Create a Thumbnail Image

Pano2VR allows you to create a thumbnail image from your panoramic image. To do this, choose Transformation from the Output panel.

  1. Choose the type of thumbnail to output from the Transformation settings.

  2. Adjust the size of the image. Usually, the default size will suit well.

  3. If you want the background to be opaque (or semi-opaque) rather than transparent, click on the color well to change the color/transparency.

  4. Next, choose the view of the thumbnail image. The default view defined in the viewing parameters is used by default. However, you can override this by de-selecting, Use default view and then adjust the sliders.

  5. Choose an output format. PNG, TIFF and OpenEXR support an alpha channel (transparency) while JPEG and Radiance HDR do not.
    If you have chosen to output your image as JPEG, you can adjust the (JPEG) quality of the image.

  6. Finally, make sure your image is being saved where you want it by
    clicking the folder icon in the output section..

  7. Click the Generate Output button (cog).
