Tutorial – Group Management

Panaustik can detect and gather images that have similar subjects. But, sometimes, we get a group that does not achieve a correct view because it brings together images taken from different viewpoints.

Mixed groups

Start Panaustik. Choose the mode Low “Similarity” (cursor left) and run the analysis. In particular, we got the group of “Mammoth Hot Spring” (Yellowstone USA) which is actually composed of two groups of images.

Image selection

First, one can search the images that make up a single panoramas.
Moving the mouse over the images, one can see where images are positioned in the view.
By clicking on the images while holding the “Ctrl” key, you can select / deselect individual image. This updates the view.
Clear the last four pictures:

The two remaining images seems to belong to the same view!

Cut group into two other groups

If we generate the panorama now, we will obtains the desired image, but the entire group will be moved to a subdirectory!
To avoid this, we will separate the group into two other groups.
“Pin” the first two images (Click on the images while holding the “Alt” key). Click the right mouse button to bring up the context menu and choose “Split the group into two.”

The initial group only contains the first two pictures and a second group was created at the end of the list groups.

Panorama Optimization

The assembly of a group requires that the images are superimposed. But, it is not always necessary that all images be drawn. Thus, in the last created group, the first image may be deselected without affecting the overall rendering of the panorama.

This method is very useful to reduce blur or ghosts that occur when, for example, decorative elements do not overlap exactly (first planes, boats, …)
