I'm trying Hugin and can't get the darned thing to work (the tutorial on the website is antiquated). I know there ia a way to do it with Photoshop, but I'm so far unable to locate a tutorial for that as well. If anyone has the know-how or at least can point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it.

Would this work? (http://www.wetcanvas.com/ArtSchool/StudioTips/ScanBigImages/)

I do it the old fashioned way: I add up the dimensions of each image width times height, then make a new image that encompasses those dimensions, then copy each image into the new one, overlap as necessary, and flatten.

Photoshop:

File Menu:
Automate,
Photomerge

from there it's pretty self-explanatory

I've literally spent HOURS pouring through Lynda.com, photoshop tutorial links and You Tube and just discovered this right after I posted this thread. LOL IT"S SO EASY!!!! Sweet! Now I can really get down on my drawings!

Nice, anyone know if Gimp has anything to do this? Otherwise I'm doing this just like Ascension does it.

I use Huggin. Here is a tutorial http://hugin.sourceforge.net/tutorials/scans/en.shtml If it is out of date, I could redo it with the latest version, if there were interest. I found it quite trivial to do.
