How to add a featured image to your virtual tour

add a featured image to your virtual tour

My360 recently introduced the new “featured image” option so you can now add a featured image to your virtual tour. You can simply add a “normal” image, take a screenshot of the best part of the virtual tour and add that or get a little more creative and create a featured image for your virtual tour that converts!

The featured image is also important to keep your brand consistent. So if you create a “template” for your featured image, you can use the same style over and over again which people will start recognising soon.

In this tutorial we use Canva, the easiest drag & drop image designer software we know of… and what’s more… it’s FREE! 🙂

Canva does have paid features, but for what you are doing today, you can easily just use the free plan.

Here’s a quick guide on how to add a featured image to your virtual tour:

  1. Go to Canva

  2. Click “create a design”

  3. Choose “Facebook Ad” (1200×628 px)

  4. Choose any pre-made design and add your own images

  5. Create your own design

  6. Download your design

  7. Go to the tour profile in My360

  8. click on “profile images”

  9. Upload the design to the “featured image” section

  10. Check what it looks like using the Facebook Debugger Tool
