Custom Hotspot Icons PRO

Kuula offers a number of built-in icons that can cover your basic Virtual Tour needs, but sometimes you'll need to use custom icons to meet your clients requirements or just for a more customized visual effect.

To use a custom icon for a hotspot, open the post in the editor and add a hotspot to your photo the same way you would add a regular one. Once the hotspot is in place, click on the Change image link next to the icon preview:

In the hotspot image dialog, you can now select the +Add new tab and upload an image.

For best effect, we recommend using PNG images for icons with well defined geometrical shapes so that they're easy to identify as buttons by the user. But of course you can use any graphic or picture you want!

Once the icon is uploaded, it will appear in the Your assets tab along all the icons you uploaded before.

All the icons you upload can be reused across different posts and tours, so there is no need to upload the same image twice.

After you select the icon you want to use, it will show up in the 360 photo. You can position it by drag and drop and use the tools on the right-hand side panel the same way you would use them for regular hotspots.
