Go to File>Automate>Photomerge. Open the images you want to use to create your panorama and make sure you've ticked Blend Images Together, Vignette Removal, and Geometric Distortion Correction. Click OK and wait for the process to finish.
Step 1: Photo merge
Step 2: Merge layersPhotoshop will then create the panorama which can take a long time so you may want to go and get a cup of tea while it finishes. Once it's complete there will be several layers in the layers pallet that need merging together. You do this by going to Layer>Merge Layers.
Step 3: Crop and cloneYou'll see Photoshop has overlapped and merged the images together but by doing so there's no gaps around the edge of the image. To tidy the image up you can use the clone tool to fill in the spaces or if you're not feeling that brave you can crop into the image to give yourself less cloning to do. Make sure you follow the pattern of the area you're cloning next to and sample from various areas so the pattern doesn't become too repetitive.
