Creating a gigapixel collage - 2025 photos - not to be sticthed

by parisbyphoto » Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:42 pm

Hi,

I need to create a 45 x 45 collage - which will be around 175000 pixels in total, so looking for some software that supports creating collages in grid format and outputs to Photoshop large doc format. Does anyone know if it is possible to use autopano giga for this?

Key here is that it is not a stitched image i want, just support for placing the photos in a set grid size with 0% overlapp - no stitching required.

It would be great if I could do this in autopano giga, if not, if anyone knows of any other software, please let me know.

Thanks,
D

I made a little experiment and it didn't work.

I think the asnwer is probably that it cannot be done with APG.

Years ago i had a photo-mosaic software called "2gether1" on my Mac. Don´t know whether it still exists.
Took thousands of shots and made them 1 very big picture.

best, Klaus

have a look here:

But: can´t Photoshop do it anyway?

A bit of tinkering with import wizards and a 10000 mm lens settings should make it possible. Just for fun I am willing to give it a try. If you can dropbox the files to me I will try it for free.

InDesign ??

A page layout program would be able to let you do this, if you can do it automatic, that's another question - but if you are good at scripting then yes its possible

It is certainly doable through autopano with some scripting:
- suppose we have 10000mm focal length
- with some of the papywizard generator available in the forum, generate the 45x45 grid you need by saying : no overlap ( 0% )
- use papywizard plugin with the images ( uncheck optimization, not needed ).

Should work but never tested :)

What do you have in mind precisely:
using existent photographs for making the grid (that´s what i understood) or do you want to shoot the images to make them aligned on a grid?
