    I was playing with Photoshop the other day and found out it has a nifty panorama maker on it.
    So I loaded up GT5, drove the Trans Cammer round the Indy circuit and played the replay. Just as the car was crossing the "Brick Yard" I paused it and went into photomode.
    Stood in front of the car (facing it) I took a series of pictures (9 in total) through 180 degrees. Saved them all to a USB stick and loaded them all into photoshop and let it do its magic.
    I was quite impressed with the result for how easy it was to do. The final image was almost 9000 pixels wide so I have shrunk it down, but what do you all think? good eh?

    clickety click the image to make it a bit bigger :thumbup:

    Something like that would make a good banner for yopur GT5photo site.
    I could make an interesting sig with something like that. Might play around with photoshop later.

    Got Gimp as well but dont really like it.
    I really need to sit down one day and work out just what you can do in photoshop, I barely use any functions on it.

    If you don't like GIMP, try paint.net instead.

    The Photoshop I have got is Elements 9, it was already installed on my laptop when I bought it. I think the Elements versions are cut down versions of the "real thing"

    I regularly used to stumble due the cut back nature of elements. If I'd the money I'd buy the full version but I've learnt to work around the omissions. If I get really stuck I switch back to my old full versions of Photoshop 7 and Illustrator 9. My main issues are the weaker layer control, no advanced font manipulation like kerning, lack of vector marquis and the removal of the curves colour manipulation. Although I've a plugin that enables me to use curves. I do miss the ability to create decent Macros as well to automate photo processing but the I picked up a copy of Lightroom which batch processes photographs superbly.

    The panorama feature is quite an easy shortcut but the results are so much better in the full blown edition. The touch up tool/repair tool is spectacular in the full edition and very much speeds up post processing no end.

    Blah blah blah geek. X ;)

    I've got Adobe Photoshop 7. I can't use it to save my life though so I'm always impressed when people make really great forum sigs using it.
