I have been using PS CS 5.1 for a while now, and along with my old CS2 am used to, and enjoy doing panorama stitching. I use the 'photomerge' function, and 9 times out of 10 it works a treat!
However, I am thinking about doing some larger panoramas. I would like to know if PS is able to stitch together panos that have vertical and horizontal images - ie 8 wide by 3 high for example?
Been on Google but cant find a definitive answer. Can any one here help please?
Thanks in advance

Can't see why not. Some of the lens distortion might throw up a few probs depending on focal length......but you could always snap a few quick jpgs and see what happens.
Just done some more Googling and discovered a freeware program called Hugin - may give that a whirl as well.
Microsoft ICE is a free download which stitches panoramics perfectly. I've never had any problem stitching larger panos in any software.This Pano is 108 frames at 12 mpx (HDR as well as Pano)
I had the same problem and have put it down to lens distortion.
Do you use a pano head?
I made my own pano head, found the nodal point of my lens and have had no problem since. Ive done 12+ multi level stitches with no problem.
I've been known to use an old flash bracket as a pano head. I've only encountered alignment problems when photographing small spaces, like taking a 360 pano of a room in the house. Or shooting a pano at the beach, when waves don't line up. A bit of Cloning or Patch Tool helps that.
