Serge Ramelli says:

My workflow is always to retouch first and then merge, AV or manual. reason is you get the best out of raw files before merging then after !
But that is juts my way of doing it.

Abdur Rahman Jalil says:

I know that the new Photoshop is really good at merging panorama. But i always thought it is bettet to merge first, then retouch..?
Or did you retouch first because you had AV mode..?
Thank you for making these videos. They are fantastic!
Love your photos and the final results =]

Daniel Santos says:

Did you take the photos with the tripod ?

RicheUK says:

brilliant video.
Made me laugh when you created the green and red gradient and you said “..and thats it we finished!”

Serge Ramelli says:

No, I believe that as long as your width is at least 1.6 times the height you have a pano. I go from anywhere to 1.6 to 3 x the size of the height.

Lightroom 4 ????????

Serge Ramelli says:

Hello Maher,

I find that I get a better result by retouching a bit the photo in Lightroom or Camera Raw before merging, this is based on a lot of trial and error. Once a raw file is processed, well it processed and a lot of infos are hard down burned, so it better be the right infos !


Maher Ali says:

Thank you again Serge for the amazing tutorial, but I have a question for you:
Couldn’t you do all those adjustments in lightroom after merging in photoshop?
Can you only merge them in Photoshop and then get a similar result by only using lightroom?

thank you.
Maher Ali.

I absolutely love you tutorials. I love your style and the way you talk to explain things.
I am from Germany and don’t care much for the boring and stiff tutorials on most channels.
Thank you so very much for all you do. I will buy the Lightroom 4 PC training course.
