Recently, I’ve gotten pretty into photography. I bought a digital SLR, a Nikon D40X, which I love. I also went to Germany recently, which gave me many opportunities to take some really pretty pictures. Many times, I couldn’t capture the scene in just one picture, so I had to take some panoramas. I generally do my panoramas vertically so I can capture a larger amount of vertical area. This requires more shots, but memory it cheap, and I don’t have to end up cropping parts I want to keep. I’m going to guide you through making a seamless panorama using only free and open-source software in Linux, specifically Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope.
