    PhotoShop CS has a new feature to merge a number of photos into one
    panoramic view. This feature is not available in PhotoShop 7. And for the
    occasional panoramic view and at the price, CS is not in my immediate
    future.

    Any PhotoShop "wizards" out there who can tell me how to
    photostitch/photomerge in Photoshop 7?

    Thanks.

    Create a New_Image approximately the size that you think the resultant
    panorama is going to be. You can Crop it later. Bring each image into a
    separate Layer. Create a Layer Mask for each (but the first). Using the Move
    Tool (and Opacity set well below 100% for the Layer being moved), position the
    Layers. Size each Layer as might be necessary, correcting any angular mis-
    alignment. Using Adjustment Layers on each image Layer, correct any exposure
    or color difference. Once you have everything arranged, lined up, and
    corrected to match (I start with one side of the composite and correct it,
    then move one Layer away and correct it to match), go to the Layer Masks and
    paint out the overlap, until you are satisfied with the transition. If, when
    you are done with a Layer, it needs additional correction, you can go back to
    the Adjustment Layers. When done, save as PSD, then Flatten Layers, and
    Save_As whatever you wish. Note: v7 has size limitations, that CS handles as
    regards file size, and dimensions.

    Also, there are several shareware/freeware pano-makers available, but I
    haven't used any of them, so I only commented on v7.

    If you get these files (from Elements Tryout etc) you can have PhotoMerge in
    PS7.

    PhotomergeAuto.8li Automate folder

    PhotomergeRender.8BF Filters folder
    PhotoMergeUl.8BF Filters folder
