Panorama_1.jpgMany people now own a smartphone of some kind that has a camera with the capability to shoot in panorama mode. They can produce a good quality picture while also making it very easy to use. However, there may come a time when the quality of the phone’s camera isn’t good enough. In that case, we turn to Photoshop.

Unlike the continuous motion used when taking a panorama with a smartphone, a photographer is required to take separate photos pivoting from one spot. These photos are then stitched together in Photoshop. Below is an example of the process that is taken.
