Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing images for a panoramic photo, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- With the GoPro, you can use a panning head like this.…In fact, if you connect the two together…and set this on a tripod or even on the ground…or a table top, you can simply…wind this up and let it unwind.…And what it will do is create a slow pan.…Now I find that this works pretty well.…You could also just manually turn…your camera to get the shots.…But if you've got a series of several shots from a pan,…those can be combined into a larger panoramic photo.…Let's take a really tough situation,…the complete, busiest area on earth, Times Square.…
And I'm going to show you how…to take several shots, captured on a GoPro,…and stitch them into a large, print-worthy panoramic photo.…Let's get started with some techniques in Lightroom first.…I've sorted by file extension to make…it easier to find all my images,…and I'm going to navigate to the jpegs of Times Square.…Here they are.…What I recommend is you select those images,…and then add them to a collection.…
That makes it easier to work with just these images.…Then, switch to the Develop Module,…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
