I wonder if I'm missing something. With the posting size limit of 120kb or thereabouts, it doesn't seem possible to post a super-wide pano in this forum without compressing it to the point where there's no detail left.
For example, the panorama below of my neighbourhood sized out at 16.0 megs after stitching, after resizing to post I got it down to 120kb. I haven't figured out the compression ratio, but it's obviously up there, way too high to see any significant detail in the picture.

If you have your own web space, you could post a link to an image of any size you like. Your image is certainly long and thin, so maybe deserves the description "super-wide". However, I think it would benefit greatly by including a wider vertical angle of view. The tops of houses and trees might then be captured instead of being chopped off. If you took your images in landscape orientation, try portrait orientation instead. You will need more images to cover the same width, but the image proportions will be much better IMHO.

Yeah, just host it somewhere else and link it here. I use ImageShack, it's FREE and the size limit is 1Meg.

Here's a sample:

With a dial-up connection, I often consider even 120KBytes larger thanis worth waiting to show up.

I thought the limit was 250 kb, although I usually can't post anything over 210 kb.
