Tips for Creating Panoramas in Adobe Camera Raw

Click here to watch how to create raw Panoramas images in Camera Raw 9.0.

Below are additional tips for creating raw Panoramas image in Camera Raw 9.0.

• If you have made adjustments to the individual images prior to choosing Photo Merge > Panorama, not all of them carry over to the merged file. For example, if you have made local adjustments – such as applying the radial or a graduated filter, or painting in selective areas with the adjustment brush on individual exposures, those adjustments will not be applied to the merged file! Because of this, I would suggest that you don’t spend a great deal of time making adjustments to each of the individual exposures but, instead, merge the images and then make adjustments to the resulting Panorama image.

• The settings that are NOT copied over from individual exposures to the merged panorama are:

– Lens Corrections/Upright (with the exception of Defringe settings), since the merge tool is changing geometric attributes, and does not copy over existing geometric settings.

– Local Corrections

– Red Eye

– Spot Healing

– Upright

– Crop

• If you make adjustments to an individual exposures that can be copied over to the merged file (such as conversion to B/W or Split Toning adjustments) , make sure that the exposure with the adjustments is the “most selected” image.

Command + Shift + M (Mac) | Control + Shift + m (Win) will run Photo Merge > Panorama based on the last used settings (without displaying the Merge preview window).

• By default Camera Raw appends the file name with -Pano. You can change this in the Camera Raw Preferences.

• Post-merge, lens profiles don’t make any sense to apply to panoramas, so the feature is disabled.

Tap “1” to select Spherical

Tap “2” to select Perspective

Tap “3” to select Cylindrical

• There is a size limit of 65,000 pixels on the long side of a file or, 512 MP – whichever comes first.

Adobe Announces Camera Raw 9.0 – Raw Merging of Panoramas and HDR Images!

Discover how easy it is to create high dynamic range images as well as stitch panoramas together using the new PhotoMerge technology within Adobe Camera Raw. Prior to this release, merging multiple exposures of the same scene into a single file had to be done in Photoshop as a pixel based document. But now, Adobe Camera Raw is able to merge the raw image data from multiple source files so that the resulting image contains all of the desired shadow, midtone, and highlight information WITH all of the editing flexibility that comes with raw! For more information, be sure to watch the videos below:

LR3 – Panoramas Don’t Import into Lightroom

Recently I received a question from a customer asking why some of his panoramas would import into Lightroom yet others did not. As it turns out, if you are working with panoramas (or any images) that are greater than  65000 pixels (on the long side) they are too large for Lightroom.
