Post Processing Digitally Stitched Panoramics

December 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Here is a quick post on how to create a digitally stitched panoramic image.

  1. Open all of your RAW files in Adobe Camera Raw and double check to make sure that each image has the same color balance and same exposure (it doesn’t have to be perfect but set the exposure to taste.) It is best to take panoramic images in manual mode so the camera doesn’t switch the white balance and ISO in the middle of your sequence.
  2. After you’ve opened your entire sequence in Photoshop, go to “File” __"Automate”__”Photomerge.
    1. 99% of the time I use Auto Layout.
    2. Hit the “Add Open Files” button
    3. Check “Blend Images Together,”
    4. Check “Vignette Removal” if applicable
    5. Check “Geometric Distortion Correction” if you’ve tried the above and there is parallax distortion.
    6. Hit okay.
    7. Open & drink entire beer while Photoshop takes it sweet time.
  3. Save as tiff
  4. Reopen in Adobe Camera to crop & fix the horizon and whatever else you’d normally correct.
