Hugin 1

Hugin is a cross-platform open source panorama photo stitching and HDR merging program developed by Pablo d’Angelo and others. It is a GUI front-end for Helmut Dersch’s Panorama Tools and Andrew Mihal’s Enblend and Enfuse. Stitching is accomplished by using several overlapping photos taken from the same location, and using control points to align and transform the photos so that they can be blended together to form a larger image. Hugin allows for the easy (optionally automatic) creation of control points between two images, optimization of the image transforms along with a preview window so the user can see whether the panorama is acceptable. Once the preview is correct, the panorama can be fully stitched, transformed and saved in a standard image format.

We have a set of images, which if stitched together they can produce a panorama. We wanted to create a panoramic ‘artwork’ using Prisma (because we like their work).
Unfortunately, a current limitation of Prisma, is that it will only produce square images of maximum size 1080px, so we could not supply it with a panorama an expect it to create the panoramic ‘artwork’.

To achieve our goal, we converted our images to ‘art’ using Prisma and we supplied the result to Hugin to create the panoramic ‘artwork’.
By using the simple wizard of Hugin we were able to create these lovely images presented in this post.

Note: Since the images we loaded into Hugin were processed by Prisma, they lost all their EXIF information.
Because of the missing EXIF information, Hugin could not know the focal length of the camera so we had to supply it manually.
In our case, for Galaxy S4 it was 35mm. After supplying this information everything went smoothly as you can see in the results.

We created two sets of images, one using the Mosaic filter (above) and another using the Dallas filter (below).
