hi,

have 3 photos that someone wants me to join into one long panoramic that they can then print on a plotter. they are each 42×29, 200dpi, so the file is huge.

1 – any way to downsize w/o affecting quality too much?
2 – what’s the best way to adjust/fix the imperfections in angle, color, etc.?

thanks

Use Photomerge in CS3 then reduce the image with Bicubic Sharper. its not that big final size would be 517MB at the most.

A 42×29 @200ppi would be around 150MB, assuming some overlap a 120×29 is still around 400MB. Like Buko says, not really that big of a work file, when you’re done printing save an archive as a compressed tif or .jpg @high quality.

I’ve never used photomerge, but have extensive experience lately with CS3’s ‘Stack images as layers – auto align – autoblend’ feature. Depending on your original images, this workflow can save enormous amounts of time and the results are phenomenal. Expect to do some manual work though to finish the work off, again depending on the original files. Are they sow’s ears or silk purses?
