4 Ways to Display a Panorama Image

Special and expensive equipment does a pretty good job at obtaining a good panorama image, but spending a fortune is not the only way to include great panoramas in a photography portfolio. Here are a few hints for panorama images with cheaper equipment:

1. Choose a Vista

Visualizing the final image is essential because the pictures must be taken accordingly, with an overlap in each shot. Panoramas are not all the time horizontal; they can also follow a vertical line.

2. Stitch the Parts

Create a backup of the images you use in case of “accidents.” The special software will automatically stitch the selected images for you. For Photoshop users, the stitching process is different because it requires layers to match the edges of each image. The process is manual and it takes longer, but the satisfaction is guaranteed.

3. Crop to Match

Crop the edges to tidy up the panorama image. Then, enlarge the image so that you can immediately spot any differences of color and manually adjust them. Photoshop’s “lasso” tools are very appreciated for their tonal adjustment characteristics.

4. Adjust the Characteristics of the Panorama Image

Take care of details like saturation, D-lightning and contrast. This is the “cosmetic” part of obtaining a good panorama image, so take your time to create the desired effects.
