What sets a good travelogue apart?
A travelogue is an experience. A good travelogue takes the reader to the destination and helps him experience the place. It paints a powerful evocation wherein the user experiences the place along with you. Using awesome imagery is the perfect way to bring that immersive experience into your travelogue.
One may ask, “But I include good pics in my blog?” Isn’t that enough?
That’s good but do your pictures tell a story? Your photo may capture curvy roads leading to the hills but will it tell how you felt driving on it? The turns. The steep. The view.
“I add videos to create the experience.”
That’s good but how about giving your readers a much more engaging experience by adding text descriptions, audios, images and videos in the same picture? Wouldn’t it help you tell the story of the place in a more powerful way? If the answer is Yes, read on.
Renyoo, our latest app can help you spin a beautiful picture into an interactive graphic so as to give your readers an immersive experience. And not just that. It can help you organize your precious pictures and carry it wherever you go.
How Renyoo helps you write vivid travelogues?
So you want to write a travelogue on your recent visit to the magnificent ‘Pyramids of Giza’?
Your write up will probably include how to get there, the history behind it, people who built it and other information. Currently, the choice before you is to add 6-7 images or a couple of videos to give a detailed description of the place.
Renyoo offers you a better choice!
Pick your best shot of the pyramids and add hotspots. You can add up to 9 hotspots to your images. You can also highlight and zoom a part of the image and add a hotspot to emphasize it. On your hotspots, you can insert a map to pinpoint the part of the world where the pyramids are located. Feed interesting facts & trivia via text descriptions and URLs. Add a 30-second audio recording or a video shot to walk through the timeline and history of the pyramids. You can also add other pictures you shot in the location to complete the entire experience. Now that’s an Interactive Travelogue Experience!
The image with all your hotspots is called a POD. Renyoo also allows you to Embed Responsive PODs on your blogs and websites just like an image but alive with annotations. Your readers can click on the hotspot to view the content added to it.
Renyoo does more than that. Travel writers are always visiting new places in a year and shoot thousands of pics and videos. Our app allows you to organize your work by adding Tags to your pictures and create Collections to catalog and classify them for easy discovery.
You can also carry your entire collection of annotated pictures and access them anywhere, anytime using the Renyoo app. Don’t have internet access? Download your POD and access it offline!
Add smart GeoTags to your pictures and set reminder alerts. Renyoo will alert you to view them as you are around your location. So the next time you’re around the “Pyramids”, we will notify you to show the images you’ve shot on your previous trip.
Want to share your PODs with your friends or followers on social media. You can do it via a URL on email or social. The shared URL is encrypted and is available for access by the viewers only for 24 hours. (Isn’t that sweet!)
With its innovative features, Renyoo is a perfect fit for travel bloggers and enthusiasts. Use it to tell your travel stories to the world!
