Chapter 12. Photo Projects > Make a Photo Panorama

Make a Photo Panorama

If you've ever tried to shoot a panorama on a film camera and then link the prints to show them, you've probably noticed that, even when shooting using a tripod, it's next to impossible to get the linkages right. One side of the shot is often darker than the side that should attach to it, and tops and bottoms don't align.

Before digital cameras, you could scan prints or negatives into the computer, then use an image-editing program to improve the connections. But this required great skill and patience. Now, several photo-editing programs include an easy stitch function. Jasc After Shot™ allows you to drag several images into a stitch window (Figure 12.3), where the program will merge them for you. In our experience, however, automatic merges can be unsuccessful unless each image has a distinct object in it that the software can recognize to make the match (Figure 12.4).
