These techniques for stitching together panoramas are awesome!! I assumed we'd have to sit there and put them all together ourselves! Technology is a wonderful thing, and it's great to experiment with the results from the Photomerge! It saves you time rather than doing it yourself, so you can get on with the editing and other skills used to enhance the photograph.
