I just installed this rock wall along my driveway. I thought it might be fun to post a pic once a week. The first photos are the blank slate.The rockery is planted with seed, so it maybe slow going at first. I will post a new pic every Monday.

The tee post fence is temporary. Will need a more stout fence for the pigs next year.

Hey everyone,

I installed the post for my new fence. Doing so, I trashed most of the flower starts. When I designed the fence layout, I thought it would be safe to plant. I should have waited on seeding.

That's coming along really good. And look at that neat coil of hose around the bucket! At least, it looks like water hose-


 o
RE: Weekly Photo progression

Yes water hose. The green bucket is full of water for the two dogs.

Still not much in the way of flowers. It's turned more into a fence project.

Coming along nicely. That is a huge project you have going there. Should be beautiful when it's all done.

Good stitching, Eric.
Picture took a long time to load, but well worth the wait.

I have a program that stitches too, but the finished product comes out with curved edges. How do you get yours to result in a nice rectangle? What program do you use?

The program I use is Camedia Master, which is the software that came w/my Olympus camera.

Julie,

I have "Microsoft Picture it, Photo premium 9". It doesn't have the stitch feature. What I did was, make a copy of one photo and pasted it along side the other. Then wiggle around a bit and resize until they match. Then save the the new photo. After saving, I crop the photo to square it up. Save again. Is this clear as mud??

It's not perfect. See the line in the photo.

Very clever!
I never would have seen the line if you didn't point it out.

Your explanation was clear. That took a lot of patience and a good eye to match the edges.

eric wa, Might want to take a look at the link below for your panoramic pics. It's fast and does a good job.

Here's a sample of Autostich work I did of our garden. Six images, about 3 minutes or less to process and then cropped with ACDsee.
