I found just increasing and uploading the file <tourname>data/thumbnail.jpg had the desired effect.

The thumbnail size straight out of panotour was 400 x 67px which I increased by 400% using the resize image option of irfanview and saved back in its original location to overwrite the original

I got this from Facebook on posting after uploading this new jpg size to my hosting site

Thank you for answering, marzipano! It is not clear to me, I do not understand ... I would like to enlarge the size of the thumbnail and also put another picture! I see many post in a forum facebook made this way but do not know how to do it.. Sorry, but I do not know much about codes ..

Thanks!

If you are talking about linking a tour on a remote web host via a thumbnail on Facebook, I think you can only have one thumbnail on each posting as described in the Kolor Panotour techniques doc (I'm sure someone will correct me if this is not the case !)

The newer Facebook facility of uploading a single 360 degree panorama directly onto Facebook works in a completely different way and allows you to "window" around the panorama a section at a time. You may be able to have more than 1 of these on a posting but I haven't tried this method yet

I was talking about the first one of these above

I also talk about the first option, Martin! What are these Kolor Panotour techniques? I just want the big thumbnail, like the image I attached!

Hello Martin! Solved!!! I understood what you said in your first answer, I believe my poor English was the problem! Sorry for so many questions and thank you very much!
