Publishing Panoramas on 360Cities Via Email

Now you can upload panoramas to 360Cities simply using email. This complements the current web upload and ftp upload options. The email upload option is the best and the most convenient choice for uploading from mobile and tablet devices. Currently only jpeg files are supported. Panoramas are automatically published so please make sure your file includes GPS data!

Step 2: You will receive a confirmation link as a reply.
Step 3: After opening the confirmation link, your new 360Cities account will be created and the panorama will be automatically published. 
Step 4: You will then receive a link to your newly published panorama.

FAQ

I've forgotten my secret upload address when on the go. Is there a way to get it via email?
Yes! Simply send a blank email to upload@360cities.net and we will respond with your secret address. Alternatively you can find it in your account's email preferences.

I got "Email Upload Error - Message Not Sent To Secret Address" message. What does it mean?
You sent your panorama to upload@360cities.net or upload@upload.360cities.net and therefore your submission was not accepted. In order for your account to be protected from spam and abuse you must use your secret email address, which you can get in your account's email preferences.
