What the heck is a vertorama?
What’s that you say? This photo has been up on Flickr for quite some time without a link to a before and after comparison? Sheesh, I’m lazy. 😉
Anyway, this photo is technically referred to as a vertorama. It basically means that it’s composed of multiple stitched photos in a vertical format as opposed to a (more traditional) horizontal panoramic format. This particular image is composed of 6 HDR photos. The 6 (processed) HDR photos were stitched together using Autopano Giga, a very powerful piece of software that makes pano work very easy.
If you are curious about the HDR Panorama process, I’ve created a little tutorial that explains it in greater detail.
Ehem… And the link to the before and after is up 😉
