Image Stitching is concerned with merging several images capturing a scene such that a larger image is obtained. Nowadays, several software packages are available that perform this task automatically. Firstly we discuss the background of one of the most successful ones. Secondly, we point out that the underlying principles of such packages can serve as inspiration for artistic use by using input images that partially deviate from these assumptions.
