The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers If you've taken the time to get your pano set up right during the shoot (in other words, you used a tripod and overlapped the shots by about 20% to 30% each), you can have Photoshop's Photomerge feature automatically stitch your panoramic images together. If you handheld your camera for the pano shoot, you can still use Photomerge--you'll just have to do most of the work manually. Automated Pano Stitching with Photomerge Step One: Open the photos that you want Photomerge to stitch together as one panoramic image. In the example shown here, I opened three shots in Photoshop. Note: Be sure to open your images con- secutively in the order you want to stitch them together. ©SCOTT KELBY Step Two: There are two ways to access Photomerge: (1) Go under Photoshop's File menu, under Automate, and choose Photomerge (as shown here), or (2) in the Adobe Bridge you can Command- click (PC: Control-click) on the photos you want to stitch, then go under the Bridge's Tools menu, under Photoshop, and choose Photomerge.
