- Sometimes you're confronted with…a scene when you're shooting that's too wide…or too tall to be captured in a single frame.…In that case, you can shoot for panorama…and then use Elements to stitch your photos together.…Now, stitching a panorama together…is something that you can't do in Lightroom,…so if you do have some photos that you've shot that way,…and you're managing them in Lightroom,…you'll have to pass them from Lightroomed elements…to stitch them into a panorama.…A couple of tips when you're shooting panoramas:…If you can, set your photo on a tripod…so it stays steady,…and then rotate it between frames,…overlapping by about a third of the scene.…
Also, keep your focus and exposure controls on manual…so that they don't change automatically…as you rotate the camera from frame to frame.…So here you can see in the film strip…in my Develop Module, that I have three photos…that I shot that way of a long bridge in Switzerland.…I do wanna stitch these together,…but first I wanna do some basic adjustments.…
