Exporting Spherical Panoramas Quality Setting

When exporting a spherical panorama, PS does not ask you to set your JPG compression level.  It should just like it does when saving a regular JPG file.  I noticed this when saving a file 8000px wide and my result was a 1.2MB file.  PS applies the last setting used when a regular JPG file was saved, in my case 6, hence the tiny file size.  WORK AROUND:  Save any old JPG, set quality to desired level, then export your spherical panorama file.

Good catch but even with a setting of 10 I'm not finding the size to be very high, for a 6912px panorama it's only 3.5Mb, the original file was 10Mb !

@webvan, That's strange, I'm getting a full size when quality is set at the highest level (12).  It's important when the images go for further processing by a tiling engine.

Oh I thought it topped out at 10, now I see you can type in 12 manually, thanks, will use that the next time, thanks !
