Panoramas

Wikipedia reference to panoramic photography
describes panoramas as:

Panoramic photography is a technique of photography, using
specialized equipment or software, that captures images with
horizontally elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as
wide format photography. The term has also been applied to a
photograph that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio,
like the familiar letterbox format in wide-screen video.


Segmented panoramas, also called stitched panoramas, are made
by joining multiple photographs with slightly overlapping fields
of view to create a panoramic image, these images may not always
be wide as they can be made into large blocks or done vertically
in what I refer to as a vertorama.


Photoweb.US divides it's panoramas into 3 categories:


  • Block or cubed shaped panoramas

  • Traditional wide panoramas

  • Vertoramas or veritcal panoramas

A vertorama is an image composed of two or more photographs, joined together in image editing software, along a horizontal line, to form one image.
