Photo software or photoshop technique


Established Member

I have done some major work on the interior and exterior of my house and want to show the differences.

I took the before photos 16 months ago and want to take the after photos from the same angle / zoom which will be pretty much impossible.

When I take the after photo when I flick from the before to the after they are never going to line up acturately due to the photo angle and the zoom I used.

Basically, my questions are:

  • Can I use a function within photoshop to crop the 2 photos to ensure they line up?

  • If photoshop can't do it, what software will?

Thanks for your advice

Check exif for zoom length and other details, then get a tripod and trial & error, depends on how accurate you want it as to how much time youll spend.

Ah, was hoping there was going to be a clever someware technique to help me out.

My only other solution is to make an animated gif to morph from one photo to the other.

If you can get it very close 'in camera' it's possible to make slight adjustments to angles etc using the distort tool in photoshop.

However, getting it close 'in camera' is essential - using EXIF data to help is good advice.
