This photo was made by taking 5 consecutive shots on a tripod from left to right and then fusing them together using the panarama tool in PS. Then the photo was cropped down to where it fit inside of the framed work of the panarama. Worked colors and contrast also in PS. -Bald Rock at Fairfield Lk

simply beautifull...unfortunatelly the stiching points are quite visible where the forest meets the sky, but these can be easily corrected in ps...cheers #2030501

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm going to put this one back on the drawing board for a rework. #2032852

Remarkable! I'm so eager to try stitching pics together like this, but I have yet to find a good subject nearby. This is amazing, and the still surface of the water with the trees around it is just beautiful! #2049202

Greg Briley level-addict November 08, 2005

Thanks, Chris. The stitching tool is very easy to use. I am going to rework this one a bit, but I love nice panaramas. It gives you so much more to look at. #2050819

Wow, you are really developing wonderfully. Hope you have found a way to make a living with your camera! One thought for you in the rework: try to straighten the horizon with the measure/rotate arbitrary feature in PS. Killer Shot though! Remember me when you're famous. #2138404

Congrates Greg. This is very pretty.
I myself is working on a panorama but first I don't know the dimensions of the frame. My second problem is that I didn't use tripod and now I get a narrow height because of cropping. My image size in PS is , height 9 inches and don't belive it, is 78 inches. I stitched 7 or 8 images of smokies mountains. Is there anyway I can fix this. I appreciate your help. #2635246

Greg Briley level-addict April 12, 2006

Hi, Sobia. Thank you for stopping by. This picture is my only experience with stitching photos together so far. 78" wide is quite the image. You should be able to reduce the size of the picture in the image menu in PS and choose the image size option. This should allow you to adjust the size of the photo. Good luck with it and thanks again for stopping by! #2637277
