Default My first Pano (FZ150)

While at the Dodger Stadium, I tried my first panorama. I used the Panorama Assist setting on the camera and stitched the images in PS Elements. Any C&C appreciated because I'm not quite sure about what I'm doing...!!

They look pretty good to me- especially the bottom one- the night lighting giving an even exposure throughout the image.
I've never tried the "Pano" on my FZ-150- you say you use the stitch assist mode- yet you stitched them in PS. Do they not stitch in camera..?

Thanks Simon, the Panorama Assist helps you take a series of images that align well enough so that they can be stitched using a variety of software, including the PhotoFun that is on the CD that comes with the camera. It's a little tricky, so I need to practice more.

That's the pits. I just downloaded PhotoFun from the CD (hadn't done it), and I can't get it to open. I don't have Elements, so guess I can't try Panos.

BTW, yours are beautiful!

Oh by the way, the Panorama Assist setting locks the exposure so you get even exposure on all the shots.

Thanks Carol, and that is too bad about PhotoFun... I don't use it, instead I have Photoshop Elements which I used to stitch these panoramas.
