Have you ever wanted to capture a breathtaking panorama in a single image? Today is your chance! A stitched panorama is a single image made by combining multiple smaller shots into one large panoramic image. This can take some patience, but the resulting images are worth the effort. To get you pointed in the right direction, here are a couple of tutorials:

Stitching with Photoshop

Stitching with Gimp

If those are not enough for you, just do a google search on “stitched panorama” or “stitched panorama tutorial” and you will have plenty of reading!

Note: To really get a feel for what you can do with a panoramic image, click the sample images here and view the larger sizes.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
