Google "enblend."

You can also try Calico.

This is 6 images around and one up, perfectly blended with enblend.

Yikes, not much of a designer here - but hopefuly BV or Lau will answer - they are both truly talented.

There is a guide to doing panoramas in photoshop manually
In this thread (down the bottom)


I find that with the gradient blending mehtod, the colours blend pretty well, I guess it doesn't solve the root problem of different colours though, what camera are you using? you could try locking the exposure settings in future.

Not sure without being in front of my Mac at home, but I think Enblend requires TIFF.
Yes it said something about that in the error log, looks like enblend is out of the picture:D

When shooting panos, I always make sure I overlap my images by at least 33%. My point and shoot even has a tic-tac-toe board overlay that i use to help. :)

Another tip: never use automatic anything for Pano. photos. ALWAYS have the camera in full manual so that the exposure doesn't change as you move the camera.

Heh. Yeah, I'm learning that even after shooting pano's for almost two years.

forgive me if I hijack this thread... I shoot in manual, but have had White Balance set to Auto on my D70s. As I become more experienced, I also become more critical of my own work. Dealing with pink and blue digital images is starting to piss me off :cool: Time to get back in to learning mode. I may have to bite the bullet and start shooting in RAW at the expense of time added to my pano work flow.

I always wondered how you were so efficient - actually impressed and amazed. I always end up shooting in RAW because Hans, Eric and the other gurus beat it into me, but then ai did a few houses in jpg. I was hell, this is so fracking quick. :D

Then, yeah, the realization came in.

I shhot in AV at f9.0 (because I don't have as nice a lense as Cooknn) and usually dial in at .5 focus. That usualy worked, but jpg just doesn't work for me usually - and Cooknn is right, the more you do it, the more flaws you find.
