How To Disable WordPress Large Image Handler For Virtual Tours

You can create virtual tours with high-resolution 360-degree panorama images.

By default, WordPress Image Handler resizes large and very high-resolution images to set them to a maximum dimension of 2560 by 1280 pixels.

So, if you’re trying to upload a high-quality 360-degree panorama image with, let’s say 6000 by 3000 pixels, the handler will resize to the lower dimension automatically.

However, using WP VR, you can disable this default large image handler.
