The Curation Story

You may have noticed that the Gigapan pano's shown on the front page of are curated by us. Several have asked what can improve the chances that panoramas make it into this selected set and the answer is easy: upload a great panorama, be sure to write some descriptive text about it, and take some snapshots inside it. Those are all key to getting your panorama curated to the front page. We have been curating sets of panoramas, anywhere from four to twenty at a time, and when you go to's home page you are shown one at random. I hope you enjoy the variation on the front page.
