This is a simple tutorial on how to create panoramas in Photoshop (in my case version 7, but applies to any Photoshop from version 6 up).
“Quick Mask” is an extremely powerful, yet often neglected and forgotten, feature of Photoshop. It is a very simple and fast way to create complex selections.
Ever since I bought my first digital camera (in January 2005, haha), I always wanted to make my own panoramas. It was just a “stupid” M307 HP compact. So you can imagine – no manual settings, only presets available for white balance; the usual lot you get when you don’t know yet what all you need, and don’t wanna spend too much money on something you have no idea if you’ll ever need.
But then again, there’s always Photoshop to fix anything that went wrong, right?
So, even with photos that each has different exposure and white balance, you can still make panoramas that look at least decent.
Well, I’m writing all this self-praise to say something else – I was always planning on writing a small guide/tutorial on how to make panoramas in Photoshop, but I never knew if it wouldn’t be just a loss of time. So, if anyone’s interested, just let me know, and I can put something simple together as a page here.
