The Multiple TIFF settings dialog box appears when you press the Multiple TIFF settings... button on the Save Image As dialog box. It lets you control attributes of the set of exported TIFF image files. The Multiple TIFF export format is used when you want to blend your panorama using an external blending program such as Enblend or Smartblend. Each layer of the panorama is saved as a separate TIFF file.
When you enter a file name on the Save Image As dialog box, The Panorama Factory appends “_01.tiff”, “_02.tiff”, etc. to create the actual output file names for the individual layer files.
Initializes theoptions on this dialog box to specific values for certain external blending programs.
Allows you to choose whether to save the file with 24-bit pixels (8 bits per color channel) or 48-bit pixels (16 bits per color channel).
This option is available only if the image uses 45-bit pixels. See Use 45-bit pixels and Enable color tool on the Project properties dialog box to learn about 45-bit pixels.
Controls the cropping of layer images. If you choose the cropped option, the output TIFF files respect the cropping bounds if you are exporting a stitched and cropped image. If you choose the uncropped option, the output TIFF files are enlarged if necessary to include the entire original image.
Controls the blending of layer images. If you choose the blended option, the alpha channel of each TIFF file is used to blend the images according to the way that you have edited the overlap regions. The unblended option uses the alpha channel only to define the boundaries of the warped images. If you are using an external blending program, you should choose the unblended option.
Determines the attributes of the alpha channel in the TIFF files. Some external blending programs require the alpha channel to be marked as either associated or unassociated with the image data. Refer to the documentation of the program you are using to determine whether one or the other is required.
Select this checkbox to save images with uncorrected colors. Normally images are saved with the colors shown on the screen as affected by the Color tool settings. Selecting this checkbox allows saving the image file without applying color correction.
This option is available only if the image uses 45-bit pixels and the Save 48-bit pixels option is selected. See Use 45-bit pixels and Enable color tool on the Project properties dialog box to learn about 45-bit pixels.
