Arqspin 360 interactive photography zoom feature

We are thrilled to announce zoom support in the Arqspin 360 spin viewer! You already know that Arqspin boosts engagement, confidence, and sales while decreasing returns. Now we’ve enhanced our interactive 360 experience: double clicking a spin will zoom in to the highest resolution images available. This update is automatic, so you don’t need to change anything about the way you use Arqspin software.

The zoom feature allows users to focus in on specific details of your spins in high resolution. One of the greatest things about interactive 360 photography is the confidence it gives your customers by providing a realistic sense of your product. Now your potential buyers will get an even more interactive experience and a better feel of your products.

Thanks to Overland for this spin!

Zoom is enabled whenever the original data (video or photos) is higher resolution than the resolution of your HTML5 iframe embed. When a customer double-clicks on your spin they will be able to interact with the highest resolution image available of your product, can pan by moving the mouse, and can double-click again to zoom back out and rotate. On mobile, standard pinch-zoom gestures allow your customer to zoom in and out.

Your spins will still load quickly! We have optimized the loading process so that spins load even faster than before, and high resolution images are streamed to the viewer after the embed-resolution images are fully downloaded.

Thanks to for this spin!

If you haven’t been uploading your spins in high resolution, now is a great time to start! If you are not taking high resolution videos, the zoom feature will not affect your spins. If for some reason you want to disable the zoom feature, simply check the “disable zoom” box in the embed prompt.

If you have any questions about zoom or would like more information about how Arqspin software can improve your customers’ experience, contact us today!

ArqspinAPIAn API (application-programming interface) is a set of programming instructions and standards for accessing a web-based software application or web tool. Here at Arqspin, we offer a search API to our users so that they can seamlessly integrate large volumes of spins into their website.

You might remember our Customer Spotlight on Best Buy, our first user to implement our Arqspin Query API. The API has helped them quickly add spins to thousands of product pages.

Arqspin is normally used to create black or white backdropped 360 product images. But lately we’ve been thinking about new ways to use our system, and we came up with the Arqspin Product Pano Spin. The way it works is you put your product AND your camera or smartphone on a turntable together. Put them directly across the table from one another so that when the turntable spins, the camera is constantly facing the product and capturing the environment spinning around it.


If you read our recent article about hosted data, you’ll recall that a major benefit of having Arqspin host your spins is that it gives you access to the full set of optimizations in our spin viewer. We thought it would be helpful to tell you more about what makes our viewer great and why it’s such an integral part of your investment in Arqspin.


We love seeing how our users implement 360 spins into their websites. But did you know you can use your spins as animated GIFs, too? GIFs, or graphics interchange format, are supported by nearly every web browser and email client. GIFs allow you to embed a short, looping video of your spin into a range of media without the need to be clicked on to display the content. As attention spans on the Internet continue to dwindle, GIFs are a quick and easy way to catch your audience’s attention. Here are three ways you can use your 360 spins as GIFs:


Organizing spins has been difficult for some of our users. To address this challenge, we’re introducing our new tags feature. Tags are the best way to give our users organization as well as flexibility. The benefit to using tags versus traditional folders is that each spin can have more than one tag, but it wouldn’t be able to exist in more than one folder.
