Here’s the first pano I’ve stitched together since I upgraded to Photoshop CS4, consisting of 9 images I took from the 20th floor balcony at the Hyatt Maui Regency last September. While the process for PhotoMerge in CS4 isn’t that much different, what few new options they do have and whatever improvements they might have made behind the scenes seem to have worked better than what I was used to in CS3.
Having a newly installed OS certainly helped the speed of it, too. 🙂
The source images for this set were taken a little later in the morning, which meant the sky was more blown out than I had hoped. A few minutes after capturing these images, I dropped the frame down taking out the sky and filling the frame with just the resort areas below. I used those captures for this HDR shot instead, which I was really happy with.
