    Panoramic photos using stitching software, panoramic cameras, or cropping to give the effect.

    Thanks for the theme suggestion, simdan42!

    Is a large vertically stitched image still considered a panoramic, or does it have to be horizontal?

    Don’t think it should matter the direction of the panorama.

    and where’s the line between a skinny crop and a panorama? 2:1… 3:1?

    Couldnt a panormic be stitched Vertically AND horizontally? I would think panoramic is anything that is wider than the normal field of view attainable by a camera.. Especially if stitched.

    Good question. I don’t know the answer.

    Just did a quick Google – Wikipedia says this…

    I like the angle definition of >160 degrees.

    Is there any chance we could get the 640 px widened for this contest?

    Alas no 🙁 Thats a limit imposed by the site design itself. We used to have 700 pixels wide, but the redesign changed things.

    That seems like kind of an odd definition to me. It would generally include fisheye shots of any aspect ratio, and exclude images shot with most (if not all) panoramic cameras, not to mention many stitched images shot with longer lenses (unless they contained dozens and dozens of images).

    The reason I asked:

    Also, is there a max height for posting images on Fark? I’m too lazy to go look it up…

    1100 pixels is the max height.
