    Hello all,

    I'm fairly new to digital photography, well, I've been doing it for a few years now, but I'm at last getting serious about it...

    Anyway,
    I have this gorgeous panorama that I'd like to print, and have assembled all the photos (6 in all) in Photoshop Elements (Yes, I'm on a PC...I'll be getting an MBP at the end of the year to work seriously on photos, so bear with me :eek: ).
    The thing is that there seems to be darkened lines where the photos are joined, that you can see on the final "merge"...
    I've googled around and applied the healing brush tool, which has helped, but they are still visible...

    Is there a better way to do this with what I've got (Photoshop Elements, Picasa and Gimp)?

    Could it be just my Dell screen playing up, and on the print (A4), there are no lines?

    Thanks for any advice on how to blend the colours (dark blue sky),

    Crap, there's a perfect app for you, but it's Mac only. :(

    Out of interest, what is it?

    I've tried Canon's automatic stitcher and it's not bad, PSE's isn't bad too...there must be a way to do this properly...:p

    Calico.

    Your problem sounds like exposure differences between the images. They have another program that is designed for use with panoarma heads that has a program called Enblend attached to it. It evens out all the exposure lines.

    Thanks,

    So, I don't really have much choice with what I've got then? :(

    I suppose that I could print it out and see how it goes...

    I'll try and post it later, once I've printed it out...

    Thanks again,

    You can't see them on the A4 print. :)

    I'm quite pleased with it, my first serious print. ;)
