• Aligning pictures

    From Arthur T.@21:1/5 to All on Wed Dec 16 23:17:15 2020
    I took several pictures as a manual time-lapse and I'd like to put
    them together as an animated GIF. But I didn't keep the camera on a
    tripod, so the pictures are all a bit misaligned, probably both
    slightly angled, and slightly different camera location. At least I
    always have the same level of zoom (I think).

    Is there a reasonably easy way to align them? Or do I have to do
    something like open as layers and play with MOVE, ROTATE, SKEW,
    SHEAR, etc. until they match up pretty well?

    In addition to GIMP, I have gifsicle & Image Magick handy. I'm open
    to installing other (free) software if it'll make my life easier.

    I considered using STPHMKRE, even though it's not what it's designed
    for. But that works on only two at a time and would make changes to
    both, so it would be a horrible iterative process with JPEG
    degradation with each step.
