Picture of How to Stitch your Panorama Photos with Paint
Untitled picture.png
In this Instructable, I will show you an easy way to stitch your panorama photos together with a program that came with your computer! Paint is a highly useful, yet extremely simple tool if you know how to use it. Let's begin.

Step 1: Take the Shot

Now this will be the hardest part. If you can't take the picture evenly, then the whole process will be a waste. Take your time with it and look up your settings on your camera, there should be some sort of panorama view helper. Be sure to invest in a good quality camera and tripod for these situations.

A note when taking a picture: if possible, make sure that your brightness is the same for every picture, or you will have to edit it later!

Thank you very much. I used to have stitch programs, but this is so much easier!

thanks for this solution.
*can see the obvious seam*
I use a Canon camera and with it is a CD with a stitch program. Once you download the pictures using the camera, the program automatically comes in and you just click it and it. I also use Picasa 3 to do some work on the pictures when it is in the computer prior to getting the Canon program to work.. My only problem comes when it has people in the series of pictures. The one located in the seem area who moved during the shoot maybe distorted but that does not pose a problem when it is just a still life or a view picture.

wow, you really should use something like gimp, that way you can fade from one image to the next, because now there is a seam, and you can't create 360x180 panoramas

No, you should use something like panotools or autostitch that can actually do projection remapping. In this example you managed to fake it by just translating the images, but with most real scenes it won't work nearly as well. The optical physics in the lens just don't work that way. There might be a few tasks where Paint's advantage of being pre-installed on most computers outweighs its limitations compared to other tools that you have to download, but this isn't one of them.

This was just a way that you could use so you don't have to download anything. I'm sure if you spent a little more time on it than I did, you could get rid of the seam pretty easily with the spray can, or just aligning it better.
