Take pictures for Photomerge

Photographs play a significant role in drawing and composing panoramas. To avoid any recurring malfunction, the following mentioned guidelines can serve of great use.


Images should not overlap while taking photos with Photomerge. The approx overlapping ratio should not exceed up to 40% or more. If your images overlap around 70% then in this case these images will not be suitable to be blended in Photomerge. It is advised to keep the images overlapping distinctive and synchronic.

One Focal Length

While using a zoom lens, don’t change the focal length, while taking your pictures.

Camera Level

Photomerge can easily process rotation between pictures. A simple tilt from any angle can result in a large placement error during the assembling process of Panorama Image. A tripod with a rotating head can efficiently align every angle of the image.

Stable Position

Do not intend to change places while taking pictures, as this can make the images deviate from the central viewpoint which needs to be highlighted within the panorama image. Optical Viewfinder helps to keep the viewpoint in place and focused.

  2. In the Photomerge dialog box, choose any function that you wish to run. Likewise as mentioned below:

With a perspective tool, you can transform images accordingly from repositioned, stretched, or even skewed to match images during layout.


The tool effectively reduces “bow-tie distortion” which might take place in the perspective layout. Here the reference is placed at the center and the tool best suits the creation of wide panoramas.

(Cylindrical Mapping)



Alignment and transformation of images is the uniquely main aspect that makes them stand out from the competition. Spherical layout assists in the creation of a 360-degree panorama.


You might have used your phone’s built-in apps for creating a collage of a bunch of images. You are aware of the fact that t requires careful alignment and overlapping of content images. Rotation and a scale are set according to the images.

However, you can also combine Photomerge with such amazing built-in 3D features to create a 360-degree shot. At first, it is essential to stitch together images that you want to merge and create a panoramic image off. Afterward, you can employ the Spherical Panorama command to wrap the panorama so it’s continuous. Follow the above rules to get an excellent panoramic image:

Paint on the Panorama

Adjustment and painting tools help to edit the panorama image more precisely by providing effective tools such as the Healing Brush and the Spot Healing Brush.
