I have a newbe question, please do not laugh too much. When I want to make a flashpanorama with 6+2 images, how do I then name them. The tutorial only operates with 4+2 images.

Well, after you shoot your pano with the camera, in your case 6+2, you will need to stitch the images with stitching software.

The best stitching software is PTgui (http://ptgui.com) a trial version is available.

When the images have been stitched, you render an output file which will be equirectangular. In PTgui you convert the single image file to 6 cube faces (front, right, back, left, up and down).

That is how you get the "4+2", more commonly known as "cube faces".

Hopefully this helps explaining things a little.
