Import 360 Images
Find a 360 image you would like to import, resolutions for 360 images can vary a lot.
When uploading back into Google Poly the limit on resolution size is 4096 x 4096. You can use any 360 image with a width up to 4096, height for a 360 image should always be half the size of the width. So the max resolution for 360 image is 4096 x 2048 most likely the best you can find is a 4000 x 2000 image. However you don't actually have to use a 360 image on the sphere but expect some distortion of the image if not. Some abstract images or pictures of planets can work fine at least on a good portion of the sphere.

Here are some good high resolution 360 Images.[texturify.com]
