Hugin Overview

This tutorial explains the different stages of the panorama stitching process and discusses the concepts involved.

Stitching two photos together

This tutorial covers the simplest usage of Hugin, just taking two handheld photographs and sticking them together into a single image.

Stitching Multi-row photos together

This tutorial covers a more complex application of Hugin, taking two rows of handheld photographs and stitching them together into a single image, using the automated Assistant. The same process can be applied to more than two rows.

Simulating an architectural projection

This tutorial covers a basic non-panoramic usage of Hugin; taking a handheld photograph and using vertical control-points to correct lens barrel distortion and remove perspective effects.

Stitching photos from different lenses

Hugin can stitch photos taken with different lenses and even different cameras.

Stitching flat scanned images

This tutorial covers another non-panoramic usage of Hugin — Taking two or more partial scanned images of a large object, such as an LP cover, map or poster, and stitching them seamlessly into a single final image.

Stitching murals- mosaic mode

This tutorial describes how to stitch photos of a mural on a flat surface, all of which can be shot from different camera angles and locations, and also shows how to mask out objects which may be obscuring part of the mural.

Perspective correction

This tutorial covers a basic use of Hugin — Using both horizontal and vertical control-points to remove all perspective effects from a photograph.

Simple lens calibration

This tutorial describes the application of Hugin to obtain lens distortion parameters a, b, c. These parameters can be saved for reuse in future projects, or imported into a lens database such as lensfun.

Transverse chromatic aberration correction with Hugin and fulla

This tutorial explains how Hugin can be used to estimate parameters for the correction of transverse chromatic aberration. The resulting coefficients can be used with the PanoTools correct plugin, or the fulla program distributed with Hugin.

Using Blend Masks

Hugin 2010.2 introduces a capability to define and edit 'exclude' and 'include' masks that you can use to guide the blending of image overlap.
This tutorial explains how to use blend masks.

Creating 360° enfused panoramas

enfuse is a new tool for merging bracketed exposures and assembling a composite image containing the best exposed bits of each. Hugin 0.7.0 includes complete support for creating Exposure fused images with enfuse.

Stitching auto-exposed panoramas

Stitching panoramas shot with a camera on auto-exposure is a pain. Hugin 2009.2.0 now has a useful output option that uses seam blending for stitching photos with minor exposure differences and uses exposure fusion for assembling these exposure layers into a final panorama.

Surveying buildings

This tutorial shows an advanced use of Hugin in combination with a separate 3D modeller, the example used is the creation of a complex 3D survey of a building from a single hand-held photo.


Hugin is a nice tool for creating seamless tileable textures. All you need is a photo of a repeating pattern.

Handling Over exposure in stitched images

This tutorial shows how you can correct over exposure in one or more of your images and obtain a good stitched result.

Peter Gawthrop has written a simple step by step tutorial for getting started with stitching a small number of photos.

Creating linear panoramas with Hugin

This tutorial by Joachim Fenkes is a more advanced version of the stitching flat scanned images tutorial. Except instead of scanned images, photographs of a long mural are assembled into a single image.

Creating Spherical Panoramas with the Canon 5D and 15mm Fisheye Lens

Peter Gawthrop has written a Hugin tutorial covering creation of a full spherical panorama from a small number of fisheye photos. The tutorial also shows how to use a simple tone-mapping technique to blend bracketed exposures into a final image with detail covering the full exposure range.

Mark Vanstone's articles on creating panoramas with hugin

Mark wrote a series of articles about panorama making in general while using Hugin to produce the output.

John Houghton's tutorials

While John is using PTGui or PTAssembler, his tutorials are an excellent source of information about creating panoramic images with Panorama Tools. Read here to learn more about the inner working of Hugin, for example how the optimizer works and how it can be used best.

Enfuse for time lapse

Alister Ling has written about using Enfuse with time lapse images, using Enfuse_droplets.bat (Windows) and EnfuseGUI (Windows and Mac).

Panoramen mit HUGIN

Dieses Tutorial beschreibt die Erstellung von Panoramen mit Hugin. Die einzelnen Schritte werden detailliert erklärt und dargestellt. Ein sehr umfangreiches Tutorial mit vielen weiterführenden Informationen die für das Verständnis von Hugin und den Panorama Tools wichtig sind.

Panoramabilder erstellen

Hugin の概要



Hugin の最も簡単な利用法として、手持ち撮影された2枚の写真をつないで1枚にする方法を説明します。


より複雑な利用法として、手持ち撮影された上下2行にわたる複数枚の写真を、 自動化された Assistant を使ってつないで1枚の写真にする方法を説明します。


パノラマ作成以外での基本的な利用法を説明します。 写真を手持ち撮影し、鉛直コントロールポイントを使ってレンズのたる型歪み を修正するとともに遠近法の効果を除きます。




もうひとつのパノラマ作成以外の利用法について説明します。 大きな対象物(LPレコードのジャケットや地図やポスターなど)を複数の部分に分けてスキャンし、 それらをスティッチして継ぎ目のない1枚の画像を完成させます。


Hugin の基本的な利用法として、 水平と鉛直とを定義するコントロールポイントの両方を使って遠近法による変形を除く方法を説明します。


Enfuse という新しいツールを用い、 ブラケット撮影による露出をマージして各画像のうち最適な露出の画素からなる合成画像を作成します。 Hugin 0.7.0 では enfuse を用いた露出合成画像の作成機能が完全に利用可能です。


自動露出で撮影した写真からパノラマを作成するのは困難です。 Hugin 2009.2.0 の新しい便利な出力オプションを使うと、 露出が少しだけ異なる写真をブレンドによってつないで露出レイヤーを作ったうえで 露出合成によってそれらを合成して最終的なパノラマにできます。
