Make a Panorama in Lightroom Using Boundary Warp

On this video Colin Smith from PhotoshopCAFE shows how to create a great panorama stitched image with the boundary warp tool in Lightoom.

In the past smith used Photoshop to stitch images but now with the Boundary Warp tool all you need to do is to choose the images that you want to combine – choose panorama and than use the Boundary Warp slider to fill the missing parts as well as fix the edges.

The process does takes time but the tool does save a ton of time fixing the image and the missing parts by hand – very simple and useful.

This is not the first time that we are looking at editing or shooting panoramas here on LensVid – you can also check out “How to Create a Panorama in Lightroom 6 / CC” with photographer Anthony Morganti, “How to Quickly Create Panoramas in Photoshop and Lightroom” with graphics expert Howard Pinsky, “How to Shoot and Edit Panoramas” with Aaron Nace, “How to Create Panoramas Using Photoshop” by Photoshop’s senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes and “Shooting and Stitching Together Panoramas in Photoshop” with photographer Gavin Hoey.

Update: Boundary Warp is actually kind of new (introduced in late January 2016) and it also works in the latest version of Camera RAW (9.4) as you can see in this Adobe video:
