Panoramic images are made by stitching more than one picture with another. There are numerous software applications to accomplish this, but you may already own one that works really well – Adobe Photoshop. Many video producers use panoramas to zoom and pan within a larger stitched image at higher-than-video resolution.
In this article, How To Stitch Panoramic Photos with Adobe Photoshop Richard Harrington of Photofocus steps you through using Photomerge – a powerful tool within the world's most popular imaging software.
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.
