One of my favorite styles of image is a panoramic photo. Creating this type of image in Photoshop is super easy thanks to the Photomerge command. You can take several images and combine them into a seamless panoramic image. You can use Photomerge to combine images that are tiled horizontally, vertically, or both..
Use the following steps to merge overlapping photos into a single panoramic image.
- In Photoshop, Choose File > Automate > Photomerge. You can also invoke this command from within Lightroom for a selected group of images (right-click > Edit In > Merge to Panorama in Photoshop).
- Click the Use pop-up menu and choose Files (to select individual images) or Folders (to choose an entire folder).
- Click the Browse button and navigate to the files or folder you want to use.
- Choose the following options:
- Blend Images Together to have Photoshop attempt to seamlessly blend exposure and color.
- Vignette Removal to correct for any natural lens vignetting (darkening) at the edges.
- Geometric Distortion Correction to repair any lens distortion (often caused when shooting at a wider angle).
Disclaimer: This is just one workflow for panoramic images.
