Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video iPhone panoramas vs. manual panoramas, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…I think that the panorama feature in…Apple's default camera application is really great.…It's fun.…It's easy to use.…It's sort of magical the way you just pan the camera and get a really nice pano.…But you may have noticed that if you ever travel over a person's face, if there's…ever a moving content, if a car drives…through, then it really can't handle those situations.…And in extreme cases, the perspective gets thrown off.…So I want to show you a different…way to do it.…And the way that it works is you just take individual captures.…
So you take pictures as you're panning…across whatever landscape you might want to shoot.…So here's a shot. Just took a picture of that.…I was sure to overlap with the next shot, overlap with the next shot.…And you'll notice, I'm not doing any fancy exposure lock or anything like that.…I'm going to let the software take care of that.…And I'm also not doing anything to these images individually now,…although I could. I can do it before or after.…What I'm going to do is just Shift-click those to select them all.…
Next, Bryan explores Lightroom and Photoshop techniques aimed at working around the iPhone camera's limitations and making mobile photos look their best: enhancing dynamic range, correcting lens distortion, reducing noise and enhancing sharpness, and much more. Plus, learn how to create HDR images and panoramas, and even lift still images from video.
