CS3 Photo Merge rocks!

I just loaded up the new Photoshop CS3 last week, and it is pretty incredible! So far my favorite new feature is the updated photo merging tool. Hands down this is the best photo merging software I have ever seen, and I have tried my fair share. Every other photo merging software (that I am familiar with)gives poorly aligned results with blatant discrepancies in brightness between the images that have been stitched together.

Because of this, if you wanted to have a presentable result, you had to spend hours in Photoshop cloning out areas that didn't line up correctly, and doing your best to blend together the lines caused by the differences in brightness. The whole processes is extremely tedious and time consuming.

Those days are gone. Here are the results from a recent engagement session Airika and I shot in Discovery Park in Seattle.

This particular image was put together from about 10 images, creating a 360 degree view of this tree canapy. Once Photoshop did the hard part, all I had to was crop it and turn it into sepia. 60 seconds of work and I am done!
