360 panorama from Noonmark

I pieced together 9 pics I took from Noonmark last Sunday--One of those "no cloud" days It's a whopper--way to big to attach--8000 x 760--but it is pretty cool--If anyone would like it, PM me and I'll Email it to you. There is a small version here:

The stitching worked pretty well. Bluebird day!

What software do you use? For a while I was experimenting with using the blending tools in photoshop and gave up as it was too time consuming to get it 'just right'. I know my camera and other makes come with software that supposedly does the grunt work for you, but haven't had any experience with using them yet. I did take some potential panoramic shots on Giant Monday I would like to see if I could stitch together.

Hey Kevin--I use Panorama Maker 3--It came w/ the software w/ my digital camera-works pretty well with joining edges but you have to keep pretty level when taking the shots as it doesn't allow you adjust the pics up and down much. This is the first time I've used it--pretty simple little program--I didn't have to make any tweeks at all--I also tried Paint Shop Pro but that was way too involved and eats up memory like all get out.

Nice panorama...
I just overcame a milestone with my pano creations. I found a much higher success rate by using manual mode and SPECIFICALLY using manual white balance. I found that most of my skies typically needed some blending between them...and this was caused by the camera's AI thinking for me. Go manual and you'll get better results. Take an average exposure between range of what you get from left to right.

As far as software, I used to use the propriatary Photostitch that came with my Canon cameras, with Zoombrowzer. It works pretty well but I recently started using Autostitch, made by some guys from University of British Columbia.
http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html
unfortunately they just have a trial version so far...no permanent version...I'm still waiting on that.

It's really easy and does all the work for you. Just make sure you change to JPG settings to 100% or full size or whatever before you start or you'll get SUPER-compressed final products that look bad.

Here's a sample that I'm pretty happy with, though the sky looks a tiny bit funny since a big part of it was directly into the sun.

Hi Jack--Thanks-Your's is seamless--Mine came out ok although it needs a little blending in the sky--I have one from Cascade which I'll post soon. It was so windy both days I had a hard time keeping things level as I took the shots

Seeing is believing, so I just HAD to try the autostitch... and it works VERY well!

Here's a 5 shot 180 degree pan (usually you use more photos to make a panoramic) from last weekend's Tongue Mountain range hike...

great job on the stitching. I always have a tough time getting the lighting right since i usually hit the good spots in mid afternoon.

Kevin,
tremendous panoramas. Autotostitch is fantastic, isn't it? As long as you've got decent shots, it will put them together quickly and easily. I'm monitoring their site and will purchase their full version if/when it ever gets done. In the meantime, their trial version is decent and its free.

Wow, thanks for the tip on AutoStitch. I'd say considering the whole thing is less than 1.5MB, this program is pretty amazing. Man, if I take a picture of anything now, might as well take like 30 all around and just stitch them up. It's like the ultimate wide-angle lens.

I just got a new Cannon SD600 and it came with PhotoStitch, so I though I'd give is a quick whorl. Here's a quick 3 photo pana from a local park.



I'm no photographer or anything, but here's the -FULL IMAGE-. Dammed if I could find the seams.

I've not checked out autostitch but from the looks of your photos, works great too.
