Lightroom 6 Panorama Feature


One thing that I love to do is shoot panoramic images. I have an XPan Panoramic film camera and for digital I have a number of tripod attachments that allow me to shoot sequences of images for stitching. What I also do a lot of is shoot “informal panoramic sequences” where I hand hold the [...]

Installing Lightroom 6


Last week saw the launch of Lightroom Creative Cloud 2015 or Lightroom 6 as most people seem to know it as. On paper the upgrade didn’t look too dramatic with the exception of a new “Merge to…” option which could produce HDR images or Panoramic images.
