Sometimes my camera lens isn’t up to the task of capturing a scene. Phone cameras have a mode where you can create a wide photograph by panning your phone as you take the picture. But some times you need more than wide and skinny. Photoshop has solved this problem with its Photomerge™ feature. With photomerge, it will automatically line up multiple photographs and blend them together. If you are using Lightroom, all you need to do is select all photos, right-click and select Edit In > Merge to Panorama in Photoshop…
Adobe recommends the following when taking the pictures that you overlap the photographs by 40% and for each photo
- Use the same focal length
- Stay in the same position
- Maintain the same exposure.
This image is the composite of four photographs taken yesterday near Desert View Watchtower, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. I used a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 24-70mm ƒ/2.8 S lens (Handheld, 1/320 sec at ƒ/5.0, ISO 100, 24mm, Circular Polarizer Filter). I edited the image in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
