Quick test of CS3 Panorama function...

... and WOW, how easy was this...? Nothing special with the image I'm afraid as today was a rather dull day, very little sunshine and quite bland light. I couldn't easily find a good location for a decent set of panoramic images where we went with the dogs this afternoon, but managed to take a series of 6 shots across a certain area of the walk, enough to give approx 180deg field of view.

Simply selected File>Automate>Photomerge, selected the directory where i had saved my 6 jpg's, and pressed go. Simple as that...



I am seriously impressed with this pano function. Can you spot the stitches...? I can't.

The current software to create these panoramas is really superb. I have created a few and could hardly believe how they blend together so neatly.

I like your shot but I am glad you said it was spanning approx 180 deg. The road would have a dreadfully tight hairpin bend, just out of image at the bottom, otherwise.

Yes, Adobe improved the pano function by a wide margin in CS3 compared to CS2.

The joins are complex and not just straight lines which helps conceal the joins very well.

Looks a nice walk to take the dogs for a walk.

Thanks Peter - the shot's nothing really, just a quick fire off of 6 images at 14mm with the 14-54mm lens. We were at a higher point earlier on the walk, but there were more trees covering the views.

I am seriously impressed with the panorama function in CS3, it was so easy to use. I have never really considered taking a series of shots to comprise a panorama before now; it will be something I'll certainly consider when out with my camera now.

I agree... a very tight hairpin indeed eh...
