Rejection of 360 degree pix

Question

I am trying to upload 360 degree photographs but keep getting rejections: "360 image upload fail. Projection type must be Equirectangular".

My photos are all equirectangular - eg 15004x7502 or 15012x7506 etc. No other image library is rejecting my pictures.  What does Alamy know that noone else appears to?

I am frustrated and going crazy by this. 

Can anyone help?

I don't know much about 360 images but it seems they are claiming about the 'projection' not the 'proportions i.e. Equirectangular projection

Yes your proportions are rectangular but maybe in projecting the image from a sphere to a flat image another projection method was used.

Just a hunch but does the projection get written into the metadata? Even if you are using an Equirectangular projection to flatten the image maybe this has not been written out. That would seem the only way that Alamy would know that a specific projection was or was not used.
