    Was looking for some old photos and found this panoramic photos I did sometime ago, they are composed from a minimum of 8 photos to a maximum of 10. I used this software: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html to stich the photos together, works very well and does it all automatically.

    very nice paulo, i ilke the one on the top the best with the people in the top right corner. gives a good idea of scale with them in.

    ive used autostitch quite a few times but gone over to CS3 recently for prints as the free version of autostich only does 72dpi. Its a great program though, very simple to use.

    All stunning images Paulo. Did you move the camera manually or do you have increment equipment?

    Regards,

    Thanks Stu, I didn't know CS3 could stich photos together also, is it a special extra for it?


    Thanks Jase, I moved along the horizon manually, just have to make sure you capture at least 10-15% of the previous shot on the next one in order for the stiching to work properly.

    Thanks George, you should its great and there are some great tricks you can do with it too. Like appear in the same image a few times in different postions lol I will have to test this one to show you.

    nope its built in under the File --> automate menu option. Cant quite remember what its called now but its pretty obvious from the menu once you drill down.

    Ive done quite a few panoramics as I like the widescreen view plus some of our beach scenes in North Wales are ideal for it.

    This was an older autostitch which worked quite well. Its about 6 or 8 portrait shots mixed together

    Snowdonia done with CS3

    The River Dee with CS3 but this is a HDR panoramic. 4 shots across the view but 3 different exposures for each shot so take the twelve images, process them for HDR down to 4 then stitch the 4.

    Dinas Dinle Beach in CS3. Cant remember how many shots

    Cheers both :D You've got to be quick with the HDR panos as if you're not the clouds will move and it'll wreck the stitch!

    all great photo's, this thread come up at the right time as i was about to ask for some panoramic stitching software :p
    credit to you on that one though!

    EDIT: just had a go using the test images they provide, and the edge comes out all wavy, do you have to crop it out or something, Paulo?
    Also, is it better to use more images?
    I have just tried it on my tank, 2 images came out rubbish, but 3 were a bit better, or was it just conicendence?

    Thanks a lot
