Photo Paint X3 (Stitching)

Postby mtxmike » Sat Mar 01, 2008 3:57 am

I'm having trouble with "Stitching". When I open 2 images for Stitching, and then open the Source Files, I only get 1 file to add the "Selected Files" instead of 2. The instructions don't cover how to get multiple files to select from when the "Select Files" dialog box opens.

Can anyone help me, and tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Here is my method for handling "stitching" in PSPX3.

1. Open the two images to be joined.
2. Window>Name of one of the files. Copy that image to clipboard. Note the width of the image.
3. Window>Name of the other file. Image>Add borders. Add a border of the amount of the width of the other image to left or right side.
4. Ctrl+E for Past As Selection.
5. Line up the two edges by using the Move and Zoom tools on the floating selection
6. Merge the floating selection with the background layer
7. Use the Scratch Remover tool to cleanup the seam.

If the two images overlap, I tend to use PS Elements 7 instead, because it has a panorama tool that handles this kind of job much more efficiently.

Hope this helps.
