Introducing Boundary Warp

Stitched panoramas are often created with areas of white or have no image data on the outer edges (as shown below) (Images were created from Lightroom CC 2015.4 / 6.4)

There are several ways to handle these results. A crop could be applied to the image either inside Lightroom or Photoshop. However, this can potentially result in loosing some important image details near the edges of the image. Another approach is to use Content Aware Fill in Photoshop and create new pixel data from surrounding areas of the image. However, this process may require several attempts to obtain a satisfying, smooth, artefact free image.

Lightroom CC 2015.4, introduces the Boundary Warp feature. Boundary wary has been designed to analyze the  edges of the working stitch, and allows warping of the image so that removes the areas where no data exists. In the following image, Boundary Warp has been applied to make a great panoramic result.
