I recently started posting 360° spherical panos here, and was disappointed to see my zenith and nadir areas pinched/distorted after uploading to Flickr. Any way to avoid this?

It's unbelievable this is not fixed. Take a look at how some other sites display zenith and nadir Flickr. You're the only ones who mess this up. Why no response to this issue?

Any comment about this issue from flickr ? zenit and nadir are distorted and you can't zoom into the image. Can you please improve this viewer.

There have been numerous complaints about this. I suspect the amateurs who coded Flickr's awful VR mode have Ricoh Theta cameras which show their hands at the nadir. And for them a shrunken, soft blur is the best compromise thus they don't want to correct it.

Whatever their reason Flickrs bodging wrecks my images and has gone on too long. I would like to find an alternative home for my work.

Thought this something I was doing wrong but no - this is still happening. Flickr pull your finger out and sort the nadir/zenith pinch issue. Now using kuula for my 360 pics!

Yes, this is very disappointing from Flickr to not take 360 pictures seriously. VR integration would also be very nice!

5 years later and still nada. I've posted on Flickr's suggestion message board, but they give the standard answer. "Yes I understand why you want to... I will forward... blah blah"
