Forgot I had a stitching program that can with my camera. It doesn't really give you a clean seam but it's a start. Man, this is fun! :?

Thanks for looking!
Chris

Nice picture !

Looks like Soho area.

What camera did you use?

How many images to make the pano?

Do not notice seam.

Thanks Bill! I think it was 7 photos. I used my 20D and 28-70mm f/2.8 lens. I handheld the camera for these shots. Next time I'll use a tripod and shoot something that isn't so close :-) I kind of like the fisheye effect :G

Thanks for the prompt reply!

I forgot to type in :

What program are you using for your panos?

I have been using Autostitch. A true "no brainer", my favorite kind, just load and click!

But I am looking for a different (free) program. I am using a panasonic TZ-1 5mp. When I shoot 3 images (3.5 to 3.8 mp each) the complete pano is under 800 kb! This limits the degree of enlargment greatly!

What I use is also a no brainer type program. That hardest part is organizing the photos :G I use PhotoStich. It came with the 20D. I'm guessing it's a Canon program :?:

Hello CMOY!

I think I found a "no brainer" pano program that does not make the final pano too small.

There is a tutorial at YouTube. It also does a very nice job of cropping the pano as well as serve as a photo editor and burner.

Look for:

WINDOWS LIVE PHOTO GALLERY

It's made by Microsoft.

If you keep the tripod level, you will not have the off verrtical buildings. That perspecitive distortion can be corrected with better stitching programs. Also the "fisheye effect" is projection distortion which also can be corrected. Being close is not a source of any problems, though it can increase problems that exist.

The automagical stitching program you used has to be very good to deal with seven hand-held frames. However, better programs exist albeit harder to use. If you want to look into those, look at ones that are based on Panorama Tools. There are several, PTGui, PTAssembler, PTMac, Hugin, ... All are GUI front ends to Panorama Tools
