Question about Photo Impact 11...

  ade.h 14:57 09 Mar 2006

I'm trying to find a way - if it's do-able - to make a wide image from three photos next to each other, with a fade effect over the region where each photo meets the other. Hope my description makes sense.

Any thoughts folks? Thanks in advance.

I think you mean Panoramic Stitching.

I don't know if there are any free prgrams to do this but I use Ulead Cool 360 and it does the job admirably.

Free to try, $40 to buy.

what you would do is;

Open the images

On one of the menus, (I think "Edit"), you select "Stitch"

You then choose whether to have them join vertically or horizontally, and you can very the transparency of the join.

You might have to join 2 to make one new image, then join the third to that.

Sorry it's a bit vague... It's a while since I've done it, and I don't have it on my home PC now.

Hope this helps,

Try the early version of Panorama factory v1.6, it's still available as freeware.

PJ - No, I don't actually want a panorama. I have played around with Cool 360, but it doesn't do what I want.

It is difficult to describe accurately what I'm visualising, but it will be used for a website banner, about 850 x 130 pixels.

Simsy - your description sounds likely. I'll let you know how it works out.

hssutton - if it can't be done in PI 11, I won't worry too much about it. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Well Simsy's suggestion of stitching is sort of half way there, but doesn't have the desired effect. You can see a clearly defined section of overlap, rather than one image fading into the other.

I don't want to try any other software. I'll play around with a few other techniques and see what comes up.

Thanks again all. Will leave this open for a little while longer.
