Flat Images uploaded as 360° - How to fix it?

All my Images uploaded with Android Smartphone App (version 3.160) are changed to be shown as 360° images, but they are normal camera images. Very ugly image view, flat image to be shown like 360° image in the app.

How can the wrong sequences get fixed?
What shall I change in App settings to get it fixed for future sequences?

Here some of the sequence keys:

… and many more.

probably email support

I found out, that changing flat images to 360°-panorama image is done, if [settings / camera / ‘Take low resolution images’] is set in the App. If unset, uploaded images are shown as regular images.

I’ve sent a list of all wrong formatted sequences to support email two days ago. Hope, it will be fixed soon.

my Sugestion:

  • delete the images on mapillary
  • shave of one pixel of the height or with of the image, so that the width is NOT twice the height
  • upload again

And I’ll bet you a good bottle of whisky (or whiskey :P) that it’ll do what you expect…

PS: width = 2 x height is THE setting for mapillary to think they are 360 images…


Mapillary could enable an option in their app below the “take low resolution” with the option NO 360

your suggestion is working but it is a new added difficult. Please enable an option to avoid 360 false pictures

Thank you for mentioning that W=2*H is the criterion for 360 images : had cut distorted top and bottom edges off Samsung gear 360 (2016) pics, which were then processed as 270° images.
