Tips for creating panorama in PS CS6
« on: February 20, 2014, 08:46:34 PM »
This is an open question to all  the members. Please contribute whatever you know about creating panorama using PS CS6. I don't know much regarding this and the only time I created panorama using CS6 was a pretty straightforward job of stitching three shots horizontally. Now I want to know further, especially I want to know how to create matrix panorama. Please suggest only photoshop tutorials. I know fotomatix is good for creation of panoramas but I don't want to learn it afresh.

I am trying to explain what matrix panorama is. Consider the attached image. Suppose I take individual pictures of each of the frames and later on, stitch the frames together to form the whole image. Now thats matrix panorama AFAIK (not just horizontal or vertical stitching, but creating a whole image part by part). Hope I am able to explain my question.

And please share your tutorial Ayaz. All of your tutorials are excellent and have personally helped me a lot.
