How to show Panorama (360°) pictures in full size

Hello,

I am new to jAlbum and got problems to show Panorama 360 pictures. It seems the Pano pics are reduced in size as set for normal pictures (like 1200x1200)
I think for proper view I need the full resolution of the pano pics.
How can I exclude these pics to change resolution wile generation a album?

Thanks
Jörgen

You can override individual image sizes by using custom variables, but the easy way to do this is to use this external tool. Download the attached file and double click it to install it, then follow the instructions in the manual for the tool in the post mentioned.

Remember though that if using a responsive skin the image will still shrink to fit the viewport.

An easy trick is usually to set the image bounds to an extreme, like 10000x800. That will scale ordinary JPEG images to ordinary size (they won't be stretched) and allow panoramas to be up to 10000 pixel wide.

I advice you to use my Slide Show 4 skin, my PhotoSwipe skin or my FancyBox skin which has special (360°-) panorama viewers, see this panorama example album.

Hi,

thanks for the answers. There is may be a misunderstanding.
I properly asked in the wrong way. I want to show spherical Panos, we say in German "Kugel-Pano" were you look around by mouse movement and not just wide pictures. So need to upload a equirectangular picture and the viewer should show it as sperical Pano.

Is this possible with your skin´s Andre?

Perfect, any special setting necessary or just standard?

Thanks for the quick reply. ;-)

PS: My 360pics are made with the Ricoh Theta

You have to indicate that an image is a spherical panorama, see the manual.

I Can´t get it to work, so used FancyBox skin, setup a folder with some pics from the Ricoh Theta and activated the spherical panorama tick box for each pic as described in the manual.
Then generated an album and tested the result via Firefox browser, but the pics are still flat.
So what did I wrong?

Attach the project file and show the link to the album, so I can help you or send an email.

Did you click the expansion button in the upper right corner?
Spherical panorama pictures can’t be viewed locally, you have to upload the album to view expanded spherical panoramas.

Checkmark ‘Don’t use panorama viewers’ on the slide page options page is set in your project file, do clear it.

And for the best resolution it is also possible to use panoramic images not processed by jAlbum, by saving these pictures in a ‘panslides’ sub directory of the output directory, see this example album.
Open the skin manual and search for the text 'spherical' (Ctrl+F on a windows PC).

While searching for current jAlbum skins that support 360° panoramas, I stumbled across this, already somewhat older forum post. A long time ago I invested a lot of work in creating my travel blog, for which I also made some modifications to the underlying Turtle skin. After so much work, you don't just switch to a new skin, even if you suddenly have the desire to integrate some 360° drone panoramas into the website.

After a lot of trying I found a solution by adding the panoplayer of Pano2VR to my Turtle 5.5.2 skin. The panoramas are based on pano images of the DJI Mavic Air, which were stitched with PanoramaStudio Pro. For the pano's operation I created my own buttons, to harmonize with the design of the Turtle Skin.

Even though the Turtle Skin is no longer up to date, the integration of the panoplayer is not completely flawless and the mobile responsiveness demanded today is not fully available, I think the result is quite good. If you are interested in my solution, just follow the red markers on this sitemap.

See 360 degree player in Tiger skin
Tiger is the replacement for Turtle

I know that! But as I explained, there is a reason why I don't want to redesign the site completely. And to be honest: I find my solution more beautiful and the player is much smoother than Tiger's ;-)
