Remember the story about teaching a guy to fish as opposed to giving him fish? What not ask 'how' to do it Charles? That way you can stitch your pictures anytime you want, night or day!

thanks everybody. i've got somebody on teh project, and will be sure to post when it's completed.

as to fishing....i don't really like fishing, it's a bit boring. without the sarcasm, my picture editor is a trial version and i'm restricted from doing many functions. but i have been enjoying taking photos and editing lately, so i should probably go out and get a good program. anyb suggestions as to a good picture editor?

Photoshop CS2 is pricey for average users (which I am), so I bought Photoshop elements, which I got in a bundle with Premier elements (video editor) for $100 bones a couple of years ago. The price has gone up, but you can still get a good deal on Photoshop elements by itself for ~$60 with rebate. It can't do everything that the 'big boys' can, but for hundreds less, it does everything I need.

did you actually do the back 5...the way its shopped makes it look like its a few things thrown together, the water color around boots on the landing....and how much board is shown on the first frame....maybe its just me

You can use a free program that is distributed under GNU called GIMP. just google it. Its similar to Photoshop, just not as easy to use. Still feature packed.

Is it difficult to learn how to stich photos?

I have photoshop and never even knew you could do it until I saw it on this website.

Are their any websites with instructions?

Good work..

Thanks man, the landing is a little sloppy but I love that shot. Mainly cause its so big off the wake, no dub there, all xstar wake!

Kelly, here is a tutorial that I learned with, but had to modify seeing as wakeboarding is not a static image. Basically, I pull two pictures into the 'working area' and change the opacity on picture 1 (which will be called 'Layer 1'). I line them up, and then 'erase' the part of the picture that is covering up my rider. I then pull in picture 3 (layer 3), lower the opacity to see through it, line it up...then erase any of the picture that is covering up 'rider'. Repeat until all pictures are done, then 'Flatten image' and you should have it. Of course, its not quite that simple to 'do', it took me >1 hour to do my first sequence. Now I can do it in about 30 minutes (which I think is still a long time, but it gets the job done).

Thanks alot...

I have not had a chance to read the article you sent, does it explain how to erase the part of the picture that is covering up the rider?

I do greatly appreciate your time to explain it..

It is not difficult once you figure out the system. I use a layer for each photo piece I am stitching in to help align easier. Then I use the eraser at a full hardness to cut out what I don't need and then I use a lighter one with spaces to try to blend. They don't always come out good.

The real trick is to have the camera person not use an automatic mode that might change exposure, ISO setting, white balance and other stuff because it makes stitching really hard when you need to color correct each picture to a different level.

Here's the other one you wanted:
This one was a little harder as the camera person or camera changed the picture a bit on me. Things didn't line up well, I'm used to doing these where the picture was from the boat and there's very little difference in the background. These were more challenging for me, sorry it's not as nice looking...but here it is.

the last one in this sequence was the killer one for me. The exposure and lighting are different and I didn't take enough time to get it to match. You can see his helmet, vest, skin, rope/handle are all different tones, it is most noticed in the water coloring though. I didn't get it to match exactly, so....there it is.
