yes panopress is easy...
look at my gigapixel site, I use the generic.html template but also the panppress plugin...
the sourcecode I've to place in my article looks like:
[pano file="potted-plant-macro/potted-plant-chrysantheme-macro.swf" width="464" height="429" preview="pottet-plant-chrysantheme-preview.jpg"]
Link to panorama (default created by Panotour Pro): Potted plant - Chrysantheme
so create a preview image and define the dimension of the preview and use a dynamical path... easy as possible...
above example on my site: http://www.gigapixel.at/?p=443
