    Help ...Digitally stitch together a drawing too big for my scanner?

    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.

    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

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 Here is a tutorial http://hugin.sourceforge.net/tutorials/scans/en.shtml If it is out of date, I could redo it with the latest version, if there were interest.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