Brenzier method - anyway to compile pictures in PSE ?

posted April 17th, 2018
HI, I was just wondering if anyone knew of a free site that I could use on-line to stitch pictures together please? or have any suggestions on how I could do this... I only have PS elements and I have tried to knit 4 pics - 2 up and 2 down but photomerge will only merge one line of pics together - I tried with several different pics and made sure there was a good overlap. All my searches have failed to find anything on line so thought I would ask here on the off chance really. Thanks.

there was a challenge about this a while back https://365project.org/discuss/themes-competitions/26572/new-technique-challenge-48-breznier just in case there is any info or examples you could use, been a while, i did try it but i have photoshop. did you try merging each line and then merging those together?

Thanks for our help and the link @kali66 I doubt ps elements will merge the lines together but I will give it a go anyway.

I use Photoshop mainly. But that's also because I like it if you see the stitch in the frames for example. Sorry, I was looking for an example but the are all in closed albums because I'm not an ace at the moment. I shoot photo's with that in mind so there is enough overlap and less distortion due to perspective issues. Then I make 2 layers and place both (or more) photo's on top of each other. By making them half transparent you can see what you are doing. Sometime I use the distortion tool to make both image fit more on the overlap. You have to make sure the overlap zone fits as good as posible. Then set the transparency to 0 (no transparency) and use a wide soft edge eraser (smaller in size than the overlap zone) to make both images to look like one.

I tried some stitching software for Mac but I was never pleased with the results. Some are hard to understand and if you don't exactly know what all settings do it's you trial and error. Some are easy to use but with poor results. Some only have panorama option.
I think I tried Hugin. Not an easy program but ok results.
There are many option but not many are free: https://beebom.com/photo-stitching-software/ https://lordlibidan.com/best-cross-stitch-pattern-software/

I use ICE (Image Composite Editor), it's freeware from Microsoft. I'm very happy with the results for all kind of panoramas.
