I would like have some tips for virtual tour workflow.

I do:

1) shoot in NEF (i have a nikon)
2) develop in Tiff (8bit - lzw) (with Lightroom)
3) stitching panorama in Tiff (8bit - lzw) (with Ptgui)
4) simple modifications of panoramas like blur faces and numbers plates in Photoshop
5) save modified panoramas in Jpeg max quality (in Photoshop)
6) virtual tour creation with Panotour Pro2 jpeg quality 9

Is this a good workflow?
What is the right workflow to have good quality virtual tour?

thanks anyone! :-)

Pretty much my workflow. #4 I would also add in a sharpening step of the image. Key part I see is at the capture stage when shooting as this I feel determines your quality going forward through into the above workflow.

Thank You UKPano!

I do the sharpening step directly in Lightroom on the single shoot; then i apply the sharpening values to the other images of the stage point with the syncronization fuction.

Isn't this way the same than apply the sharpening in photoshop?

No - you´re doing right i mean. It´s a better way doing sharpening in the RAW processing.

Sharpening after stitching means that you might also sharpen hardly visible artefacts caused by stitching and make them more visible.
This way you might amplify "glitter"-effects in panning the pano.

So i prefer sharpening the images before stitching and not to sharpen the rendering.

best, Klaus

Thanks Klaus as that is something that I've now learn't myself and makes sense when you think about it.

This is why the forum can be helpful to teach old dogs new tricks!
