Post Scanning & stitching large photos

Most consumer scanners will only scan letter size documents in a single pass. Sometimes, however, you might need to scan larger items. This can be done by scanning the item in sections and combining the scanned images in any image editing program that supports layers. [details]

Thank you *very* much for this tutorial!

I only had to do it a couple of times .... and, in theory, I should have known how to do it (Katrin Eismann's Book) .... but it was never really explained as clearly and with so many vital details as in your Tutorial!!!

I always had some problem in 'aligning' different parts of a picture even after copying and pasting parts in a 'normal' sized picture .... soooo .... Thanks again!!

This really is a model tutorial - a clear explanation of what to do as when, backed up by some very effective screenshots. Many thanks for taking the time to put it together - I'm sure it will be of use to a lot of our members!

Exactly what I was looking for! I had to scan and blend a 10in X 27.5in rolled up class photograph. Thanks to your article, I was able to get it all together.

Thanks for taking the time, well done!

I recently scanned four 16X20 prints and merged the four separate parts using Photomerge in Photoshop CS. It was amazing and a huge time saver. I could not detect any seams, lines or anomalies in the merged print. Anyone else had this experience?
