  • Auto image align software?

    I loathe tripods. It's not that I don't recognize their value, I just find lugging them around hinders my creative process. But I do like to bracket my exposures, which is fine if you find one of the bracketed exposures is better than the rest, but not so much if you want to combine them into one image (unless you use beforementioned tripod).

    So, has anyone come across any good auto-alignment software that can align widely bracketed yet untripodded images? Photomerge in Photoshop can't hack it, it's not what it was designed for.

    My guess is that one of the exposures would have to be designated the target, and the rest would have to be warped to fit.

      There was a discussion a number of months ago that discussed a plugin used for image exposure alignment. This is something I wanted to come back to, but I forgot the site or the program that was discussed. I think it began with an "A", but then again...I also remember someone wrote in discussing how someone achieve a certain was of house or stores in a town and this is how the thread began. Does anyone remember? thanks...

              Why is OpenSource software so ugly?
              by Doug Nelson
              I had to use gparted to install Vista this weekend, and I was reminded of my primary objection to Linux: all the interfaces and apps are ugly. Mishmashed fonts, ill-fitting UI features, and no concious attempt at any sort of unified standard.

              Even the apps offered as counter-examples...

              I used to have free software that could batch rename and move pictures into new folders according to the exif data date, but I replaced my motherboard and have consequently lost it. Nor do I remember the name. Does anyone know what I may be talking about or know of anything similar?

              Not sure where to go to ask this so am starting here. I am interested in doing a morph from one image to another. on web search, i found "Fantamorph".

              Does anyone have any feedback about Fantamorph? Or, are there other software programs available for this?
