Will any AdvRiders be showing up for this?
Hell, I'd go if I hadn't just gotten all the metal removed from my ankle a few days ago

Regardless of what software you use to put them together, it's important to overlap your shots by between twenty and thirty percent. Take as many shots as you need to cover the subject--go a little over to either side too. I like to use vertical orientation to capture things like kaia posted.

Google for Canon's PhotoStitch software--it used to be free. I put mine together in Photoshop.

As far as processing, do your best to make all the shots the same exposure, saturation and so on--this is pretty easy in PS as you open all of them at the same time and synchronize them. Some software does this for you. Then stitch them together. It really is that easy.

Of course you'll want to do a little cropping and maybe some more adjustments but if all you do is sync all of the shots then stitch them, you'll get a decent pano from them.
With a point and shoot, I have problems getting all the exposures the same. But I've learned a few tricks. If I use the same reference point for getting the auto exposure set when holding down the button halfway, that helps.

There are several free stiching apps. I use a shareware app for the Mac called DoubleTake. It does 90% of the work for you and provides some controls for blending, gamma, geometry, etc. Many times I just drag the parts into the app and everything is perfect without any adjustment needed.

i use AutoStitch on the photos at full resolution from the camera. depending on how the photos came out, i'll either attempt to tone-match them in a photo-editing software (i use Adobe Lightroom) before stitching them. since i upload to SmugMug, and everything gets resized automatically there... i don't resize on my own anymore, and work at 100% resolution.

i actually enjoy taking pano's now, mainly because of that software. check out some of the one's i've taken

Hmm... a sticker you say... that's a possibility.


As for the timing, yeah yer right. December is the worst time to start something like this, but I had been thinking about it for months and finaly said, "screw it. I need to post this up."

Cheers!
