Why so many copies of Still Photos in TW Tours

Why does Tourweaver make 4 copies of each Still Photo I use in a tour?

In an Auto Tour, that has both Flash and HTML5 version of the tour, there is a copy of the photo in the "scene" folder under Flash and THREE copies in the "scene" folder for HTML5, one for iPhone, one for iPad and one for "PC" which I guess is for Android.


They're all exaclty the same size!


This means when I include a 400kb still photo in a tour, Tourweaver makes 4 copies, taking up 1.6MB of space on the server I PAY by the amount of space I use.


Why can't there be ONE "scene" folder with one copy of each Still Photo that's used by the Flash version and all the HTML5 versions of the tour???

Hello,


The still images will be copied for each device. But we'll see if it possible to improve it.

Why does there have to be a separate copy of each image when they are exact copies??


Makes no sense at all, just lazy programing
