Create Panorama and Photo Collage in Photoshop

The Photomerge™ command combines several photographs into one continuous image (Panorama).

For example, you can take five overlapping photographs of a city skyline, and then assemble them into a panorama.

Photos that are tiled horizontally as well as vertically can be assembled together.

Another creative use of this command is to create a Photo Collage quickly.


  1. Photomerge converts 16‑bits‑per-channel and 32‑bits-per-channel images to 8‑bits-per-channel images.
  2. In a Photomerge composition, placement of the individual photos can be fine-tuned, if necessary.
