Amazing Panoramas in 10 Easy Steps with Adobe Photoshop CC

Here’s a quick video I put together showing how to create incredible panorama images in ten easy steps, using Adobe Photoshop CC.  I captured this one on Monday in a sunrise session in Richmond, VA with a DJI Phantom and GoPro.

…and the ten steps are:

  1. Go get some awesome shots! – Just be sure that you’re in the same location and there is overlap between each shot
  2. Use Lens Correction to remove lens distortion
  3. Load all images as layers in the same PSD
  4. Use auto-align and auto-blend to make a seamless composition
  5. Fix perspectives with the Adaptive Wide Angle filter
  6. Fix blending seams
  7. Use the Liquify filter to straighten the horizon (use a really big brush)
  8. Crop and use Content-Aware Fill or Clone Stamp to fix the edges
  9. Apply the Camera RAW filter to put more life into your image
  10. Export and Share!

Here’s the image that I composed in that video…


Just click it to view an interactive full-scale panorama that you can zoom into.  (Exported from Photoshop using the Zoomify for HTML template I previously blogged.)
