The Big Picture: Panorama 360 Photo Stitching

Jan 24th, 2018

When you are at a beautiful location, away from the hustle-bustle of the city life, many people regret not being able to capture a memory, or not able to take in the entire landscape to add it to their collection. This may be because the scenery was very wide or had a very tall field of view. Though newer version of smart phones boosts having Panorama View, the person who captures these memories has no control over the outcome of the picture. We have seen cases of Panorama went wrong with people having four hands and even more faces! This is because in such software, a series of individual pictures are taken and merely overlapped to give the feel of a larger image!

With Panorama 360 Photo Stitching, just as the name suggests, you are assured to get a 360 degree of your view.

What is Photo stitching?

It is the process in which multiple photographs with overlapping field of view are digitally ‘stitched’ to produce a single image of high resolution.

A few techniques used for Photo Stitching are:

  • Fixing seams: Since stitching obviously means bringing two pieces together, factors like light and distortion often cause visible seams in an image. Hence fixing a seam line between two different images is the 1st step towards getting a perfectly stitched image.

  • Light alignment:Even if the individual images were taken simultaneously, there are chances that the lighting in one image can differ from the other depending on the angle from which the picture was taken, to get a perfect Panorama, it is necessary to smoothen out these mismatches and deliver an even toned photo.

  • Width/ Height Ratio: Another important factor of photo stitching is the alignment of the width and height ratio of the images put together. A mismatch in either one of these factors will create an unpleasant final visual display.

  • Image calibration: Image calibration helps to minimize the differences caused by various factors such as distortions,over exposure between different pictures or vignette.

  • Image blending : This technique is useful to reduce the intensity difference at overlapping points in a picture. Images are blended with the help of color adjustment between images.

Though there are a number of Photo Stitching Apps in the market like Snapseed, Pano, etc. without the expertise of a professional, many factors like the one’s mentioned above may cause your picture to be ruined, if not end up with your picture having multiple unwanted body parts! With an expert, you can stay assured to have the perfect blending of pictures, colors and landmarks with a 360 degree view of the entire landscape, may it be a mountain peak or that vacation condo you wish to promote on a popular site!
