creating panoramic photos

  bigduvat 17:08 27 Oct 2010

can I create a panoramic photo using photoshop 7 from 6 or seven separate photos.?

I cant exactly remember details of PS 7. but I would create a blank canvass of the size you want, then open all the photos. Then in turn, go to each, then Select, all, edit , copy. Then go to the blank canvas and "edit", Paste" - thus creating a layer. Then do the same with each. Then using the move tool line up the layers and fiddle with the opacity etc . Finally you could flatten the image.

I have been trying Microsofts free ICE (Image composite editor) and have been impressed.

I have not used Photoshop for this purpose, or Panorama Plus, BUT I can certainly recommend the free MS ICE suggested by mooly.

I have used it extensively, and its easy to use & very good.

Here is an example I just made made with 7 images:

Glad you liked the picture. Please remember a couple of rules when taking pictures for panoramas:

1: Allow about a 25% overlap for each shot.

2: Keep the camera as level as possible when taking every shot.

I generally find that a horizontal format works better than vertical.
