The photos shown
at the URL were taken by my HP Photosmart camera, an R507, not the Olympus
model provided by the school -
When I downloaded the pictures from the Oyster Point and Cayuga Park field trips to my computer, the HP software automatically stitched together images with a commonality to form a single panoramic image. The images stitched had been taken in the "panorama mode".
I want to stress to digital photographers the ease with which these panoramas were automatically created. All I had to do was (1) take the pictures with the panorama mode, (2) capture a portion of the previous image in the "next" view, and (3) keep the camera level. Once I started downloading the images from my camera to the computer, the HP software took over! To put it even more clearly, short of shutting it off, there was nothing I could do to stop the computer from creating a panorama!
Once again, the
amazing thing about the HP software is that I didn't have to pre-select
the images. It detected which photos were taken in panoramic mode and
it put together panoramas without asking! It even assigned a suffix
"P" to the generated ID number of the first photo in the series
and labeled the panorama as such.
One of the panoramas was very interesting in that it detected the sky with a fog layer and matched that part of the image rather than the earth bound objects. See Photo F.
I attempted some vertical panorama shots, but there was more horizontal than vertical in the images selected. The answer is to select appropriate vertical subjects for shooting. Nonetheless, there were some interesting results. See Photos I and J.
