Panoramas are pretty easy to do; just stand in one spot and start taking photos from left to right, the key is to ensure you overlap* the photos. Then with the right software**, I use Photoshop CS3, you just upload the photos and hit a button and the software does it for you. The photo won’t be a standard 8 x 10 and you will have to crop around the edges since they won’t be even.

* Overlap: Take your first picture; to overlap make sure you get at least ¼ of the photo from the previous photo into your next shot. If you don’t then you will have to hand piece your photos together to make a panorama. It may seem like you are taking about 25 photos or more to get the entire picture you want but this is the only way it will work.

** Software: Under “File” select “Automate” and then select “Photomerge.” Then select “browse” and get the photos you want to use and up load them. Select “OK” and let the program do its magic, this will take a few minutes especially when using a lot of photos.
