Big Ben's Panorama Tutorials

Stitching A Panorama

In this section I will go through the process of stitching a spherical panorama from the scanned images through to the final colour/contrast corrected image. Each stage will include a little more complexity to the previous until the final panorama is completed.

This demonstration will assume that the lens parameters (v,a,b,c) have been previously calibrated, providing a good starting point. The accuracy of seams will be displayed by creating multi-layered PSD images without masks and setting the blending mode of the upper two layers to Difference

This will map the entire source images and display the overlapping regions as black IF they are perfectly aligned.  The closer the match between images, the blacker the overlapping regions will appear.

Let's start by having a close look at the source images and the circumstances under which they were acquired.
