Photomerge using Adobe Photoshop
It is simple tutorial about photomerge – I just write this article because my friend ask me about merging his photographs into single landscape photograph. I just can write this article today because recently I busy for pre-wedding service. The photographs that I used in this article are taken by S.C.Dai (my friend) using Canon EOS 60D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS.
First, let see 5 photos before photomerge (similar with the cover of this article but in a little bit large size ^^).
In order to merge the photo, you can use Photoshop (there are many ways but in this article I just explain the way by using Photoshop). Open Photoshop then go to File > Automate > Photomerge. After that you will see this dialog box:
You can try “layout” option in the left part of dialog box (each option produce different result). I usually check blend images together as default. For vignette removal, I don’t think to check this option for this example (but maybe for different case, I will check it). I also prefer to correct geometric distortion later so I don’t need to check that option for this case.
Photoshop may require some time to process photomerge, so just wait and the result will be like this one:
The horizon of the sea level is not good IMHO, so I try to rotate a little bit. The result is like this one:
After that I crop the photos:
A little bit correction for geometric distortion, simply just use Filter > Lens Correction, then adjust remove distortion value in geometric distortion part. The result will be like this:
I hope you like this simple tutorial…. Comments are really appreciated. Thanks for visiting my blog and website.
