Meet the GIMP #19: Paaanoooraaamaaa! and a Challenge for You!

Joseph, also known as BlueMojo, has made a screenrecording about the panorama software Hugin. And of course I had to try it too!

I installed Hugin on Ubuntu 7.10 - I'll post some quirks I had to circumvert later. Then I went out on to my street and shot a series while I turned 360. I followed Josep's advice and set exposure, white balance and focus to manual.

Here are some links for you to explore:

  • The files from Joseph and me for download are linked in the next post. There is a feed problem.
  • The Hugin project homepage.
  • Wikipedia entry about panoramas with some excellent examples. Including the chinese drawing from the show.
  • A blog entry about shooting panoramas on a site about linux and photography. The blog is worth to explore and there is more to come.
  • Edit: A tutorial about Hugin on the same site.
  • A list of all the Lottofeen in the German TV.
