    An image size issue

    I recently took 6 portrait photos with my EOS 5D MK IV and assigned Panoramic Factory software to stitch them. I got a response that the images are not the same size. I checked them and they were within +/-3 pixels. I corrected the sizes in mm to be the same but the sizes in pixels remained unchanged. The software still refuses to accept them. I have made many panoramas, but this is the first time I have such an issue. Any idea of how this occurred and whether there is a way to correct pixel counts? Thanks.

    That brings back memories - I used to use Panorama Factory a long time ago. I see I still have v5.3 installed, I'd quite forgotten. If it's not a 360 panorama I'd be inclined to throw them into Microsoft's Free Image Compositing Editor, if you have Windows...

      Thank you for your response, DrJon. It is true that P/F has its limitations, although, for my needs, it usually is good enough. However, I would gladly use a better software if available at a reasonable price. I checked the page you suggested but have found no pricing information. Could it be free-of-charge? Besides, I am not sure whether it is a "free-standing" programme or a Photoshop plug-in. I am using Photoshop Elements 19 and if it requires full PS I would be unable to use it.

      As regards my problem with picture sizes, I found a solution on the web: When converting (and saving) from RAW to TIFF or JPG on DPP, there is a choice of final file sizes, both in single- and batch conversion. It seems that processing on DPP can introduce image size chnages of a few pixels (2-3 pixels in my case). My current most annoying problem with P/F is the distortion of nearby objects; straight lines become curved!

      I appreciate your response.

        I agree for a free piece of software Microsoft ICE is great for stitching panoramas.
        Prior to Adobe Lightroom stitching algorithm improvements, I would always use ICE for a series that Lightroom couldn’t handle.

          ICE is free and stand-alone. It seemed a simple solution from where you were.

          I wasn't being rude about Panorama Factory, I got a lot of good use out of it. I personally use PtGui Pro for serious Panoramas these days, but ICE is handy for quick flat Panoramas (vs 360) and usually smart enough to just leave it to it. I'd suggest giving it a go, as for some things it might be a lot faster (from what I remember of PF).

            Sincere thanks for the information DrJon. (I don't check this site very often.), I will download ICE. Hope it handles TIFF files.
