Can anyone recommend third party applications (preferably free/low
cost) or Photoshop workflows that will cut up high resolution
('gigapixel') photos into tiles and place these in the pyramid
directory structure that GE uses for the PhotoOverlay > ImagePyramid
element?

Hi HaysRockDoc,

To my knowledge, there's no application that does that yet. Sounds
like a good niche to fill.

Let gigapan.org do the hard work for you, by uploading the image
there ;)

Bingo!!! Digital Urban just released exactly what I was looking for:

P.S. Thanks for the heads up about GigaPan, Barry. It's a nice
service and I'm going to continue using them, but I really wanted the
ability to host the data myself, and Digital Urban's freeware does
that in a way that GigaPan does not.

Funny enough I was just coming here to post about that!

(haven't tried it yet, but it looks perfect!)
