How do I create a panorama in Photoshop 4.0?

I have 3 individual image files that I want to put together on screen as one. I've read the instructions on how to create panoramas but cannot seem to make it happen! Any help very welcome!

If you are going to do more panoramas I would recommend also looking at The Panorama Factory - very good and easy to use.

I use Microsoft ICE, I find it much better than using photoshop and as Simon said "It's free"

File/automate/photomerge in Photoshop, normally, not sure about Cs4 though, but as said Autostitch is good.

Wow, Photomerge option, never even knew that was there! I'm going to have to try that out.

Nessy, I read your message and assumed you had Photoshop 4.... If you have CS4 then use automate/photomerge. It is very good and no point using another package - free or not. The important thing is to ensure there is around 30% overlap on your pictures or you will not get good results. Also use portrait orientation on your camera to minimise distortion and manual to fix shutter speed & aperture. Take three sets of shots at -1, 0 and +1 exposure. This allows you to pick the best combination of foreground/sky exposures and combine with a mask to get a good final pic.

Photomerge in CS4 is the way to go. It will merge perfectly 99% pf the time. It will also apply a mask to each layer (image) if your happy with the reslut simple go to layer>flatten and hey presto. I use it for all my panoramics these days. Paul
