Aligning and adjusting images using photoshop: Core scan example
1 About this approach
In this approach we use photoshop to align images and make image brightness, contrast and other adjustments. These instructions are written for photoshop CS6, but they should be applicable to other recent versions of Photoshop.
This approach has these advantages over aligning images in adobe illustrator or other vector package:
- Opportunity to automatically align images
- Ability to make image brightness, contrast and other adjustments live (and reversibly)
- Ability to make granular image adjustments (i.e. at the edges of aligned images to make them match better).
