Please provide an option to save high-quality panorama results to the mobile device. Save in the background, if needed, using a low priority thread. Bonus points if you use high quality compression (100% jpeg) to minimize loss.

Due to the limitations of mobile phone performance and for the rapid stitching and sharing, DJI GO’s panorama function uses scaled-down photos. For instance, a 4:3 photo may have an original resolution of 4000x3000 but the resolution used for stitching will be 960*720.
Due to the stitching algorithm, the height of the panorama may be lower than original photos. To retain original resolutions, post processing photos using original files stored on the micro-SD card is recommended. The original files are in the directory of SD card/ DCIM/PANORAMA/.To download the panorama into your mobile device, you need to open it in the DJI GO app-> Library and download it using the left corner download icon. Thus the panorama picture will be saved in the local camera roll of your mobile phone.

Thanks for the response, Amy.

This is understandable from a rapidity and sharing point of view. Nonetheless, it would be very nice to have that option. My iPhone's native camera app already does this very well, at full resolution. I just took a test pano which resulted in a 12.3 Mb file with a resolution of 13716x3756. I can't believe that mid-high range android devices would have issues as they tend to have far, far superior memory and power.

I have zero interest in instant sharing and much prefer quality over rapidity / data costs - I can't be alone in this. The whole point of my buying a DJI product was for super quality over a Feiyu + Hero Session/Polaroid Cube.

So now I have a decision.

Choice A:
1) Use the Osmo to very quickly and very easily take the multiple panorama source images.
2) Go to a computer.
3) Transfer the photos.
4) Load photoshop, if I have it, or scour the internet for a decent free stitcher.
5) Fiddle fiddle fiddle, possibly repeat 4 and 5.
6) Miss the party.

Choice B:
1) Open an an app on my phone
2) be as still as possible, hold my breath

Choice B will win in most situations and the user will not have the option to re-stitch at home using the source photos.

A compromise would be to allow the user to import the full-size original photos so that they can use another app on the phone to do the stitching. That would avoid extensive programming and even provide a wider choice as users tend to have different favorite apps for mobile post processing. They could even upload those files to a dedicated stitching service, like Dermandar.
