Thx for that Carl. I'll get onto the masking now that it is morning here [Jakarta] and let you know. I shot these pics on a D80 and have a set in tiff so here I go. The flicker idea sounds good too. Or maybe initially I'll use the Attach file section.
many thanks Geoff

You could upload images to the 'Files' section or maybe even better to flickr.com and link to the image in your posting.
From your description I suspect you should try to mask out unwanted parts with alpha masks. JPGs don't accept masks so you need to use e.g. TIFF files. Masking unwanted parts is done using Photoshop or the GIMP.
Maybe this wiki article will give you an idea of how that works:

BTW Hugin will have a 'mask' tab in the next release, see <http://wiki. panotools. org/Hugin_ Mask_tab> (pre release versions are already available for testing purposes).
