Anyone know of a way to have your panorams printed? A website to send the picture to and have them send it back maybe?

I haven't used them, but I found it a while back and filed it away in case I ever have a panoramic worth printing.

If you are shooting/stitching to a 2:5 aspect ratio, that matches the Advantrix (sp?) pano size so cheap 4x10" prints can be made at Wal*Mart, ... That is also an aspect ratio which works well for greeting/birthday/Christmas/... cards - print two of them on double sided heavyweight matte paper and cut them apart.

Unless I am shooting for the web, pretty much all of my panos are aimed at a 2:5 aspect ratio. Other ratios can get very pricey to print real quick.

I recently did a pano project where I took 16 shots of my sons high school class "in the round" It was very important to me to get a first rate print. I found this site in New York. They where etremely helpful. The price was very reasonable! bigposter.com I sent them a very large pano file that was comprised of 16 shots of the kids. the ultimate picture was 7" high x 84" wide. I was elated when I opened the box and saw the quality! I will use them from now on.

BTW... I mounted the print on a curved board to replicate the way I took the actual picture ( actually 240 degree circle)

kaman, that sounds like an interesting mounting system. If I have my math right, that works out to a circle with a ratius of 20 inches. Is the pano then viewed by putting your head/eye at the center of the circle? Seems that would be a pretty good viewing distance for a print seven inches high.
