JPhilipW (talk) 01:12, 15 May 2014 (UTC) I'm new to this, but this article seems more like a promotion of Breizer than a recognized "method." This method "developed in 2008" has been used by thousands of people for as long a PanoTools has been around. It's commonly known as a "stitched mosaic" or a "tiled panorama." I question whether Wikipedia should legitimize an eponymous name for a long and widely used panorama technique. I don't think I have ever seen the term "Breneizer Method" used by anyone in the PanoTools community. Might this be promotional?

It seems to me this is a pretty generic image stitching technique that predates the credited person's use of it. It would be appropriate to describe it in a section of a photo-stiching/Panotools/digital panorama stitching/etc. Any thoughts?

I've looked at the article (having originally reviewed it) and it seems a lot of extraneous and not very useful external links have crept in. I've revised these and also taken out the first link which someone had replaced with Ryan Brenizer's home page (that's unacceptable so I've now moved it to an acceptable external link). If you look up Brenizer Method you will see pages of specialist forums and articles referring to the technique as Brenizer. It isn't a new concept – as some of them point out – but one popularised because of the equipment used, notably a camera phone or generic digital camera. If the name has moved into common usage among a substantial group within the photography community – as this would suggest – then it exists and can be written about. I do agree that the previous edits had left the page looking more promotional than the original, so I'll keep an eye out in case more such promotion creeps in. I note that there is a separate article on PanoTools. Libby norman (talk) 09:16, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
