The 360° Gallery component
The 360° Gallery component lets you use a set of multiple images to show an object rotating. By default, the last image wraps to the first, which lets the user rotate the object seamlessly in either direction.
In the following example, 7 source images were used:
Choosing the right gallery
Google Web Designer has four different gallery components:
- The 360° Gallery shows images of different sides of an object, letting you swipe back and forth to rotate the object. The 360° Gallery doesn't show groups or navigation elements.
- The Swipeable Gallery has a simple, flat look, and lets you swipe through images or groups either vertically or horizontally.
- The Carousel Gallery is similar to the Swipeable Gallery, but gives neighboring images a three-dimensional look, as if they were on a rotating display.
- The Transition Gallery offers a range of animation effects while switching from one image to the next.
To use the 360° Gallery in your project:
Open the Components panel, then the Galleries folder.
Drag the 360° Gallery component to the stage.
In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, name the component.
Add images to the gallery by one of the following methods:
- In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, click the Select Gallery images button in the Images field. Click the Choose images button to browse for image files, or drag files directly to the dialog box.
- In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, add URLs for your images in the Images field, separated by commas.
Optionally, adjust additional properties (described below).
To reorder or remove images in the gallery:
- In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, click the Select Gallery images button.
- Drag an image to its new position to reorder it, or hover over an image and click the Delete button to remove the image from the gallery.
- Click OK.
