PTGui Workflow

The Swiss photographer Peter Nyfeler kindly downloaded my Canon 5D museum samples and produced a workflow for the MS Windows software PTGui.
He used the following methodology:
1. Load pics to PTGui (Rotation / CP's / Optimize and so on....)
2. Output as layerd PSD file
3. Retouching the layer masks and brigthness differences in Photoshop
4. Saved each layer as seperate tiff file (Photoshop Javascript from Erik Krause)
5. Run Smartblend to merge the tiff's
6. Color / brightness and sharp
Here are a number of the supporting files to make it work with PTGui
1. The original Canon 5D files
2. The PTGui .pts file
3. The PTGui .pqp file

The resulting QTVR file
