Image specifications

Formats & sizes

Teliportme accommodates full, partial, and stereo/3D spherical panoramas alongside standard flat images.

Teliportme analyzes the file's EXIF and XMP metadata to determine its type.

Common 360 cameras like Ricoh Theta, Insta360, and GoPro Max typically include this information, as do drones capturing aerial panoramas, although many 360 renders may not.

In the absence of spherical metadata, the system categorizes images based on these rules:

  • Full Panorama: Images with a width exceeding 3840px and a 2:1 aspect ratio.

  • Partial Panorama: Images with a width exceeding 3840px and an aspect ratio greater than 2.

  • Stereo/3D Panorama: Images with a width exceeding 3840px and a 1:1 aspect ratio.

Images that don't align with these criteria are treated as standard flat images.

Compression and upload quality

Teliportme ensures that all uploaded images retain their original resolution by utilizing a multiresolution viewer. Regardless of the resolution you upload, Teliportme maintains image quality with zero compression.

All images are encoded as JPGs, regardless of their original format. They are optimized in various sizes for different devices, ensuring an optimal viewing experience.
