I took 8 shots of this pier.

Then used autostitch to make thispanaroma with 3 of the shots

Since I took each of them from the SAME position on the dock,the final blend makes the dock look"bowed" in the middle (the cracks are curved)

In retrospect, I should have taken a shot on the left, in the middle, and from on the right of the dock, instead ofall from the center.

but now what can I do to "correct" this photo.Is there a program that will let you "move"the lines/cracks on the dockforwardso they are parallel across? (remember powergoo?).

I have photoshop and elements. What can I do to fix this, if anything?

Autostitch only outputs in equirectangular format. This means that only vertical
straight lines will be preserved. Horzontals become curved. You should try
Autopano Pro, which is similar but gives you the choice of rectilinear projection
in which all straight lines are preserved. The angular view then needs to be restricted to
no more than around 100 degrees to avoid stretching at the edges.

I remapped the image from equirectangular to rectilinear with PTGui and got a
decent result, but I had to use Photoshop's transform tool to tidy it up.

VERY NICE!
impressive results.

I will check out Autopano Pro.
Is "PTGui" a part of it?

Hopefully I can figure out how to do this for future projects.

Will need to learn how to "free transform" too.

Thanks!

Ptgui is not part of Autopano Pro, which is a relatively new automatic stitcher. PTGui is more of a manual stitcher
with optional automatic features. I have been using it for about 6 years.
