RESTITVTOR CRISPVS NOBILISSIMVS CAESAR


« on: February 15, 2003, 05:32:48 am »

OK, I'll admit ignorance once more here.  If I am running Adobe Photoshop Home edition and MGI Photostudio SE. The only way I seem to be able to stitch photos is by a cylindrical format or panoramic viewpoint.  

How, on this green earth, does one simply stitch a photo side by side with another one without marring, blending, or warping the two photos together.  All I have been trying to do is put obverse & reverse together, but I have to go through nine steps just to get them to appear even close to decent when stitching. Simply joining two photos together seems to be the most blastedly difficult task and it should be the easiest.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help as I now slip bark into the dark ages,

Ken

Open first image.
Press M to select the part you need.  ctrl+c (that copies it), ctrl+n (this creates a blank image)
select the size you wish, typically for a coin, double the value in there
ctrl+v (pastes the image over the blank one)
press V to select the move tool and place the image where ever u want

Open your second image, select it, copy. Get to the new image, paste it, move it where you want.  Press C if you wish to crop out soem bits of it. save.

Ignorance occurring again... I used the Photoshop Deluxe to stitch... but it only saves in PDF format.  Any way possible to save to jpeg?

Ken, FLATTEN the image (near the bottom of the LAYER option above) after you merge it.  Then you can save as a jpeg.

Joe: Thank you! Your explanation of posting pictures was VERY straight-forward & easy to understand. Would you please Grin do the same for "Stitching pictures" (showing obv. & rev. together)? I cannot, for the life of me, figure that out. Also, how do I reduce the size of my scans? I notice mine are huge in comparison to others.

Unfortunately, the specifics will depend upon the software that you use.  However, in general.  
1) Open both the obverse and reverse images in your software.
2) Crop them to get rid of the space around the coin.
3) Open a new blank file that is bigger than both images combined.
4) Copy the images from the obverse file and reverse file onto the new file and arrange them as desired.
5) Merge or flatten all images (your software may call this something different).
6) Crop the file to get rid of the excess space around the coins.
7) Resize the image to 300-450 pixels wide.
Cool Save.

I can't tell you exactly how to do each step above with your software, but you should be able to use the steps and your software's help function to figure it out.   If you identify your software, someone may be able to provide specific guidance for it.  Also, there may be there is an easier way to do it with your software than I stated above.

Better yet, use paint which cn be found in the acesories section under porgrams on the start menu, far simpler its just cut and paste (ot hack and slash.  Wink)

If you have MONETA there is a function on the Image page that lets you pick obverse or reverse alone or together in either horz. or vert. orientation. And it seems to reduce the file size too. It is a great tool I use it often.

I use iPhotoExpress.

Bring both images to your desktop.
Go to "edit" on your toolbar, choose the 8th option down "stitch".
Using your mouse, left click on one of the images and slide it into place next to the other.
Done. Grin

I have picassa and use it for storage but have not found a way to stitch pictures together. In my case anyhow I store my coin images in a windows picture format and use MS paint as a simple way to stitch together. For me it works fine and have not felt the need for anything else.

I recently downloaded the new picassa and found (which may not be new) that I can go in to collage and stitch together two picture. It is giving me much better results than paint, which I was not happy with.
