7.5.4 Final Touches

At this point in the creation of the panorama, the image can be cropped and the various layers merged . Using the Crop   tool to retain only the regions corresponding to a complete rectangular image produces Figure  7.41.

In addition to the crop, the layers are also merged by typing C-m in either the Layers dialog or the image window.

There is a remaining defect that still seems important in the image: the molding along the ceiling in what was layer E before the merge. This piece of molding is not properly aligned with that of what was layer D. The Clone   tool described in Section  6.3 can be used to repair this defect. You can repair the molding by cloning the lower edge of the old layer E's visible molding to the top edge. This makes it vertically align with the molding in the segment from the old layer D. After the top edge has been reconstructed in this way, you can eliminate the lower edge by cloning the unadorned part of the wall just below it and using this to cover it up. The resulting final panorama is shown in Figure  7.42,
