    How to prevent vertical banding?

    Any ideas on how to remove or prevent the vertical banding in panoramas? It's shown up in several of mine.
    Here you can see it in two places near the center of the panorama.

    Toriaj,
    I had the same problem when using CS2. Solved the issue by using Panorama Studio. What's the software you are using to stitch?

    I just used a freeware, Autostitch. It's not very good. My trial on Panorama Composer ran out
    I downloaded the free trial of PanoramaStudio, but it says it can't find my files? Weird.

    But it makes sense that the banding comes from the low-quality program. You get what you pay for, most of the time

    In panorama studio, go to file > import images and then go to the folder that contains your photos and manually select the photos you want to stitch. Should work fine. Or if you could send me the pics, I could try something out.

    Thanks, avi777. I was using "open" instead of "import." I do like the program, and got this result:

    I actually noticed more vertical banding than before, though. Any ideas how I could reduce it?

    And I tried this crop. What do you think? Next time, I'll try to take the shot further to the right, so it isn't so slanted.

    Toriaj, it's come out beautiful now. You could always crop off the part with the watermark
    Regarding the banding, I think PanoramaStudio gives you an option after you click on the stitch button - something about adjusting focal length. Click on the option to select focal length automatically from EXIF data. That's how it works for me.

    Thanks, Avi. I like the editing features in the Panorama Studio program. I also worked on it PP, and overall I like the effect much better.
    Thanks for the tip, hope to see more of your own pics soon!
