Stitching Panoramic Images - PhotoStitch

If you have several images of the same scene with only a slight difference, you can use PhotoStitch to connect the images together to make a panoramic image. This section describes how to use this program to stitch images.

REFERENCE

○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

• For detailed information on how to use PhotoStitch, refer to the

PhotoStitch Help (accessible from the [Help] menu).

• You can stitch images together more readily if they have been recorded using the camera’s Stitch Assist mode because

PhotoStitch can automatically detect the image order and merge direction. Some cameras may not feature the Stitch Assist mode.

3.

Follow the instructions on the upper part of the

PhotoStitch window.

Decide the order in which the images should be stitched.

Opening PhotoStitch

Supported Image Types

The following is a list of image types supported by ImageBrowser.

Readable Image Types

ImageBrowser can read the following image types.

JPEG

Most cameras use this image type. It compresses at very high ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method

(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may become rougher.

Exif JPEG is an image type that adds information such as shooting data to a JPEG image.

RAW

This is a proprietary image type provided by Canon. It allows the output of the image pixels from a digital camera without any deterioration in the quality of the image. Some cameras might not support this image type.

PICT

This is the standard image type for Macintosh. This image type is supported by most Macintosh software.

TIFF

This is a relatively popular image type. It is widely supported by non-Macintosh programs (such as Windows).

Windows Bitmap

This image type comes standard with Windows. Most Windows programs support it.

QuickTime/AVI

These are movies, which display as a movie icon in the Browser

Area of ImageBrowser.

Thumbnail Cache Dialog

When you select a folder from a peripheral, such as a CD-ROM or CD-R, in the Explorer Panel Section, ImageBrowser creates a file in a predetermined folder for the thumbnail displayed in the

Browser Area.

However, when viewing a CD-ROM or a CD-R containing a large number of files, the number of thumbnails also increases, resulting in less free hard disk space on your computer. In this case, you can use this dialog to delete unnecessary thumbnails

(thumbnails for files on a CD-ROM or a CD-R that you have already looked at and probably will not look at again).

To delete the thumbnails, click the appropriate disk name in this dialog. The thumbnails for that particular disk are deleted. (The thumbnails are not actually deleted until the next time you start

ImageBrowser.)

If a rotated image is opened in a program that does not support rotated display, it will appear in its prerotation state. You can have the image data itself rotated when it is downloaded from the camera by changing the setting for

[Processing When Rotating]. You can rotate and save movies by clicking the [Edit] menu and using the [Edit Movies] submenu.

Place a check mark here to convert image data to the vertical orientation while downloading images shot with the camera on end.

– Click the [File] menu in the Camera Control Window and place a check mark beside [Start When a Camera is

Connected].

– In Image Capture’s [Preferences] menu, specify

[CameraWindow] in the [Application to open when a camera is connected] section.

When ImageBrowser does not start even though you have enabled communication, or when you try to import images from the camera and the “Camera not detected” message or a similar message appears, check the following, in that order.

Check Your Computer
