Tips and Advice: Photo Selection

Photo tips

  • Look for sharp focus and detail. Use the macro position if needed
  • Pick photos where the background is a contrasting color and makes the subject stand out
  • Focus as closely as possible on your main subject


  • Blurred pictures
  • Very dark or very pale pictures
  • Strong constrasts with heavily shaded parts that will turn into large areas of dark color when stitched
  • Undefined, “busy” backgrounds (heavy vegetation, cluttered rooms), shaded areas, reflections and elements that make the subject difficult to identify (alternatively you can simply decide not to stitch the background)
