Hi all,

I'm trying out panoramas, and I'm VERY NEW at this... here's my first shot.




I know I flubbed up with the lighting... but I'm learning!

Some questions:

1. I used the Elements stitching... is Autostitching easier/better to use?

2. I have a Canon ip6600D printer... and yes, I know I can't print panoramas on it. Are there any online services (Winkflash, etc) that can print panoramas for me?

3. Is there a "good standard size" to create panoramas? (ie. to fit in many frames)?

Thanks for all your help!

Ted

Yes, give all the images the same exposure by using manual mode or auto exposure lock, if possible. Also set a particular white balance like sunny or flash, rather than auto. Your panorama is somewhat restricted in height and I guess you used the camera in landscape orientation. You can increase the vertical angle of view by shooting in portrait orientation, though you will then need more shots, of course.

Autostitch will usually give better results than Photoshop's Photomerge and is easier to use.

Panostar,

Great advice about using my camera in "portrait" orientation! As I've said (and will probably continue to say for years to come! :lol I'm new to all this so I'm really enjoying learning.

Thanks for being supportive and helpful. It's much appreciated!
