Create a mosaic automatically
1. Take your photographs as described earlier. Now launch AutoStitch and select Edit, Options. Specify a suitable width and height for your final image as before. Under Scale, enter a percentage that takes into account the combined dimensions of the individual images. Click ok.
2. Go to File, Open, browse to the images you want to stitch together and click Open. You can import multiple photographs by holding down Ctrl as you select a file - this causes that file to be added to the files already selected. Alternatively, pressing Shift allows you to select a group of consecutive files.
3. AutoStitch will immediately begin stitching the files together - you need to kick-start the process manually only if you want to create another mosaic from the same files after changing the options. AutoStitch will then display the finished mosaic.
4. AutoStitch will save the final image as a file called Pano, in the same folder as the individual photos. Rename this file to prevent it getting overwritten next time you use AutoStitch. Finally, use your photo editor to crop the mosaic to a regular shape.
