Creating a Panorama in Photoshop

Panoramic images capture vast landscapes or cityscapes in a single sweeping view, offering a broader perspective than standard photos. By stitching together multiple shots, a seamless panorama reveals intricate details and the grandeur of a scene. Here's how to assemble a panorama in Photoshop:


  1. Adobe Photoshop.
  2. A series of overlapping images, ideally captured on a tripod to ensure consistent height and angle.


1. Prepare the Workspace

  • Launch Photoshop.
  • Navigate to File -> Automate -> Photomerge.

2. Select Images

  • In the Photomerge window, click on Browse and select the series of overlapping images intended for the panorama.

3. Choose a Layout

  • Auto is often sufficient, but other options like Cylindrical or Spherical can be explored based on the scene's nature.

4. Blending and Stitching

  • Ensure Blend Images Together is checked. This allows Photoshop to automatically blend and stitch the images seamlessly.

5. Merge Layers

  • Once the panorama is created, right-click on the layers in the Layers panel and choose Merge Layers.

6. Crop and Reframe

  • Due to the nature of stitching, some areas may appear irregular. Use the Crop Tool to refine and reframe the panorama.

7. Adjustments for Consistency

  • Apply necessary adjustments like Brightness/Contrast, Levels, or Saturation to ensure uniformity across the panoramic image.

8. Sharpen (Optional)

  • Navigate to Filter -> Sharpen -> Unsharp Mask to enhance details.

9. Save the Panorama

  • Choose File -> Save As to store the completed panoramic image in the desired format.


Stitching a panorama in Photoshop combines individual images into a broader, cohesive view, delivering a visually striking representation of vast scenes. The technique, when mastered, opens avenues for capturing and showcasing places in their full glory.
