How I Edited This Panorama with Lightroom & Photoshop

Last week I showed you my Autumn woodland photo shoot, now I show you how I edited my panorama in Lightroom and photoshop, including making the autumn fall colours pop and adding a little Orton Effect.

**I have removed my image from Prodibi as… it was stolen (in a nice way) to show some security issues with the site. My apologies**

  • So basically you did post until the panorama looked nothing like it was in real life.

    I hope you’re shooting raw with a $500 camera.

  • Hey Thomas, have been enjoying your videos for a month now, thanks for that! I just didn't get why you did a panoramic shot in this particular case? It seemed that this photo could've been taken with wide angle length. Then you could've crop it. I am definitely missing something here..

  • why waste so much time for a perfect photo if you then edit it in the lightroom and change the whole initial view

  • Hiya Thomas. I shoot a lot of panoramas and frankly I am fed up with how crap lightroom and photoshop are at stitching panoramas – I generally have to mess around in the adaptive wide angle filter to sort the straight edges, uprights and horizontals out.

    I tried something called PTassembler – which was a bit like trying to fly a space shuttle or use a Nikon Camera (I am a Canon shooter fact fans…). So that was no solution.

    I have however found the solution – a fabulous piece of free software from Microsoft Research called Microsoft ICE. It has a lot more panoramic projections than Lr or Ps and I have been able to stitch everything I have thrown at it, including a number that Photoshop just went "Mleeuuuuughhhhhh" at.

    If you shoot a lot of panos, it is well worth a look. The only drawback is that it doesn't work on RAWs so if you are lazy like me, you need to get the white balance nailed before you start. But you should be nailing it in camera before you start anyway.

    Keep up the good work mate. I would love to see another rude comments video – trolling the trolls is great entertainment.

  • Hey Thomas, I tried doing a couple Panoramas last night but LR said it didn't have enough matching pictures. In hindsight, I probably didn't overlap the images enough for the software ot be able to stitch them together. Do you typically generously overlap the images?

  • Hi Thomas, I'm curious about the individual images themselves. Perhaps I missed it in a previous video, but how much overlap (if any) across images do you normally shoot when shooting a panorama? Does that question make any sense? Is there a general rule of thumb you stick to?

    Love your work.

  • Thomas, I know you don't need any more advice from the peanut gallery than you already get (which means I'll just give a helpful hint) so here it goes: Back in the day… one of the things we would do in reviewing our prints (images) would be to close our eyes for about 30 seconds then open our eyes with the print about arms length in front of us. Your eye will immediately go to any hot spots, or in short; your eye is going to go immediately to the area where your actual point of interest is. Although we know where we think it is, that is only because we want it to be there. By closing our eyes for that 30 seconds (and that is longer than we think) then opening them; you'll find your eyes will often times go somewhere else. It just allows you to dodge/burn or rework the image to have a better leading line or make changes. You will be amazed at how well it works if you aren't already doing something similar. Love your videos. For a film or digital photographer everyone should be able to take something from them

  • Love the tutorial. However, I don't see Photo Merge options in the new Lightroom CC anymore.

  • If you have a low resolution copy, unobtrusive watermark or trademark, disable right-click and disable hot linking, then that takes care of at least 90% of the image theft on the Internet. There's ways to get around all that and still steal the image, but the vast majority of would-be thieves will give up if the image can't be stolen easily.

  • Tom, awesome vid (as always).  Thanks for all your hard work and showing us the seemingly 'simple' tasks that make your work awesome.  Keep up the awesome work :).

  • I see that you have the LoupeDeck on your desk in this video. What do you think? Is it something that you're going to revisit?
