I took a series of photos (9 shot vertically) of the lobby of AKL. I made adjustments in Bridge (184.108.40.2064) then choose Photomerge through tools in Bridge to process the pano in CS4 (11.0). The images were processed for the natural light. Follow the link to see what CS4 came up with. The files were .dng processed with CS3. I have made many other photomerges using this combo, but this is first to achieve this type of result. In CS4, I used the vignette and distortion options.
Just created a panorama out of 4 jpegs (together about 33MB) and saved it as jpeg. Now I want to create another panorama out of 10 jpegs (together about 73MB), it worked fine, but I can't save it in jpg format. CS3 only offers .psb, raw or tif.
I tried 4 times consequently to stitch 4 images in Photomerge activated from Bridge - with same settings (auto and defaults i.e. blending images on, vignette removal off, distortion correction off). I was surprised of the result because each time I tried PS generated different panorama. Just to make sure I thoroughly checked if the stitch settings were really the same - they were... Am I missing something essential?
When I have two or more photos open and I want to move them around, everytime I drag one over the other it becomes transparent. This transparency seems to happen once I drag the photo over the ruler but I could be wrong. Once I release the mouse button the two merge into one photo. I believe this has something to do with the photo merge feature. Can I turn this off?
I've seen recent posts about Photo merge crashing, I tried all the workarounds and remedies to no success. I run as Admin and still crashes, and only Photo merge is causing to crash. All other presets and automates are working just fine. I've deleted all Temp files and App Data, still nothing.
My stats are:
Windows 7 Professional Intel i7 vPro (2860Qm @ 2.5GHz) 16GB Ram Nvidia Quadro 2000M (lastest drivers, 266.96) Scratch disk is 200GB and I'm using about 9GB of Ram
So I don't think it's my computer that's the problem, but either the java script file for the automate or possible update?
Photoshop CS5 crashes when I try to use photo merge. Is there anything I can do so this wont happen?? Now I can't make panorama pictures. It's on my laptop it doesn't work. Samsung laptop with Windows 7. It works on my stationary computer with Windows Vista. I have the same version of PS CS5 on both computers.
The Photomerge in Photoshop CS4E is a fantastic tool when it gets it right, but what can you do when it doesn't? I've got a bunch of 9 images (in a "Noughts and Crosses" or "Tic Tac Toe" layout), all with 50% overlap, but a lot of fairly blank areas - this can't be avoided, they are nautical charts. When I do Auto Photomerge on these, a couple of the images get put in the wrong place. Is there a way to position the images in their approximate place, then get Photoshop to finish the job automatically?
cs3 had this option when creating a photomerge that made it so much easier to combine several photos when cs3 got lost in trying to merge.
I looked and looked in cs4 for the interactive command, so much simpler than grabbing the eraser and opacity, but I could not find the interactive addition for photomerge. Has it been moved or what ? IIRC in cs3 it was interactive from bridge..
When using the Photomerge tool in CS3 to do merges of 10+ images (10MP RAW), the process almost always stops at the blending step. Images are laid out properly, but the edges are not blended. Is there a particular reason for this? System has 3GB RAM, running XP (SP3).
Note that for smaller merges, the process completes fine.
I'd also be curious to know if the Photomerge facility has been improved in CS4. It works well enough, but on a dual-core 2GHZ system, it still can take 5 minutes to do an 8 image photomerge.
I have read and understood the Photomerge tool (and tried the process with the sample images that are in CS2). All this seems to be fine except for a couple of things...
1. To achieve 180 degrees I am going to need more than 3 images right? (overlapping each image by 15%-40%).
a. Can Photomerge in CS2 work with more than 3 images, or is 3 the maximum??
If 3 is the maximum, then it wouldn't be difficult to just increase the canvas width and add on? Or not? Or do 2 sets of 3 then hand stitch those together? What is the best process for achieving 180??
Also, I like to shoot just before sunset,usually. If I did a 180, say with the sun setting in the right hand side of the image, then panned to the left snapping as I go, I am obviously going to get different gradients of blue in the sky, (lighter sky to the right, a darker sky to the left)
Should I shoot in Manual or Aperture?
How will I get the tones in the sky to be seemless?. As long as I overlap by 15% - 40% all should be good?
What is the best process for achieving equal exposure in all shots?
My new instal of CS3 does not have FILE|Automate|Photomerge showing as an option. It did previously. It also lacks the icon to shift to Bridge. When I use the File command to start Bridge I get an error message about missing a JAVA script.
When I start Bridge (which appears to work) and try to send files to CS3 for Photomerge, it tells me that CS3 busy and asks if I want to queue up the work (even if CS3 is open).
This has happened a number of times now, both in CS3 and CS4. When I run the process as I normally do for a motomerge, the process goes along swimmingly until the output stage where the image is closed and nothing is left for me. I don't close the image and I have no idea why it does.
I have used photomerge successfully before, so Im unsure of what the problem is.
I have done a photomerge in PS CS6 of two birds in flight as the wings are clipped. The images merge nicely but the problem is that the blurred bird has been placed on top of the sharp bird, i.e. the top layer (bird with blurred eye) is blocking the bottom sharp bird. I have clicked and dragged the bottom layer to the higher position on the layers panel but the images do not swap positions.
I'm getting this error message when I try to use photomerge. I'm using CS5, and this is the first time I'm trying to use photomerge. I've tried several different photos but I'm always getting this message.
