Gone are the old days…
Stitching panoramic photos used to be a pain. you’d have to do all kinds of prep on each photo in LIGHTROOM first, then export them as high res files, then create a stack in PHOTOSHOP and merge them…. and it’d probably go wrong at some stage!
The panoramic world has moved on
Happily, this has all moved on and you can stitch photos in seconds using LIGHTROOM and no other program.
If you start off with 2 photos like these:-
TOP PART OF PANORAMIC
BOTTOM PART OF PANORAMIC
Merge panoramic in seconds
Then open up Photo Merge (as shown in the video below) – Lightroom will do the rest for you.
You end up with a large shot, pretty square in this example, which you can then use in many ways – how about a tall portrait crop, or a square, or a traditional landscape orientation…
With the file never leaving LIGHTROOM, you can create dozens of versions if you like!
