slideshow with realtor logo fotoguy 13 7 yearsrpetersn (2010): Hi Great question re: what is meant by a "gallery site". I'll try to be more clear here: We built WP3D Models to help Matterport Service Providers quickly incorporate their content into their websites. The only catch is that your site has to be built on WordPress. Considering that WordPress powers over 27% of the Internet, our software can be instantly added to any site built on this platform. But, even with WordPress'...
Matterport bought iGuide google ad PetraSoderling 20 7 yearsViewing (589): Google were fined £2bn today for messing with search results. Let's not hold them or their rules up as beacons of ethics. If you pay them enough or are one of their pet projects you will rank where you like for whatever key terms you like. @Kevin_iGuide Hats off for not getting walked all over.
Matterport: Personal data and authority DanSmigrod 3 7 yearsdtavres (106): I'm also not a lawyer, but I'm very doubtful that Matterport will ever sue a photographer who: a) Bought a camera for $3,000+, b) Paid for the processing and hosting, c) Took the photos, d) Sold the final product to clients The bad press Matterport would get would likely KILL sales of new cameras, which would also cause a potential buyout from Google/Facebook/etc. to be looked at twice, AND would likely also KILL the market for Real...

Property Release Form: How? When? Why? DanSmigrod 2 7 yearsArtisticConcepts (681): Thank you for offering the Sample Forms Library! I complete the tour details the night before the scan and I pull a photo from Google SV. I have the form preloaded in my iPadPro upon arrival. The agent or owner signs it directly in Acrobat Pro with an Apple Pencil just before I have them give me an "Open House" Tour (I ask them to show me the home just as if I were a qualified and interested buyer. That way I know what features they...

licensing and pricing schemes jntooker 2 8 yearshometakes (1134): I am in the tour business and I license "Amenity and town tours" for my videos through Vimeo. The cool thing with Vimeo is that I can set the licensed 'embedded videos' only to play on what ever URL's I tell them to play on. This way, I have control over the videos as to whether they plays on the licensees website. They don't pay the bill, I take their URL off off Vimeos system and of course their videos won't work anymore. It would...

scanning for legal purposes? BrettMtn 7 9 yearsccctucker (154): Crime scenes are no different than houses, I use a $50000 faro scanner and you just have more flexibility with it (daylight, night, ect...). We really only use it to get the point cloud and draw our diagrams from it. They have a program called webshare that is just like the MP walkthru. The MP would be great for forensics if I could register the scans myself...can't send off the data for the cloud thing. Anyways, you can always use then...
Legal Documents DavidH 1 9 yearsDavidH (25): What is everyone using in terms of legal documents when shooting a new space for a client? I am getting this set up now, and am planning to use a simple purchase agreement, a hold harmless agreement, and just a basic invoice. Is there anything else people in this forum are using? Just don't want to leave myself liable for anything I haven't thought of. Thanks, David Hughes
