  • Help and Advise Needed

    Dear All
    I have a few questions I need help with and I hope the members of the forum can add their expertise,
    I am photographing holiday cabins and I would like to add some panoramic interiors which can be added to their web site.Please could you advise the corrrect softwear to use?
    I have Adode CS3 will this be adequate for stitching the shots together,or would I be better off purchasing PTQui as it seems to be highly recommended on the web?
    Finally,could the members recommend any books or tutorials as I would like to add another string to my bow with the addition of panoramic interiors,as I am excited at the prospect of Nodal Ninja improving my business
    acumen.....Many thanks Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I use PTGui for stitching, Photoshop for changing single fotos or to take away the tripod on the nadir. You can download a trial version and you find a lot of tutorials on the website.

    If you like something more automaticallly, you can try a trial version of autopanogiga with a lot of tutorial as well.

    Try and find out what you prefer on yourself.

        you are welcome,

        and feel free to ask more questions. I am shure you will get an answer to a problem on the forum. It is a quick turn around from people who offer their knowledge for free, to get newbies going without secondary problems with a very good product.

          I have been looking at quite a few software programes,becoming quite punch drunk.I think I will go with Autopano Pro,there is a special offer on at the moment which includes a video tutorial DVD.I would be interested to know if anyone has viewed it and could give a quick review.I have been impressed by the versitility of this programe,but if anyone has any alternative suggestions I would be most grateful.Paul

            Hi Paul,

            the DVD gives you an overview of panoramafotografie, which is explained within the software itself and with videos taken outside in a french village. The author tells something on how to setup your hardware, take your panos and what might be the difficulties in this place with high dynamic range.

            I will try to let you see a screenshot of the dvd's index tonight. He is working the manfrotto panohead, i am quite sure you will be glad to have a NN one when you have seen it. In the beginning i worked with manfrotto as well. Now i am glad to have a nodal ninja.

            Having baught the combi APG with DVD, i was a little disappointed about the dvd. But it is not bad.
