Could one of you Photoshop gurus point me towards a site where the nitpicky details on how to take 10 shots of a boarder doing a trick, and then link them all in 1 big sequence shot (like in the higher learning section of WBM) Everyone always says stuff like, "It's really easy, just take some time in photoshop." I have no tech background with this stuff, just hours of time dinking around...and so far, nothing is quick and easy. I can put 3 pics together easily enough, but when the rider overlaps a previous shot...well life gets difficult quickly. <BR> <BR>Thanks for any help.

i dont know any links off the top of my head, but i'm pretty sure there has been a thread or two before that will give a better explination than me, you might try a search <BR> <BR>i'll try to give you the basics of it though...create a new blank layer that is about twice as wide and a little taller than your pics. take all the pictures that you are using, each a different layer, and get all their backrounds lined up evenly.(might take a little rotating and shifting) just use the opacity so you can see the overlapping images to get them even. Then you basically just have to erase on the top layer so the rider shows through from the layer underneath. you might find it easier to work with two images at a time and then just add one image at a time using the same process. i'm sure someone will give a better explination but i hope this helps until then <BR> <BR>

Did a quick search and found some tutorials. Once you get the hang of it is really fun but time consuming. <BR> <BR>http://webdesign.templatemonster.com/web/photoshop/photo-editing/manual-stitching.5298.html <BR> <BR>ONly for PS CS http://phong.com/tutorials/photostitch/ <BR> <BR>Here are a few I stitched together; <BR><a href="http://home.comcast.net/~slmg/sequence2.jpg" target="_blank">http://home.comcast.net/~slmg/sequence2.jpg</a> <BR><a href="http://home.comcast.net/~slmg/sequence3_uncut.jpg" target="_blank">http://home.comcast.net/~slmg/sequence3_uncut.jpg</a> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Pierce Bronkite on September 10, 2005)
