i have heard algorithms exist such that a panoramic scene can be photographed as several pics and the software will automagically determine the locations, edges, etc. of the photos and splice them into a single image.
is there such a plugin for the gimp ?
None in the official distribution. There is a set of tools and plug-ins called pandora available from the plug-in registry http://registry.gimp.org and I seem to recall panotools for gimp too - yup, found it: http://www.vierpi.de/panotools-gimp.html it doesn't appear to have been updated for 2.x.
However I found a whole mailing list which is *very* active on panotools frontends - http://www.email-lists.org/mailman/listinfo/ptx
There are many such programs mentioned on that list, among them
The home page for Panorama tools is
There's a forum for panotools on yahoo: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PanoTools/
Here's the home page for the Pandora plug-in: http://shallowsky.com/software/pandora/
And for the enblend program: http://enblend.sourceforge.net/
And finally autostitch: http://user.cs.tu-berlin.de/~nowozin/autopano-sift/
Hopefully in all that there's something worthwhile.
Thanks everyone for your information. I should have provided you with more details on what I am doing. I have hugin running however it does not appear to be the optimal tool for this task.
I have a book, printed in 1945 or so, and it is of a very odd size, large, with a lot of photos and text. My flatbed scanner can only scan about 2/3 of a page. So I end up with multiple images for each single page, and would like to combine them into one page.
So far I have tried hugin twice on image sets, and although it runs, I can't seem to figure out how to turn the lens function off. I don't want any distoration because these are pages out of a book.
Before moving to the other list, I thought I would ask again with more info. This is the first time I've tried to do something like this.
