Paris from the top
I’m having a ball shooting panoramic images in Europe, so I thought I’d share one sample (more to come). I created this 27MP Parisian pano by taking a series of shots from atop the Tour Montparnasse, home to the local Adobe office. I stitched the images together by loading them via the files-to-layers script, then choosing Edit->Auto-Align Layers, followed by Edit->Auto Blend Layers, and finally Export->Zoomify.
Adobe must have a thing for towers, and I write this from the Barcelona office, which tops a 20-story building overlooking the beach. The city is as beautiful as I’d been told, so I look forward to shooting more tourist bits–er, valuable test files–in a bit.
