    Hi mothballmerc

    You can make panos as long as you have a series of shots with overlap ( usually i make about 20% overlap ) . Softwares such as photomerge function in PS can merge for ya and correct the distortions reasonably well. *But be sure you remove any pol filters, and your white balance and stuffs constant, basically all else constant for all pieces.

    The stitch might get a little less than perfect with moving items in your pan such as people walking, clouds, water. ( i had my fair share of misalignments because of that. but also with some luck at times )

    E.g

    * with a faster shutter speed freezing the water motion, i am bound to get problems

    The puritans will tell ya best results if you can anchor on a tripod and with a pan head, locate the entrance pupil fo your lens. While finding the entrance pupil of your own lens is a homework u can do before the trip, the setup was so tedious that i dropped the idea after attempting it in Europe.

    Alternatively you can get a shift lens to stitch

    You can check with Hazmee.
    He has some really impressive pan shots that i would love to learn too

    Great pano there giantcanopy! and also useful info!

    Anyway, i'm trying to create pano shots also and a friend directed me to an Adobe site teaching you how to stitch the pictures together.

    Here is it - http://www.adobe.com/education/digki..._panorama.html

    It says CS3 but CS2 also has this function

    Cheers!

    constant ISO, shutter speed, aperture, try not to use auto WB, overlap around 30%, shoot verticals and mount on a tripod. best to have an L-bracket

    personally, ive had some really bad experiences with photomerge in photoshop CS2, and if ur shots arent perfect, its not easy to merge
    i use a $100 software, and i find it wonderful. compensates for all the flaws in brightness falloff, barrel distortion and sharpening too

    The Photomerge in CS2 was horrible. I tried on my workplace copy and i got abit frustrated.
    But CS3 works great.

    oh yeah. i tried the cs3 trial but forgot abt trying photomerge

    $100 software - the pano factory; bought it the day the new version came out and i didnt even realise until after that (not advertising for them or anyth)
