Panoramic images

posted on 20th of august, 2009
Shooting panoramic images is not as difficult as you might think while admiring brilliant effects. One of our users, Imagestalk, recently

Thanks for sharing great information on panoramic images! I have two things to add: (1) I prefer an overlap of 60% - Why? Because sometimes the only way to save a composition is to throw away an image that just did not come out. And using an overlap of 60% allows for that. (2) I shoot hand-held because a tripod that is not exactly level will result in a curved horizon. No matter how "real" this is, it looks funny in the final composition and CS5, at least, has trouble lining these images up. It is, however, critically important that you line up the horizon manually from image to image. I choose some percent of the bottom of the image that marks the horizon, then keep my eyes on that same portion of the view finder on each picture taken.
