View Full Version : Help making sequence picture
05-05-2002, 07:44 PM
I am an amateur Alaskan photographer and I have always wanted to use the continuous shooting mode to make an action sequence shot like the ones found in skiing magazines. I am shooting with my Canon PowerShot S40 and am editing with Photoshop 6.0. Any help on how to merge multiple images into one using Photoshop would greatly appreciated. /ibb/skins/default/emoticons/confused.gif

PS Elements has a "stitching" tool. PS6 doesn't. <BR>
However there's a great free plug-in for PS that may be just what you're looking for:<BR>

Also, Panorama Factory is a $35 shareware program:<BR>

Hope this helps.

Perhaps I was unclear of the type of editing effect I was looking for. Examples of sequence shots can be found here: <BR>

I have a feeling that layers may be the key to producing this shot.

Take a look at the tips section of <A HREF=http://www.wacom.com/popularphotofun/index.cfm" TARGET='_blank'>http://www.wacom.com/popularphotofun/index.cfm</A><BR>
The fish and pogo girl use pretty much the same idea.....if I understand what your wanting to do.<BR>
Hope it helps.

I have some nice sequence shots from a ski competition when I was living in Fernie this winter and I am going to eventually get them all scanned. I think the only way would be to put all the images on top of each other (dif layers) and then create masks around each sequence of the trick. Or if you can take slices of each image and piece them together that might work. <BR>
I have emailed the editors at freeze and free skier and did not get a reply.<BR>

Masking in Photoshop is not the ideal way to do this. It would be time consuming especially if there is small variation in color. It can be done effectively with minimal effort with panorama software as mentioned earlier but with a feature called "mosaic". PS Elements does not have this feature. This will stitch together a sequence of digital images into one, as you see in the freeskier magazine. Shooting for a mosaic, you can either pan with the action or be on a tripod. The software does all the work and is actually quite amazing. It recognizes the background and melds your sequence into a single photograph. <BR>
You can find all the details here. <A HREF=http://www.panoguide.com/reference/stitching.html#types" TARGET='_blank'>http://www.panoguide.com/reference/stitching.html#types</A>
