    I make same tour in appartment using panoramas with resolution 18’966 x 8608. I thing it is to much. Weight of one panorama is about 100mb. When I upload tour on web serwer it work little slowly. I would like do resize this panoramas. Whot will be enough resolution of panoramas for inside appartment tour ?
    Do you think 9000×4000 will be enought ? My last tour weight 1.36gb , I thing it is to much.

    I was thinking about some other issue. It is better to make photos in full resolution to make proces of glue together each photos more easy for Autopano and downsize just final panorama or maby make downsize each photos before processing by Autopano ?

    for me, around 12k wide equirectangular is usually more than enough for most normal interiors like typical apartment, unless you need or want more resolution for zooming in on architectural details like in a church or small items in a shop or museum etc

    stitching smaller images vs downsizing final pano, result is probably pretty close in the end either way, you should try both and see which is faster on your computer

    The optimum image size is 13312 x 6656. Might sound strange but Panotour uses 512px tiles. Same for Google street view.

    You need to be very careful when you are creating tours for web. remember that not all users have a good connection and Good mobile devices

    There’s two aspects to this..

    1. The equi rectangular image size you have to work with locally
    2. The size of the image(s) when hosted that your viewers have to download

    You want your source image to be as large as possible when photoshopping or stitching etc but you want the web version to download fast and I think that’s what you’re asking about?

    I use some tour software that supports multi0resolution images and breaks the equi down into tiles.
    I consider this vital functionality as a lot of our 360 photos are viewed by tourists who might be charged for excessive data usage or might be on relatively poor wifi while on holidays.

    Personally my equi rectangular images are 14000 x 7000 with some being produced at 8000 x 4000
    It really depends on the final use case. With the larger resolution images I can comfortably go fullscreen on my iMac and it looks good. if the photos is just going to be embedded on Facebook then I generally go smaller.

    Not sure if I can post the name of my tour software here but I’ll PM you if interested.
