Make this image

I couldn't use our online software to stitch properly your images because:

- out of your 12 images, there are many redundant, taken at roughly the same angle

- you are moving up and down while rotating

Best,

This is an excellent instructable, very useful for what I needed. I've linked back here through my most recent ible.

I can see why this might seem "Spammy" to some people, when you're trying to promote your business endeavor through instructables it's hard not to come across as an advertisement (after all, that's really what this is).

But I want to assure everyone that this service is just what it claims, you get to very simply and quickly make a 360 degree panorama out of your own images.  I only wish there was a way to embed it in the instructable!

Smells like spam to me.

I agree, this does seem quite spammy to me. Its flagged.

Hi there,
I am new to instructables, and I don't have the intention to make anything wrong. If there is a rule that was broken here, please tell me which one, and I'll try to correct.

I apologize jumping on your instructable the way I did, however, spam does have a habit of popping up with new 'members' and since most of the active people here lend a helping hand in the filtering process. I must caution you against posting things that might seem like spam (this one does sort of have that feel to it). If you want to double-check  if an instructable seems like it or not, you can drop by the official #instructables chatroom and ask, someone is normally in there.
I hope I didn't come off as too mean. Oh, and make more instructables, thats what the site is for(look around at the other well received instructables if you're having trouble)

Thank you, I fully understand your reaction and I'll certainly follow your advice.
