While product photos allow buyers to get an overall idea of the product and its quality, and videos give an idea of what it is like to really use the product, 360 product photography gives a thorough detailed look at your product from all angles, which let's the buyers see the product in its entirety.
What is a 360 Spin Photo?
In simple terms 360 product photos are a series of photos taken by placing a product on a spinning table and setting-up a camera on a tripod at the desired distance. The spinning table is then rotated in controlled steps of 5-15 degrees until the whole 360 spin is complete.
After this process is complete, the resulting photos are retouched to leave only a pure white background. The resulting files (or frames) can then be used to create a 360 degree gif, a 360 video, or they can be uploaded into 360 spin interactive software where the image can be manual rotated by the used, normally you see this on shopping websites like Amazon.
Example of 360 Spin Gif?
The main benefit of using a 360 Spin gif is that they are easy to upload on your website.They work just like any standard image - upload it, insert it and you are good to go. If you are looking for the least hassle free way to offer 360 views of your product to buyers, 360 gifs are a good solution. The drawback is that the files are quite large and the motion is perpetual, so the viewer can't pause the rotation. Additionally, there may be some variation in speed, some browsers may show the gif faster than you would like, while others show it slower than you would like.

Example of 360 Video?
A 360 Video is a good alternative to an interactive 360 product image. Through video you can communicate the message of the spin, and allow for some interaction (the viewer can pause and go back and forth). A 360 Video is also a good choice for Amazon Sellers because you can upload it on Amazon just like a regular video, and 360 images have become very popular among buyers as most major sellers offer them in their listings.

Our team creates 360 spin images for Amazon. If you are an Amazon seller looking to create 360 spins for the first time, please tell this to the consultant who responds to your inquiry. Not all sellers currently have access to uploading 360 spins to the interactive software on Amazon, only Vendors have access to this feature. If you are an Amazon Seller, we will create a 360 spin video for Amazon.
What is 360 Degree Product Photo Axis?
To spin the image, we need to know which axis to spin. It is possible to spin multiple axis, and the resulting interactive spin will be possible to spin in different directions by the user online in the UI.
The spins will be delivered to you as a zip folder containing all the frames and a gif file that can easily be imported on your platform of choice. Our files will meet or exceed the requirements of the platform you request, such as Amazon, Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot etc.
How to Book a 360 Spin Photo?
To create 360 degree photos, simply ship the product to us and tell us:
- what direction the spin needs to go (clockwise or counter clockwise)
- how many frames the spins needs to be.
Please check the requirements of the platform where you intend to use the spin, so we can prepare it accordingly. For example Amazon requires PNG counter clockwise 72 frame spins, while Grainger requires clockwise JPG files in 24, 48, or 72 frames.
When you have a smooth spin you can rework it into a less smooth spin, for example if you have a 72 drams spin, you can edit it into a 36 frame spin if you need to. We don't provide this as a free service, but you can easily do this yourself but copying the original folder into a new one and deleting every other photo.
