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..
I find it really hard to combine the images together because the end result from photo merge does not have the snap in function like the interactive layout. How can I bring back the interactive layout in Photoshop CC? I downloaded the Photometer plugin but error came up saying 'Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document'.
I'm working with a plugin that I need to edit the source code so it can run in NONINTERACTIVE mode. I have no problem compiling it from source - in fact have modified to suit our needs already - but cannot not grasp from GIMP documentation what modifications I need to make it run in NONINTERACTIVE mode. (We have very large images, need to batch process them ....)
My designers are rendering images in FormZ (CAD program). Form Z has no way to directly output an interactive PDF where you can see a 360 degree view.
FormZ support and lots of info I googled tell me to run it thru PS Extended 3D. It seems that PS CS6 removed the .u3d export function so it does not seem to work. I've tried to go back to CS5.1 but that brings the CAD file in as a smart object and loses the interactive function.
Is there a path thru for either 5.1 or 6? Bottom line is we have the CAD 3D/360 files. We want an interactive PDF where our customers can get that 360 view.
I am thinking of becoming an artist who uses photoshop but the problem is that my hands get cramped being on the computer too much. I was thinking of creating my own interactive whiteboard like Johnny Lee did with the Wiimote. But I don't know if it will work well i.e. will the IR pens not be enough for me to use because with a keyboard I will have ctrl alt and other function buttons.
I know you can design a button in Photoshop, but can you create one that is also interactive? Say if you wanted to do an animation in Photoshop and you wanted a button to go to the next part of the animation?
Should I be importing the gif into After Effects and add the button there? Not sure how it works.
I am pretty new to Adobe Premiere Pro (CS 5.5). Have played with it for a while, but now I want to make some more interavtive videoes, and I have been looking at the two videoes from Adobe covering this issue. My problem is that I don't have Photoshop, only Photoshop Element, and I cannot follow the instructions from adobe, since some of the options they use are not available in Photoshop Elements.
Is it possible to make interactive menus from Photoshop Elements, and if so, is there somewhere I can find an explanation on how to do it?
I've been using Ps CS6 for a couple of months now, and I occasionally used CS5.1 before that. I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with its lack of interactive feedback during many manipulations. A lack of feedback which is provided in applications costing a small fraction of the price. This is 2012, Ps is a leading graphics app in some ways, but in other ways it is pitifully like a relic from the early 1990s.
You have text on a path and you decide to transform that path with Free Transform (Cmd+T). The positions of the text characters don't update while you manipulate the path! You don't see the changes until confirming the transform command.
I took a series of photos (9 shot vertically) of the lobby of AKL. I made adjustments in Bridge (22.214.171.1244) 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?
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?
