A Photographers Guide to Perfect Panoramas
- Take as many photos as required to capture the panorama you want. You dont need to worry about having a tripod, as long as the frame of each shot slightly overlaps. We recommend taking vertical pictures rather than horizontal as it reduces lens distortion which will give you a sharper image.

- Open Photoshop. Select File, then Automate, then Photomerge
- In the pop up window select your desired images.
- Photoshop will then generate a panorama from your selected images. BOOM! Magic!
