The main function of {{Panorama}}, as opposed to {{Wide image}}, is that the template allows you to specify a desired height of the panorama.

{{Panorama
|image   = File:Example.jpg
|height  = 
|width   = 
|alt     = 
|caption =

{{Panorama
|image   = File:Ushuaia_panorama_from_seaside_big.jpg
|height  = 230
|alt     = A small city across a gray waterway under lowering gray clouds. A road leads to the city across a causeway. Mountains with snow and a low treeline form the backdrop. A few boats are in the water.
