"Something wrong with my PhotoMerge CS4 Win 7 64"

I have used photomerge in the past with success, but now it's not working right. Any ideas? See attached screenshots.

Windows 7 64, CS4 64

I highlighted the files in Bridge, >Tools - >Photoshop - >Photomerge

Using the Photomerge defaults or not, I get similar results.

Thanks!

Al

Al,

It looks to me like Photoshop is trying to align the images rather than create a stitched panorama. It doesn't seem to be able to determine enough areas of commonality to line them up, so it is masking out entire images. There is a lot of complexity in those shots, and that might be contributing to the problem. You might want to try working with only two or three images at a time at first and see if that makes a difference.

Have you tried bringing the images into photoshop and then use the Edit>Auto-Align Layers function?

Thanks, Karen, I think you are right: the problem is with the images. I was just fooling around and don't really have to merge them for a project or client. I did try as you suggest and bring them in as layers, then edit-align layers and it acted the same way, even with just two images.

I guess Adobe never expected someone to make a panorama of dirty dishes

Have a very Happy New Year!

Hi Al,

It is an unusual choice of subject! It looks a bit like the dishes were rearranged in the different images. It also might help if there was a bit more overlap between the shots.

Thanks for the good wishes. Happy New Year to you too!