I am often photomerging large sets of RAW images (8 to up 30 images at a time). Yesterday, I photomerged 25 images (each image is about 14MB) together. Before the photomerge ran, I had 35 GB HD space available. After the Photomerge finished and after saving it, I had 8 GB of HD space left. The saved image was about 880 MB total. Thinking the space would be recovered after I quit Photoshop and emptied the trash, I only had 27 GB of HD.
Therefore, Where did my 8 GB of HD space go? 35 GB to 27 GB, having saved a file that is 880MB. After restarting my computer and verifying the trash was emptied, my HD space was still at 27 GB.
cs4 - working from Bridge - I select 3-5 files and go to photomerge. I keep getting the message "photomerge needs at least two files selected" from photoshop. How can I get photoshop to see what bridge is telling it?
I just took three images of a sunset so that I could create a panorama image. When I use photomerge in photoshop cs6, only two images merge together and the third image is left by itself. I overlapped each image a sufficient amount but I still can't merge the third image.
Here is a screenshot of the end result. Am I not overlapping enough, or is there something I am doing wrong?
up until now, I had no problems with photomerge. Recently, worked on about 800 images in CC, about 30 of them merges, with no problems at all. However, this changed today, as I tried to merge 2 images. PS kept on hanging half way trough the process, the only to stop was through task manager.
Rebooted the PC and tried others - which I had merged before - with the same result. It doesn't matter from where I open them. The only thing I have done since the others, is uninstall CS6. There doesn't appear to be a way to repair the installation, or at least none that I am aware of.
I've been trying to make this feature to work since PS CS5 and now PS CS6:When you select more than a couple of images in Bridge and want to run the PS / Photomerge , then you get a dialog where "Layout auto" and "Blend images together" by default are checked; if you continue, you`ll end up in PS with layers which are OK in Alignment but not in blending.Whereas if you turn off the "Blend images together" then you´ll end up blending the images manually by means of the "edit / auto blend" and there it will work fine. In this case I´m trying to blend different images to expand my depth of field.I wonder if Adobe is aware of this that has been running badl for over 3 versions of PS now.
I recently bought Photoshop CS6. Previously, I used Photoshop Elements 10. One nice feature of PSE was the Photo merge Scene Cleaner that Photoshop CS6 doesn't seem to offer.
What is the best or simplest way of achieving the same (i.e. blending two images and removing an object from one of the images) in Photoshop CS6?
My first try was to load the photos into a stack and let Photoshop arrange the layers and then use layer masks to hide the unwanted object from the image. However, I found the result less convincing (without investing more time in fine-tuning the result) than with the easy-to-use Photo merge Scene Clear assistant in PSE 10. Maybe it was just this particular set of images (one issue I noticed is that the stacking script did not compensate for vignetting in the images leading to hard transitions between the two photos).
I need my Photomerge CS 6 for stitching many Panels. Normaly it works not Problems with the Performance (32 GB Ram, powerful Mac Pro).
Today I have the Problem that the Software match the Pictueres, but does not Show the results, you see only a black Window with no Pictures at all, only the normal Window from the PS when you start teh software.
In renamde all Files I can found in the Libary, but I can´t found the the ecpellillay PS Temp Datei.
- recently i acquired a Canon 5D3, and was testing the photomerge function in Photoshop 5.1 (64-bit) - after importing into LR4.4, right click the photos and direct them to edit in Merge to Panorama in Photoshop - the popup "This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in version 7.4 for full compatibility" came up - selected Open Anyway and the Photoshop layout opened, after clicking OK, it doesn't do anything... - photo dimensions: 5760x3840 - so I then I tried opening my older photos from the Canon EOS XSi and used exactly the same steps to get some photos to photomerge and everything went smoothly without issues - after importing into LR4.4, right click the photos and direct them to edit in Merge to Panorama in Photoshop - the popup "This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in version 7.4 for full compatibility" came up - selected Open Anyway and the Photoshop layout opened, after clicking OK, it stitches two photos up without issues... - photo dimensions: 4272x2848
I have thought of reinstalling Photoshop, however if the old photos work fine but not the new ones, maybe reinstall won't make any difference?
I shot landscape images for a panorama of 4 rows with 6 images in each row. The first image on the top row includes the top of a tree, but the other 5 images only has sky. Photomerge will not merge the 5 images of the top row because it only has sky in the image. I can merge the bottom 4 rows without a problem and can include the first image on the top row, but not the others.
I'd like to stitch together a panorama out of raw images in Photoshop CS5. The problem is, that I don't want the result to be a 8-bit jpeg. I want to have a raw image that keeps all the information the original raw images had so that I can modify contrast, white balance etc. later on.I can't figure out, how to use the Photomerge tool on raw images and have a 16-bit result. It seems to me like Photoshop automatically compresses the result into 8-bit and erases valuable information irreversibly.
I use Photoshop CS5 Extended (from the CS5 Production Premium) on a Windows 7 64-bit Desktop.
I would like to use photomerge to blend two pictures together. The only thing is, when I put them together, the colours mix, which I do not want to do. Basically, there is a red image and a blue image that I would like to join together, where in between them, there is a gradual change of colour. Is there a way of doing this?
I am pretty sure that I am using the wrong method of doing it, and that there is an easier way of doing it. could someone please enlighten me on this?
