML frame.
On the Tech page, you'll find two HTML code examples from
which you can copy-and-paste to your own HTML page.
With some HTML basics in mind, modify and extend the code according to your needs.
- Upload all components.
Copy the HTML document, the image file(s), and the Panorado JS script to your web server, test again. That's it!
The current build version is 184.108.40.206.
You want a panorama on your private website?
The use of this viewer is free on private (non-profit) websites!
The only "limitation" is a little Panorado logo displayed in the image's bottom-right corner.
You are considering a commercial application?
Using the Panorado JS script on commercial (non-private) websites
or publications requires a license agreement as soon as the pages containing the viewer are published.
This applies for example to corporations, shops, advertising, enterprises, organisations, schools, universities.
Viewers with registered license keys don't display a Panorado logo.
