Panorama of the "Shoreline" on Titan
The individual raw images were recorded by the DISR instrument of Huygens while parachuting down to the surface of Titan. They were recorded from different viewpoints and heights, so often geometrical corrections as well as brightness and contrast corrections were necessary to many of the images to fit into the final panorama, that was manually stitched in Photoshop. This panorama was also published in the Nature Review: "The four hundred years of planetary science since Galileo and Kepler" by Joseph A. Burns, Nature 466, 575–584 (2010)
