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.

Choosing the right gallery

Google Web Designer has three different gallery components:

  • 360° Gallery - The 360° Gallery is optimized to show an object on all sides, swiping back and forth to turn the object around. The 360° Gallery has limited options, and cannot show groups or navigation elements.
  • Swipeable Gallery - The Swipeable Gallery gives you a simple, flat look, and lets you move through images or groups either vertically or horizontally.
  • Carousel Gallery - 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.

To use the 360° Gallery in your project:

  1. Open the Components panel, then the Galleries folder.

  2. Drag the 360° Gallery component to the stage.

  3. In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, name the component.

  4. 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.
  5. Optionally, adjust additional properties (described below).

To reorder or remove images in the gallery:

  1. In the 360° Gallery properties section of the Properties panel, click the "Select Gallery images" button .
  2. Drag an image to its new position to reorder it, or hover over an image and click the delete icon  to remove the image from the gallery.
  3. Click OK.
