Affinity rejects images for use in "Stitching"

Recommended Posts

Today I tried to capture an image off a post-card which was too long for my scanner. So I thought I should try the "Stitching Panoramas" feature of Affinity.

Here are the steps I used:

  1. Scanned left hand side of the image, which resulted in a .png image (my joice),
  2. Scanned rest of the image, which resulted in a second .png image,
  3. Read the two images into Affinity,
  4. Cropped the left hand side image as it contained some text which I was not interested in. This copping created, of course, two images of slightly different sizes.
  5. Next I went to File>New Panorama in Affinity. This opened the Panorama Stitching window.
  6. I then used the add option to add the two images.
  7. So far so good .....
  8. Next I clicked on the "Stitch Panorama" button. This caused an error message which says "No Panoramas found". How come? What exactly makes a couple of images a panorama?

Attached is a screen shot which shows that my two images appeared to be accepted.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ian,

thanks for the quick response. You are absolutely right in suggesting that I use the left and right scanned images before cutting the text from the left image. In fact, instead of scanning the card once more, I simply took three pictures of it using my iPod Touch (an Apple phone, without the phone 😁), left - centre - right, and then added these pictures to the Panorama Stitch process. And that worked just fine.

Thans again for your help.
