The only secret is a scanner with uniform illumination. The line along
which stitching is effected will have at most one point where the two
scans are truly conicident. An absolute difference in image brightness
is easily corrected; a difference varying along the seam will defeat any
software I've used. (However, I am using an ancient graphics program,
PicturePublisher. I own Photoshop, but have not needed to graduate to it.)
