Then I replaced the pictures with my cube faces of the panorama which I had allready, of course I had to resize it. After that renamed the file into pano.wdgt, droped it into widget from iBooks Author .
With this little trick I could safe the money for the Kolor panotour pro program.
The only proble I have I can't resize the picture, there the output is set to 960 x 540 px I woild like a full screen 1024 x 768 px
Is there any hint or also another easy way to do this?
Are you saying your widget works, but the image sizes are wrong? Or are you saying the widget does not work at all? - Fabe

The widget works fine, the only "problem" I like to have it fullscreen and not in the 960 x 540 px.
In the xml or html file is nothing about the output setting mentioned.
Have you tried to create a panorama yet.

No, I've not tried a panaroma in IBooks Author.
I did download and view the original "Cattle" panorama. Large and fine.
I have to speculate your original images are too small to begin with if the final result is small.

My picture where originally 2000 x 2000 px so I reduced it, the thing is in the description http://www.panophoto.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=10417&p=158423&hilit=ibook# p158423
is mentioned the the owner has resized the picture window to 960 x 540 px....
I am just lokking for the file where the size is described.
I have to go in the dashboard widget generation, maybe there I can modifie it.

As soon I made it I let you inform.
At the moment I am waiting for my plane in CGN and my iPad is in the suitcase....

The recently released iAd Producer 4.0 has support for creating iBooks Author HTML5 widgets, and has a template for a panorama widget, as well as an object for creating 360 degree product views. I watched an Apple engineer at an iBooks Author workshop create a panorama from scratch, complete with interactive hot spots, and he made it look super simple!

Hi Patixa, I Just made some panorama images using iPad and 360panorama app. Can you please tell me how to prepare the images for either panorama object or the 360View object in iAD? I have one image. Do I need to split it to 6 to be able to cover the sides of the cube? Maybe you could recall from the workshop, please? Thank you.

For the panorama object, the image was sliced into 6 parts, each stored at iPad (1024x768) and iPad Retina (2048x1536) image sizes, using the "@2x" notation for the Retina images. The engineer dragged the images onto the panorama object, changed some of the panorama object's parameters until it filled the iPad screen, and he had a working panorama in a matter of minutes. I suspect, however, that the majority of the work was carving up the images before the demo.
The 360 view is really a fancy image rondel or zoetrope. You drop in a bunch of images that show an object slightly rotated from its predecessor to give the illusion of a 3D model. You can see a functional example at the Safari Dev Center:
NASA has also done something similar with their rover pics.
I hope that helps!
