Step D -- Re-crop each of the stitched images to slightly more than 360 degrees

The first three steps have put each row onto the same spherical coordinate system.  The central row is at the Equator and the upper and lower rows follow the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn (or higher or lower depending on the pitch axis).

In this fourth step, we re-crop each of the three individual rows to slightly more than 360 degrees.  This provides a little extra image at each end to allow for the row-to-row alignment.  In this example, we re-crop each row to 380 degrees.

  1. Right-click the thumbnail for the first cropped image and choose the Show source command from the Thumbnail image context menu.

  2. Select Horizontally symmetric on the Crop image dialog box and set Horizontal field of view to 380.

  3. Click Approve.

  4. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 for each cropped image.

Advance to Step E -- Resize all three cropped images to the same width

Back to Step C -- Stitch the lower row
