Uploading Panoramas to BP


 
 
I enjoy making large panoramas, but have not figured out how to upload them to my BP gallery in a way that allows them to be seen for what they are... BIG.
My huge (12'x 3' and larger) pictures are reduced to accomodate the dimensions of a standard BP thumbnail, and the "full size" image is no wider than a standard picture, but so much narrower that the impact is just lost!

Most other people showing panos seem to have the same problem, yet I have noticed that other members have photos in their galleries which you actually have to scroll across the screen to take in. I am jealous! Does anyone know how this is done?

  Make them too long they'll display smaller.

anonymous A.    True, Gregory... but some folk have found out how to display them wider than the screen (I have a 17.5" monitor). More more dramatic!

  I have two stitched pictures and the one with the wider ratio displays smaller.
So I guess you have to find the point where it will display bigger.

  I may be mixing apples and oranges, but for my panos, I resize the smallest number (usually the vertical), to 480 pixles and the other adjusts automatically. Then, I upload it. I don't think there's any size limitation on the other number; e.g., it could be 480 x 2000, and if so, you'd certainly be scrolling.

  It may not. I have one and David says he has one.

  Here's one of my larger-sized panos, in the horizontal. Again, I may be mixing apples and oranges...but it's pretty large in the horizontal:

  It may be because of the larger file size of stitched photos.
