Stitching a Panoramic Image


In lecture today, we discussed panoramic photography and stitching software. In this exercise, you will use Photoshop or Hugin to stitch together a series of images to make a panorama.

Part 1:

  • Using either the panoramic images you shot in Exercise 2.1 or the images shot during the Hour by Arrangement, follow Digital Life Tutorial 0.14 or Photoshop Tutorial 1.7 to stitch the images together. You may use either method to stitch your images. As the number of images you try to stitch increases, you will have better results with Hugin (Digital Life Tutorial 0.14)
  • Perform adjustments as necessary (B&W, Curves, Levels, Pop, etc.) in Photoshop
  • Save the file (Photoshop Tutorial 1.6) by first adjusting the image size to have a width of 2048 px (Image>Image Size…), then use the File>Save For Web & Devices… menu item to save your file.

Part 2:

  • Post your resulting image to the web. You will create two versions in your post, one will be an interactive panorama and the other will be the flat image from Hugin or Photoshop.
  • Begin by creating a new post. Select the “Add an Image” button and upload your new panorama. Copy the link to the image (you will need this for the next step) and click “Insert into Post.”
  • Now at the top of the body of your post, Type: This will create the interactive panorama of your image.
  • Be sure to include your full name followed by “Exercise 2.4” in the title as well as in the tag field.

Part 3:

  • With any remaining time, please work on Assignment 1. Remember: Assignment 1 is due on Thursday 9/8!
