Alp, the answer is you can't. But let me qualify that statement, CZ needs
pictures to have dimentions that are multiples of small intigers, plus to
make processing near the edge of the frames more efficient it needs a border
that it can 'spoil' without degrading the result too much. Another point
you might not have realized is that often frames need resizing or shifting
to make features line up properly, this often spoils the edges of the result
which must then be cropped.
You can remove the border from a picture when you save it. the onscreen
picture still looks the same but the contents of the dotted rectangle is
saved by 'Save Rectangle As'. Initially the rectangle encloses the whole
picture. Press the letter 'A' once and the rectangle jumps in to the size
of your original frames. Press 'A' a second time and the program tries to
place the rectangle so that all unsightly borders will not be saved by Save
Rectangle As. You can also drag out a box using the mouse, the contents of
your custom rectangle are then saved by this function.
So the short answer to your question is that you cannot shrink the onscreen
image but you can save a cropped version of it.

Subject: [CombineZ] Output dimensions bigger than input
Great program (combineZ)!
I have noticed that my output images (Do Stack, Pyramid etc) are
larger than my input files in dimension.
Input files are 3072x2304.
Output (stacked) images are 3135x2556 (pixels).
The extra area is a mirror of a part of the image it is next to, if
you follow what I am trying to say. It is as if a mirror image was
attached to the bottom of the image but the whole thing got cropped
off at 2556 (y axis).
It isn't critical, but how do I stop this from happening?
