Auto stitching/panorama pic

spAnser's site is unfortunatly not updated to the latest updates :(

Springfield Heights has ruined rendered towns for now. I have plans of a newly designed tsto.me that wont even require you to login. This could take a while to make though since my new ideas aren't 100% operational yet. I have plans on animated panoramas. It might even go as far as characters walking around or at least start with visual tasks being displayed.

    Until Giuseppe creates this magical new tsto.me :D, the only way to get a panorama of your SF is to do it the old-fashioned way: take screenshots of your town and stitch them together manually with a program like Photoshop. This is time-consuming and somewhat frustrating.

    First, you gotta get 80, 100, 120? (with all the new land, I haven't any idea how many it would take) individual screenshots. With each shot you need to wait for the heads-up display (money, donut count, task book, etc) to disappear. I've heard it's best to get them all in one sitting - if you accidentally exit out, switch apps, take a phone call, you may need to start over as apparently the zoom can change slightly when you return, causing discrepancies.

    Assuming you've accurately covered your entire town and have all the screenshots, now comes the hard part: putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Easier said than done. You'll need: a computer, a program like Photoshop, and a lot of patience. Aligning each picture is crucial - messing up one section can easily create bigger problems on the other side of the map.

    If you google "autostitch" I think there are programs that can assist with this process. Though they are not free and I've never used any of them and can't speak as to how well it would work.

    Here is a link to an old, how to make a panoramic of your town: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9372252.page

    Actually... Stitching images together in Photoshop (or Photoshop programs like GIMP - which is free by the way) isn't that hard.

    Start by loading the first image. Estimate how big your final image is going to be, then expand your Canvas to that size.

    Load your next image as a new layer. In the layer Mode menu choose 'Difference', then move the new layer over the primary layer until the crossover area turns black (this means they match). Turn the layer Mode back to 'Normal', then combine the layers. Repeat for each image.

    There are Photoshop apps for iPad, but I've never really used them so I don't know how well they work.

    Apologies if that has offended you, not my intentions. I've always felt that "LPN" was an insufficient moniker for such an awesome contributor to these forums and the TSTO family in general - we need (no we don't) something more personal.

    I went for the funny as "Giuseppe" was the most stereotypical Italian name I could think of. Now, in my brain, whenever I see a post from our friend LPN, my mind thinks, "What wisdom is Giuseppe imparting upon us?"

    I don't think my little brain can go back to "LPN," but perhaps a more favorable, yet still very stereotypical name? :P

    Any of the following work better for ya:
    Vito
    Lucca
    Santino
    Marco
    Giovanni
    Vincenzo
    Sergio
    Salvatore
    Bruno
    Fabrizio
    Pasquale
    Any of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    ?

    Again, just having some fun, good sir. Feel free to call this stupid American a "strattone" if it so applies!

    (and sorry to the boards for getting off-topic)

    I've tried using paintshop, it's a bit labour intensive and people walk around and you end up with someone in two places at once :?

    Photoshop's Photomerge, is what I use. The screenshots are a bit of work, but then the program does all the rest for you. It will figure out where each one goes and line them all up correctly. Pretty amazing actually.
