Fossy,

That is an amazing stitch job too man.. Took me a few minutes to even tell where the photos were put together!

Is there any particular way you should take the photographs to help them stitch together easily? I tried, my attempt was shocking... I think I was perhaps allowing too much overlap when I took the photographs.

It was the angle that buggered mine up - I kept the camera in the centre of my garden with the tripod and panned it round but like if i line up one bit of one photo properly, on the other photo half the window ledge is about 1cm higher than the other half

Purple,

Check that your tripod is level - I mean super level - a few mm's off at the base translates into a half centimetre or so at the top end.

Also, check that your tripod can pan freely - I've seen some that are on a thread so you are screwing the base up or down - these are no good for panoramas as the further you go around the higher the shot becomes! :-(

The tripod pan's freely turbo, but i think perhaps I was just allowing too much overlap on each frame - I'll try it again but a bit tighter on the framing of each photo this time.

Is there any apps out there specifically for doing panoramas or is photoshop the best bet?

Historical Photo Stitching

Postby AMcD » Mon Jun 07, 2004 7:34 pm

Was having a look through some photos of Union Street on the virtual mitchell site and noticed it might be possible to stitch some of the shop front photos together. Here's a first attempt.

Didn't work as well as I hoped as I didnae know what kind of lenses were used in the originals, and the source images weren't all from the same time frame, so I was left with a few 'hawf-motors'. Some creative cut and paste later and it doesn't look too bad !

Looks a lot more ornate to me....

Or are you talking about the fact that it was extended at some point? I remember hearing it went from having three "Arched window" sections to having five.

Yer correct Dr Lightning... it went from four arches to *EDIT* six.

Here's a picture from 1978

And more recent with more bays added following the fire in '88

Aye, I thought so. That first pic is (I think) by Douglas Corrance. I was going to use it in the Past/Present thread, as I took a pic from the same spot last week. Just haven't bothered my arse yet.

Looks like they've cleaned the building up as well.
