How to join two different scans into one image?

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by Ramicus ramicus, Aug 7, 2004.

  1. Hi group,

    I'd like to scan an image larger than my scanner area by
    making two separate scans and then just joining them together.

    Is there a freeware program that I can use to do that?

    Thanks,

    Ramicus ramicus

    Probably, but you should've said which version of which OS you're
    running. There are 'Doze and OS X binary packages of Gimp, a free-beer
    and free-speech image editor, at http://gimp.org/ . If you're running a
    Real OS, you probably already have Gimp installed. You can also use
    ImageMagick to concatenate images left-to-right like so:

    convert +append image01.tif image02.tif combinedimage.tif

    ....and ImageMagick is available for a lot of OSes at
    http://imagemagick.org/ . You're going to have to edit the combined
    image some no matter what you do, since things never line up perfectly
    in the real world, so you might want to grab a copy of Gimp unless you
    have another image editor hanging around. HTH,

  3. I've installed Panorama Tools and the gimp plugin for it on my Linux
    system. with some effort, I've figured out how to do a few things, but
    even after considerable google searching, I haven't found a really
    comprehensive explanation of how to use its features. For example, I
    now know how to correct radial luminosity starting at the center of the
    image, but what if I want to start lower? Any references for detailed
    help on how to use it? Or do I just have to keep scrounging and
    experimenting?
