Photoshop CS4 Photomerge

In the new CS4, there are some minor improvements to the Photomerge function, including the new collage option. Jay Kinghorn goes over the different ways of bringing your images into photomerge, the layout options, and some quick tips for creating better quality panoramas.

    Sorry for the lengthy delay in responding to your comment. I’ve been out of the country. It sounds like there may be a problem with the installation of the Photomerge plugin. Your best bet is probably to reinstall Photoshop to ensure the Photomerge plugin is installed in the correct location and accessible from both Bridge and PS.

    I apologize for the lengthy delay in responding to your comment. I’ve been out of the country. You can manually adjust the layout of images in PSCS4 Extended using the Auto-Align/Auto-Blend method. Scroll through my comments above for more detailed suggestions on how to best accomplish this.

    Best regards,

  • Excellent tutorial, and I have seen a few. Maybe you can give me a tip on a problem I am having. I keep getting a nice panorama that leaves one picture out. The final result has it there, but it is not attached to the rest of the otherwise fine rendering. What causes this and what can I do to correct it?
