This paper proposes an innovative method to create high-quality seamless planar mosaics. The developed pipeline ensures good robustness against many common mosaicking problems (e.g., misalignments, colour distortion, moving objects, parallax) and differs from other works in the literature because a global approach, known as <i>synchronization</i>, is used for image registration and colour correction. To better conceal the mosaic seamlines, images are cut along specific paths, computed using a
