    I have PS 2 Elements and wish to match color.
    I have 3 pictures (landscapes) that I want to merge into a panorama. They all
    slightly overlap. I wish to match the color of all 3. I fixed the 1st one
    properly by using the eyedropper tool to make an area grey (some rocks).
    There are no other grey areas or rocks in the other 2 pictures. However, the
    areas that overlap consist of trees and ground. Is there a way that I can
    take an area of trees or ground in one picture and make the same trees and
    ground in the next picture the same color.

    When I move the cursor over the colors I want to match, the RGB readings change
    a lot. Can I take a small area (say 25 x 25 pixels) and get an average reading
    in the correct (1st picture) and transform that reading to the identical
    reading in the 2nd picture?

    Iam a beginner in PS and don't use layers yet. I am familiar with curves,
    levels, and other color management tools.

    Thanks for any advice on the above, Rick
