  • Stereocubemaps in Oculus Quest 2
    Not a perfect answer but If you convert your cubemaps into top/bottom pano splits you can view them using most of the vr viewer apps on the store. You can do this with hugin. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Ask HN: Which photographers do you admire?
    Stand in one place, take several pictures as the person walks/rides across, then use Hugin[1] to align the images, and compost them into the final image with GIMP[2]. If you're more prepared, you could just use a tripod to skip the need for alignment. [1] [2] - Source: Hacker News / about 1 month ago
  • can I use the Brenizer method in gimp
    But in the end you will want to go with a "1" click solution like using Hugin - Panorama photo stitcher which is really meant to do that kind of job. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • How do you adjust the perspective on buildings like this?
    I'd use Hugin with vertical/horizontal control points, or (because I'm lazy) just using the Hugin GL preview and dragging vertically to adjust the pitch/yaw. This is what I got just fooling around for a few minutes with both techniques ( - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Photoshop alternative for perspective correction by drawing guidelines?
    Hugin, a free panorama stitching tool, has excellent perspective correction, but there's a bit of a learning curve. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • How to stitch overlapping images together?
    This is where Hugin is usually the most useful application: - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • NASA was caught lying so how can anything they say or show be trusted?
    If you are curious of the type of method used in composite photo editing this freeware software will give you an idea. It is mostly used for panaramas but can also be used for grid stitching giving you a much wider field of view. The camera can only cover the area that it can depending on the height of the orbit so to make it much wider and get the whole planet from that location image stitching is used. It is... - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Can GIMP unwrap an image of a mirror ball to use as an HDRI spherical panorama?
    I'm not exactly sure what you want to do but there is a program called Hugin for creating panoramas. Maybe it could do a "reverse panorama". - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Round 2 for Today
    Ah, I should have thought about that. Hugin is a free tool that's fairly easy to use to stitch panorama together. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Folk Interfaces
    I use Hugin[1] to manually align images and combine them into virtual focus.[2] I started doing this after learning of the Stanford Multi-Camera array[3], and wanting to replicate the ability to see through things[4]. I didn't have the budget, so I used one camera and a cluster of photos from slightly varying locations. I got there eventually.[5] [1] [2]... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • HDR and panorama stitching app?
    If you don't mind going open source with possible one of the most crowded and least-easy GUIs around, there's Hugin, which has become the GUI for nearly every open source line command graphic manipulation tool out there. It used to use Panorama Tools like everyone else, but I think the codebase has moved on to better-licensed open source tools. Hugin should be able to HDR or exposure fusing and panostitching at... - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Official Question Thread! Ask /r/photography anything you want to know about photography or cameras! Don't be shy! Newbies welcome!
    Anyhow, it's been years since I touched ICE the last time, so I can't really give specific advice on it, but you might want to try Hugin - it's free and open source and very powerful. Nowdays quite easy to use too. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago

  • Official Question Thread! Ask /r/photography anything you want to know about photography or cameras! Don't be shy! Newbies welcome!
    The third solution is what I would do if I were you: I'd buy a suitable tripod and would use it to create wide angle images by combining many photographs in a computer with some nice software, like for example Hugin. That would give you enormous flexibility. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • First attempt at HDR. Feels a little “instagramy”. Advice on edit.
    Have you considered doing exposure fusion instead of hdr/tonemapping? :D It's easier to get more natural-looking results. I use the Lr/Enfuse Lightroom plug-in, but enfuse is open source and command line, so it's in a ton of different software packages, like Hugin and EnfuseGUI. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • GoPro Max Panorama Stills
    End goal of the project is something like Google street view. I was originally envisioning having a computer controlled set of cameras arranged in a circle and then stitched together using Hugin, but this may save a few steps if it will work. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Side shot fuckery series..4Cast
    Https:// Free open source software for doing exactly what we're talking about. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • software name?
    Hugin can do that, but it's a manual process so takes quite some time. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • I am trying to create a panoramic by stitching together loads of photos. May I please have a hand. link to pictures in the comments
    I tried it with Photoshop real quick, but it didn't match half of them. Perhaps try this tool: It will be a bit of work, but it can do a nice job. but really those screenshots are kind of bad quality to begin with. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Moon processing help
    I can recommend the hugin software for stitching. It has an option for automatically equalizing the brightness across the individual images. It is free open source software, so give it a try and check it out. Here's the link to the project website. You can also find tutorials on how to use it there. Just keep in mind that the images should be preprocessed beforehand, so if you do bias and dark correction, you... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Real hidden gems when it comes to self hosting
    I assume you mean Huginn since Hugin is a photo panorama stitching toolkit (also open-source and very useful for what it does). - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
