I've been doing photography off and on since I was about 10. There was a period when I got to work with large format view cameras and I really enjoyed the results. With the new digital technology, I'm finding large format has a new meaning and find myself drawn toward this work.
I have used both Photoshop CS2 and autostitch for stitching. While photoshop is easier to use, autostitch gives better results when photoshop leaves gaps.

Currently using Hugin.
Now, I wonder if a gigapixel image of a model would be appropriate here? After all, I could certainly place her in the exact geographical location where the picture was taken.
