The jQuery reel formatter allows you to use the Jquery reel plugin to output your images as a panorama or a 360° view of a place or object.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1 - Create the Panoramic Image

  • Take the photo using a panoramic image capture on your phone or other mobile device. 

Step 2 - Enable and Configure the jQuery Reel Formatter Module

  1. Modules > jQuery Reel Module
  2. Create an image field for the Content Type where you want to display the image in a panoramic view. 
  3. Click on Manage Display after the field is created and configure the image
    • Select Image > jQuery Reel. The configuration display changes next to the gear.
    • Click on the Gear to reconfigure; most importantly change the following options*:
      • Spacing - indicates space between frames on reel.
      • Stitched - for gradhousing.yale.edu we used 10,000 to as the stitched number.
