Trouble report 691

Sometimes exported images are sharpened even if you have turned off sharpening

Versions affected

4.0 - 4.4

Description

Depending upon the options you select on the Save image as dialog box, The Panorama Factory sometimes has to resize your image as part of the export process.  When this automatic resizing happens, The Panorama Factory sharpens the image even if you have turned off sharpening in the Wizard or with menu commands.

Images may be resized during image export if you select Automatically resize or if select an export format that has size constraints. For example, QTVR images are almost always resized during export because QTVR images must be a multiple of 96 pixels in width.

Workaround

To avoid sharpening during image export, do all required resizing before exporting the image and do not select Automatically resize on the Save image as dialog box.  If you are exporting to QTVR format, be sure to resize the image to a multiple of 96 pixels in width before exporting.  You can resize to a multiple of 96 pixels by entering a value for Image width on the Create your panorama Wizard step or by using the Resize command (New image menu).

Status

Corrected in V4.5.
