Easy, Stunning Panoramic Photos

Trevor's picture

This week we're going to look at one of the clever things you can do with your iPhone or iPad. Firstly, you need the inexpensive programme called You Gotta See This! Download it through the App Store. Once installed, it uses the iPad's built-in camera to take a series of still pictures at short intervals (like a motor drive on a regular SLR) and stitches them all together to form a collage - you can choose the type of collage from a number of presets.

As you are taking the picture you can move the camera up and down, left and right, and get the most wonderful effects. But if you just hold the iPad vertically and rotate around the same spot, you can get a 360º panorama which will look great on your wall once printed and framed. Above you can see a panorama I took of Tel Aviv beach and below of Bograshov. I printed an A3 poster and my wife was amazed. Go on out there - start snapping and be prepared to impress your friends!
