    So we had this little Supercell in out area recently and I went out to take some pictures and create a panorama of it. The original is about 10,000 pixels wide, but i resized it and put it in a .rar . I was hoping you could help me making a proper, clean panorama out of it, as i am struggling a bit. Here is a link to a mediafire file. I promise you it will only include an .xcf file of the photos already arranged but not quiet lined up yet. If you are up for the challenge et me know. Also, I found out, since they are somewhat dark, it helps to create a white layer on top and put it to "overlay". Since it is a big image, some Computers may no be able to run it and freeze. So if you dont have a quad core and >4Gb RAM you might not wanna try it :)

    Thank you in advance!

    If you zip ONLY the images in a folder i will give it a go.
    I don't want a xcf file that huge.

    here's something to consider. hugin is the right tool for this. gimp is great and i'll never stop using it but i do use the right tool for the job. hugin is a free pano tool and easy to use.

    welcome back istar, well I found hugin last week as well. coincidentaly i also found another PS CS4 Demo CD that day. I tried both, and while both programs seem to have trouble at times to keep the perspective aligned, I would argue photoshop makes it easier to correct them since it uses layer masks and doe not merge the image to one layer. Hugin on the other hand, always ends up giving a single image as result, whereas with Photoshop I sometimes end up with 2 or 3 small panoramas, not stiched together to form a single image. Either way, the scripts of both rpograms make it a lot easier than having to do it by hand.

    Microsoft Image Composite Editor or ICE works nice in Windows also.
