This is a shot – well actually its 7 images shot of Blue Lake at St Bathans when I was there a year ago.
I have taken several lots of shots to assemble into a panorama but the software I tried to do it in quite defeated me and so with this image I never bothered. Until now with the new Pano Merge feature in LR6!
Be warned it is SLOW – it takes a while to assemble the preview and then even longer to actually save it, but it is totally worth it!
Why? Because I was then able to edit the whole complete merged image within LR as ONE image which was the problem I had before. I couldn’t figure out how to do that, and consequently colours were patchy and inconsistent.
When I bought my new Acratech tripod head late last year, I specifically bought the one that has capability of working in Pano mode, and I got a rail so I could shoot properly, accounting for parallax, but til now never bothered to set it up. Now I will.
I am SO happy to have this functionality, as a landscape photographer sometimes to do a place full justice you need to shoot at a certain scale and then assemble the images later as a panorama. Now with this great new feature in LR6 I can and it WORKS!
