Joining image seamlessly

Recommended Posts

I need the attached image for the main page of a website - the original image wasn't wide enough so I cut out a chunk, flipped it horizontally and spliced the two together - as you can see, there is a vertical line just around the 950px mark that I tried to blur out with some pixelation effect. I also tried blurring it and other effects, but no matter what I try I can't seem to make it almost invisible - it's still to visible when the image is at full size display. Any advice on what I should do? 

Edit: the full image was too big so I only uploaded the affected part.

Host your image somewhere, like photobucket, and link it here and we'll take a look.

BTW, if the seam area isn't too busy (like blue skys, etc.), try selecting the area and use Effects > Noise > Median.

Ok, so here is the image as it looks after I've spliced it together with no effects:




And here it is after applying median effect:




Definitely an improvement, but of course I can't help notice the affected area.. but maybe that's just me. Any thoughts / ideas for improvement?

That's clearly not two images spliced together, but one image that was poorly mirrored.


Here it is properly mirrored at the right edge. Not that this looks any better though. ;)

(September 25th, 2023)  Sorry about any broken images in my posts. I am aware of the issue.

Guess I should have said mirroring :) I know it's not very well done, I tried to avoid too much symmetry. If I was entering a photo contest or something, it would clearly not be good enough - but when adding it to my website now, I think it's not that easy to spot, you kind of have to know it's there to see it I'd say. But still interested in opinions :)
