An old stone home with a newer addition in upstate New York, shown above and below, needed decorative concrete pathways, driveways, a protected patio, and a side yard to help the homeowner "see" it.  Follow the suggested links to see even more of the project.

About... The Upstate New York Multiple-Views Composite Photos project...
Prime Site Work & Concrete LogoSometimes the property is wider than your digital camera has room for but the customer wants to see it all
With this decorative concrete multiple-views project created for Prime Site Work & Concrete Inc., the contractor had the foresight to take multiple photos of each of the longer house sides... the front yard and the side yard.  Since he didn't have a wide-angle lens (which distorts pictures anyway) or a panorama camera, this was the next best option.
As the imager, you can then "knit" these still photos into one lo-o-o-o-ng "before" photo that can go the distance.  (Just don't try to do that all in front of the customer!)
The idea works for paver/hardscape projects just as easily.


To view the actual larger-sized composite photos, more after images of the missing garage/driveway area with several decorative concrete options, along with additional plan sketches, check out the:

"For composite photos, even if photos are slightly different color tones, use them anyway.  Then hide any awkward transitions with tall plants and shrubs.  Definitely distract the eye with a lush landscape."
-- Diane
Was planning to send out  a monthly version of "Imaging TIPS" just for contractors who've already purchased Depiction Software's Hardscape Imaging or Deco-Com Imaging software with a focus on "how to" do something in the software that may puzzle you. 
It suddenly occurred to me... that I should ask first...
What are you having imaging problems with?
Please drop me a line either on my website form: DJSquire Designs Contact

(To avoid some email spam from Internet bot crawlers, when I archive this, just stitch the email together.)
Take a look at a few older archived versions of Imaging TIPS.
