Step E -- Rotate the fully stitched image
90 degrees counter-clockwise
In this step, we rotate the fully stitched image back to its correct
NOTE: It is probably best to make manual
adjustments to the stitched row images and the fully stitched image before
starting this step. If you see ghosts (faint double images), you can
often correct them using the
Fine tune command (Image menu) and/or with
manual fine tuning. For more information, refer to the section "Fine
tuning the image alignment" in Chapter 6 of the online help, "Correcting
stitching problems". Sometimes ghost images cannot be eliminated
with fine tuning, for example if an object (e.g. person or car) moved
between the times you made two photographs. You can sometimes remove
these ghosts by adjusting the boundaries of the blending region. For
more information, refer to the section
Adjust blending region boundaries in Chapter 4 of the online help, "Using
the Classic interface, step by step".
Double-click thumbnail of the fully stitched
image to make it the current image shown in the lower pane.
NOTE: You'll also see a cropped thumbnail in the upper pane,
but we don't want to use this image. The Wizard always crops the
stitched image, but sometimes the cropping can introduce a small amount of
image rotation. This is usually the right thing in normal stitching
(and, in fact, for the initial row stitches) because it corrects for small
rotations that are left over after stitching. However, in this
multi-row procedure, we want to avoid any new rotation after the initial
