…”with Columbus as a vision, an occasion for a historical panorama of a continent out of his control”, and the occasion, is working with the Lumia Panorama app on Windows Phone. Here is a quick tutorial for how to generate a panorama.
Firstly, don’t be afraid, the entry point for a panorama is a breathtaking view, breathe it in… its lost and slighted origin. Open the Lumia Panorama app, start at the left of your horizon and hit the Camera icon – you are going to shoot left to right. See the words “hold phone steady” and you will know you have almost got this sorted. Note the line leading out to the right…follow it until the two circles meet. Overlay the circle, hold phone steady again, and continue to the next.
When complete, you should see the words, “Creating panorama” and hopefully you don’t end up with something that looks like a scene from the sci-fi movie “Ellipse”.
Finally, before you go and get on with the panorama thing… in the words of Christopher Columbus himself “Riches don’t make a man rich, they only make him busier”… happy panorama-ing… remember, it’s about the small things.
