From time to time I have clients use my still images of vacant properties for virtual staging. Has anyone ever had an iGuide virtually staged? Would it be as easy as submitting the tile images for staging and then add these images back to the correct position?
We have a lot of editing done on our stills before sending them out to customers–blue skies, fires in fireplaces, etc. We’ve looked at doing these things for iGuides, however, because they’re panos, we’ve not been able to get things to look right. You’d run into the same problems trying to virtually stage them.
Not saying it can’t be done, we just haven’t been able to figure it out yet.
I have a couple of clients who are also fans of virtual staging for the stills. I just tell them it’s not possible to do to the iguide and they are ok with that – they mostly use maybe six staged photos for their feature sheets. Maybe if you did your own virtual staging you could pull it off but I doubt the amount of effort involved would be worth it. You could always just send the fisheye images to an editor and ask if its possible (although in my experience with the overseas editors, they always say yes regardless of whether they can do something or not
