       pnmstitch - stitch together two panoramic (side-by-side)	photographs

       pnmstitch  [ [left_filespec] right_filespec | left_filespec right_file-
       spec output_filespec ] [-width=width] [-height=height] [-xrightpos=col-
       umn]   [-yrightpos=row]	[-stitcher={RotateSliver,  BiLinearSliver,Lin-
       earSliver}]    [-filter={LineAtATime,HorizontalCrop}]	 [-output=out-
       put_filespec] [-verbose]

       All  options  can  be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix.  You
       may use two hyphens instead of one.  You	may separate  an  option  name
       and its value with white	space instead of an equals sign.

       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       pnmstitch  stitches  together two panoramic photographs.	 This means if
       you have	photographs of the left	and right side of  something  that  is
       too  big	 for  a	 single	camera frame, pnmstitch	can join them into one
       wide picture.

       pnmstitch works only on side-by-side images, not	top and	bottom (though
       you  could  certainly  use  pamflip  in	combination  with pnmstitch to
       achieve this).  It stitches together two	images,	but you	can use	it re-
       peatedly	to stitch together as many as you need to.

       Your  photographs  must overlap in order	for pnmstitch to work, and the
       overlap should be substantial.	pnmstitch  shifts  and	stretches  the
       right hand image	to match it up the left	hand image.  You probably want
       to crop the result with pamcut to make a	nice rectangular image.

       If you're just trying to	join (concatenate) two images at their	edges,
       use pnmcat.

       The  left_filespec  and right_filespec arguments	are the	specifications
       (names) of the PNM files	containing the left hand and  right  hand  im-
       ages.   If  you	specify	only right_filespec, the left hand image comes
       from Standard Input.  If	you specify neither,  both  images  come  from
       Standard	Input as a multi-image file containing first the left and then
       the right image.

       output_filespec is the specification (name) of  the  output  PNM	 file.
       The  -output option also	specifies the output file.  You	cannot specify
       both the	argument and the option.  If you specify neither,  the	output
       goes to Standard	Output.




	      These are	constraints on where pnmstitch stitches	the images to-
	      gether.  For the LinearSliver method, column and row  tell  what
	      location	in  the	 right	hand image matches up to the top right
	      corner of	the left hand image.

	      LinearSliver} The	default	is RotateSliver.

	      No details available.

	      Name of output file.  If you don't specify this option, the out-
	      put image	goes to	Standard Output.

	      This option causes pnmstitch to issue messages to	Standard Error
	      about the	stitching process.
