Kuula collections are very flexible and can be used for organizing your own posts or your favorite posts from others. Using collections you can also create and share virtual tours and 360 image galleries.
A virtual tour is composed of multiple images, that users can switch between using a thumbnail bar, like on the screenshot above.
Virtual tours are prefect to include in real estate listings, portfolios and on-line articles presenting 360 content. Creating a virtual tour or a gallery is easy using collections. Here's how to do it.
