170. Create a Panorama


If a landscape is too vast to capture in a single image, take several overlapping images instead and use the Editor to blend the images into a single, wide panorama. Good panoramas start with good images: First, set your camera on a tripod and make sure that the camera is level with the horizon. Then white balance the camera and adjust the exposure for the conditions in which you are shooting. If your digital camera has a feature called Stitch Assist, Panorama, or AE Lock, turn it on because that will help you get an even exposure throughout your series of images. If your digital camera also comes with AF Lock, turn it on as well because it will lock in the focus and make the depth of field consistent throughout your images. As you take your photos, be sure to overlap them by about 30%. After you copy the separate images to your computer, follow the steps in this task to stitch them together into a panorama.
