Wow, that's awesome VaBeachGuy. I have no photoshop skills at all so that is amazing to me. Great job!

Thanks, I have a lot of fun doing it. Photoshop does have a panorama option but I used a program called PTGui. You just load the pictures and if they're in line with eachother it'll automatically make the panorama for you. In some cases if one photo is off a little and the software can't quite work it out you might have to go in and set control points to tell the software where identical points are in the 2 pictures, then it takes those control points and can line it up.

Sometimes it works out perfectly, sometimes it gives you some odd pictures lol.

Be warned though, it can be addicting lol. When I first got the software I was taking pictures of anything in my view just to play with the software. I even went so far one time as to make a full 360 degree panorama of my back yard that you can move the picture around and look all around the whole yard.

The key is to take pictures with panoramas in mind so that the images will fit together properly.

We are going in Dec...I can imagine how pretty the Christmas decorations would be in panorama like that.

Just be sure to stand in one spot and take the pictures so that part of the scene from the last picture is in the next picture. That way they can be stitched together properly.

It was seeing your photos on this thread DizneyNutz and having you help me figure out how to upload pics that got me interested in getting a DSLR. And I ended up with my pockets much lighter! You have many beautiful pictures of the lodge and I'm glad I got to see them - thanks!

Aww sorry to see that your pictures are gone.

Your photos were some of my favorites of WL and inspired me to spend more time there taking pictures on our last two trips. In fact, in May we drove over from SSR to just enjoy the lodge and I took a ton of photos of all the details. Glad I saw yours before they were gone!

Dizneynutz....I miss your beautiful pictures. I also want to thank you again for the music you were so kind to send me about 5 yrs ago. You know what I mean.... It has gotten me through 4 surgeries and brought me more pleasure than you could ever know. Have a great day....

Thanks Everyone

I apologize for being an ole fuddy. It struck a wrong nerve when a couple of people visited the thread and said it was too large for their valuable time to look through it all and they just wanted someone to point them to the exact page where they could see what they were looking for. Some of the things they were requesting to see where in several of my photos, so I in a moment of haste went onto photobucket and deleted all the WL photos from photobucket. They don't even consider everyones time they spent downloading them all to Photo Bucket and then from there onto here. Anyhow you all have been very kind and I still visit the thread to see everyone else's photos to keep us excited and were counting down until early December again. I hope you all have a trip planned and it turns out MAGICAL

DisneyNutz, you have MADE this thread what it is !!!! Please don't let a few "it is all about me" selfish people ruin it for the rest of us. It is sad in life that we have folks that are so focused on themselves, that they don't take the time to think how long it takes to upload these photos onto the Dis boards, folks like that are not worth your time !!! I can not say how much I appreciate all your BEAUTIFUL photos & hope they return, but that is completely your choice & I respect your decision. I want you to know that when I started this thread, you are the one that made the anticipation of my first WL Trip in Dec 2008 more magical than I can express with your photos & I know many others feel the same way I do, so THANK YOU !!!!!!

I too, have enjoyed your pics, thanks so much for sharing them. We have never stayed at WL and a girlfriend of mine (her first trip) and I are going in Sept. I wanted to try somewhere I had never stayed, so I chose WL (my DH is very jealous)

I sure hope it turns out to be as great as it all sounds. Can't wait!

I'm adding my 2 cents too. I love all the pics, that is the purpose of this thread. If others are too lazy to look then they aren't serious about checking out the WL, IMHO. WL is my home away from home and I enjoying looking at these pics to get my "Disney Fix" when I'm home sick and that includes yours DisneyNutz, which are some of the best.

I know that when DW and I were first starting to stay at the WL we could not get enough of pictures of the resort. We still go back to view them for memories and in anticipation of our next visit. That is why I was so excited about keeping it going when Disney N December started this thread. As I stated previously, I acted in haste. With respect to this wonderful thread and ALL of you who have contributed to it, I will attempt to fill in (may take a while) the pictures I removed, just not going to attempt to put them where the were orginally. Thank You to all of you who have kept this thread going.
