You know what digital panoramas are, right? You go out and shoot a sequence of pictures, all from the same spot. You shoot one, pivot a little, shot another, pivot some more and so on, taking care to make sure you have some overlap from one photo to the next. Then you import the images into a photo stitcher, which merges them together. Photoshop has a built-in stitcher called Photomerge, and wouldn't you know it, it's really good. Not only can you stitch a sequence of images shot in horizontal succession, but you can add pictures shot above and below as long as they were captured from a single vantage point. Plus Photoshop has split Photomerge into a couple of sub- features called Auto-Align and Auto-Blend that let you merge all kinds of stuff and blend it together seamlessly.
Now normally, I take a dim view of artificial intelligence. It's code for software that thinks it's smarter than you. But really? It's really, really dumb. But Auto-Align, Auto-Blend and Photomerge are different. This is artificial intelligence with a brain!
