How would you fix this panoramic?

I've got some harsh lines in a 3 frame panorama I'm trying to make. Panorama and 3 originals are below. Any tips? Thanks!

Hi there

To fix existing just use a large soft selection brush in mask mode then inverse and open a levels adjustment layer. Adjust as needed to get close.

Then with a large clone or healing brush set to lighten or darken... blend any differences in light. Low tech but it works quick.

When making one, besides locking exposure on the camera, be sure "keep as layers" is checked then you can adjust the differences directly.

ok, i re-stitched it and here is what i did.......opened three images, create new file, drag three to new file. set up the middle, align left side...because you had overlapping parts, i removed the excess from the left...made a selection, feather 5 pixels, delete area......adjust levels to match tone.....repeat with right side....flatten, adjust levels to brighten slighty.

Working on your panorama.

Created 2 levels adjustment layers.

Darkened first a little, then masked using graduated mask from L-R across left hand transition.

Lightened 2nd a little, then masked using graduated mask from L-R across right hand transition.

Final levels adj layer and adjusted brightness of whole picture.

Hi,

Ballred,


welcome to RP!!

First I think you did a good job ... you should only individually adjust/match the tone with Levels or Curves..

I haven't done much panorama stitching ...just wanted to try...

I kept the central picture on top and simply moved, placed and adjusted the other two from underneath...

I used two Levels Adjustment Layers to adjust the tone of the two side pictures to the central one.

Used the healing brush to eliminate and blend in the remaining stiching lines and merged visible.

Working on the bottom part of the picture only, I lifted the shadows, increased the saturation a bit and lightly sharpened.

Nice job everybody!!!
