Panoramas, Three Ways: Part 2

First, you focused on technical accuracy in Photoshop – stitching together multiple images to create one, seamless panorama.

Now, you will create a more fragmented or disjointed panorama, using multiple stills to create a cubist-inspired image like the ones below.

Start with a room or space again, just like the original pano. You shouldn’t be moving your feet, zooming in or out. Stay put, but move your camera around to capture as many angles as possible. You should aim to have between 20 and 30 photographs to cover the entire space.

Batch editing! You need to know about this for your assignment as to not use full-sized images (times thirty!) and crash PS.

  • Save all your images to a single file (named Panorama perhaps?) without any other files in the folder.
  • Open File > Scripts > Image Processor
  • Select the folder of images you want to edit
  • Select “save in same location” for the saved images
  • Select “save as JPEG” (quality 8 or 9), and type in resizing to 600 px x 600 px
  • Select “Run” and watch Photoshop save you an hour or resizing!

Make a blank canvas that is about 8in X 12in at 300 dpi. Drag and drop all the images onto your canvas, using your own creative process to determine the outcome.
