Viewing a 360 degrees photo in QuickTime!

360 degrees photos are really great to look at, but the controls are not obvious. It is pretty straightforward to control with the mouse, but there is no info about how to do it with the keyboard and the keyboard is really the best choice because of how much faster it works. You can guess the basic controls, the arrows. This is what I have always been using. But, I always went back to the inefficient mouse to zoom in and out. I finally stumbled upon the real shortcuts. "Shift" will zoom in and "Ctrl" will zoom out. There is one thing to consider though. If the mouse isn't over the photo when you use Shift or Ctrl, it doesn't work. You can see how I can quickly control this 360 photo with the keyboard:

The tip was on how to look at a 360 picture in QuickTime. Making them is another story. I create them with RealViz Stitcher. The application costs $119 for the Express version, $349 for the Pro version and $580 for the Unlimited version.
