Automated Pano Stitching with Photomerge

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 15 to 20% each), then you can have Photoshop CS’s new “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.

Step One.
Open the photos that you want Photomerge to stitch together as one panoramic image. In the example shown here, I had three shots already open in Photoshop.
