I like photographing multi-image panoramas and assembling them in Photoshop. Lately I have been doing a lot of panoramas with a 7.5mm Fisheye lens on an Olympus OM-D1 which has an image of 190 degrees field of view. But before I assemble the Panoramas I have to De-Fish the Fisheye Images in PhotoShop. To De-Fish the images I use the Adaptive Wide Angle Filter in Photoshop. Loading all the images in layers in one Photoshop file and using the Adaptive Wide Angle Filter for each layer to de-fish them before the final blending. Below is an example of de-fishing the image taken with a 7.5mm Fisheye lens on a m43 Olympus Camera. The Adaptive Wide Angle Filter I believe is set up for Full Frame Cameras so you might have to experiment on the Scale setting. It also helps when using the fisheye lens to have the horizon line somewhat in the center in the image. You have less Fisheye curvature this way to correct.
Once you have the De-Fished the images go to Edit, then Auto-Align Layers. Next use Auto-Blend layers for the final image. If shooting hand-held and you have some white areas around the edges you can select those areas and use “content – aware fill” to let Photoshop fill in those areas or crop in to eliminate them. The Featured Image is 5 landscape images panorama aligned & blended in Photoshop.
Really beautiful results – love the color intensity and stretching-to-forever detail.
Thanks so much Sam! Fisheye panoramas are fun to do!
Good job! Panoramas look amazing. Cheers for m43 user 😉
Thanks so much! Taking multiple Fisheye Images and De-fishing them for the final gives you a very wide view of the landscapes! Thanks again!
These are beautiful, Reed! Great work!!
Thanks so much Donna! They are fun to do! Plus the more you do the better the final images are!
