Merging scans

Post by bprosman » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:43 am

Sorry , might belong here more :

Looking for hints/tips/tricks and experiences in merging (schematic) scans. I have some Apple II schematics that are larger than A3.
Anyone experience with this ?

Kind regards, Bram

Did you try to make a photo with a good camera?

Hi Roland,

I can scan A3/A4 to all kinds of formats.
Was hoping for a smart way to “glue them together”

I use GIMP on my Linux system for spicing/joining and editing picture/photo/scan files.

GIMP is primarily a photo editing application.

I normally cut images into manageable chunks, carefully selecting the edges to be where there are vertical and horizontal easily identifiable features, and overlapping with the chunk it is going to be joined with. This makes joining far easier. As it is possible to use these features on the drawing to line things up.

It is also helpful to have a logical naming system for each file, so that you don’t have to open it to remember which bit it is.

Maybe PhotoStitcher works for you.
