hello amazing artists there,
am facing problems while 'stitching' the panaromic photos that i shot. basically, Phtoshop's File>Automate>Photomerge and Edit>Auto Align/Blend Layers works good, but FAIL on the LENS DISTORTION.
i had tried to correct it with Filter>Lens Correction, but still not getting perfect result.
Please see the attached image for the results, were you can see the building looks bent. Please check/download the source images from http://www.prashanthvfx.com/130330_adobe_stitch.html.
Merge the layers Photomerge puts out, then choose Filter - Adaptive Wide Angle from the menus.
There are videos on how to do it floating around, but basically you draw lines along curved parts you want to be straight, then you can manipulate them.
It will start out de-distorting the image some by itself as I recall.
I've only dabbled with it a few times, but I recall really straightening out a pano of the Snake River Gorge bridge in Twin Falls.
I only had access to cs5 at the moment, so the adaptive wide angle would well be worth a try.
Anyway in cs5 i used File>Automate>Photomerge>Perspective and then a combination of Lens Correction and some old fashion adjustments using free transform. (distort. perspective, etc)
It's still quite rough.
thanks for your answers. i tried it, but not satisfied with the results.
basically, after merging all the images, opened the image under 'Adaptive Wide Angle' and started drawing straight lines, after which Photoshop started to straighten the image. But there seems to be some portion of image were it goes zigzag.
please see the attached snapshots. Am i doing wrong?
I think that if you follow the concepts in this video, you should be able to get good results using Adaptive Wide Angle.
(Russell Brown explains things far better than i can)
Anyway, i started by using the settings below in File>Automate>Photomerge and then when the merge was complete, i did Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E (Shift+Cmd+Option+E on a mac)
to merge the layers into a new layer for the adaptive wide angle. (Layer 1)
After using some of the same techniques shown in the video:
