View Full Version : Panorama's In Photoshop.
11-24-2004, 01:46 PM
Ive recently been thinking about creating panoramic shots with multiple exposures to get a very wide angle in the shot, the problem i am having is how to stich these photographs together in Photoshop, ive been told that it can be done but just cannot work out how it is done! If anyone can tell me the best way that would be excerlent, or if there is any free software which can be downloaded to do this job, where can i get it from, along with any basic tips for multi exposure panoramic shots! thanks for your help!
Hi Nick! The best tool for sticking that i know is based upon Panorama Tools, a free software developed from German prof. Dersch (look at http://www.path.unimelb.edu.au/~dersch/ and www.ptgui.com)
N.B.: PTGUI is not free, but is free the basic tool "Panorama Tools"
If you look around with google.com you will find tons of documentation.
The basic principle is to 'correct' the point of view of the lens (that is made with pano tools algorithms) and to help the sticker sw introducing manually the corrispondenting points between 2 or more photos.
You must take shots partially superimposed (15 - 30%) starting from the same pov and with the same exposition parameters.
The best case is with landscape without details too nearby and using a tripode.
Is a complex argument, but in realty at the end is a matter of patience and precision.
I find PTGui very good, because i can obtain a sticked panorama in Photoshop file (.psd) with every shot in a different layer: this is perfect for the manual corrections.
Wenn i find out some net addresses for the faq, i will send it to you
P.S.: this mail is perhaps to be posted in the Tips-Techniques section, i think!

If you're using photoshop CS, looks for "photomerge". This can be accessible the file menu then automate.
It is also accessible through photoshop's file explorer.

I have been stiching the photos manually. I am not sure what camera you have - on my digital Olympus 5050 there is something called Panorama assist. It helps you define the overlap area. then I drag them all to photo shop and stich them manually.
I was trying to use some software for that - but they tend to do some other calculation which made the photo looks weired.
