I was scanning some 35mm negatives when I ran across a three shot sequence that looked like an ideal candidate for a stitching test. These pictures were taken over a year ago, hand held, with the hope that I could figure a good way to merge them. I had never heard of stitching at that time.

Anyway, The three shots were stitched in Paint Shop Photo Album 5. I was somewhat leary about using the panorama function in this program. I just assumed that Photoshop Elements would do a better job. However, I am extremely pleased with the results. I may try it in PSE just to see how it compares.

This is the Queen of the West, a full-sized, fully equipped paddle-wheel riverboat that cruises the Columbia River from Astoria, OR at the mouth all the way upstream to Idaho.

NOTE--(Sunday afternoon) Either Photobucket is running extremely slow or the internet, in general is very slow. If the picture does not show, please try again later.

The internet is painfully slow this morning, worse than last night. The picture would load for awhile last night but it is timing out again this morning. I think there is a new virus circulating around the net that is slowing things down. I hate to think what things are going to be like when I get to work. We have a large network (1800 workstations) that shares a single network connection with about ten other local government agencies.

The picture is too large to use as an attachment.

Keep trying. I think (hope) you'll like it.

(edit) I just tried to log on to Photobucket and got a not found message. This forum is very slow. However, I get good response on CNN.com so there must be a major problem somewhere on the net, a router down or something like that.

(edit2) Looks like someone rebooted the internet. The picture is back.

I do see a problem in this panorama. You have to look closely to see it. All three of the original images contained barrel distortion. If you are not looking for it in the pano, it is hardly noticeble. It is most noticeable on the lower deck in front of the paddlewheel, the lower deck in the center of the picture, and the upper deck at the bow.

I may try doing barrel distortion correction on each of the original images and try stitching again.
