I have the same question as this guy: How do I align bracketed exposure panoramas in photoshop?

How to align bracketed exposure panoramas in Photoshop... I've tried every trick in the book, no luck. And no I do not want to blend the exposures first, before stitching my panorama. That's just not possible for this shot i'm working on.

So... that got me thinking (and on to my question): after photoshop has calculated and stitched the first exposure together, shouldn't it be possible to just repeat that process with a new set of images with the same calculations...? I mean, shouldn't that be easy for photoshop? It just has to repeat the previous steps...

Does anyone know of a way to do this? Is there some script I could use?

(I plan to blend the HDR exposures manually in photoshop).

I have no idea if Photoshop can do what you're asking, but if your actual problem is that you're trying to create an HDR panorama from a set of bracketed sets of images, I'd recommend using a different stitching tool that offers you more control.

Both Hugin and PTGui, as well as a number of other dedicated panostitching programs, can take this type of image grouping and perform both panostitching and HDR/exposure fusion at the same time. And both can also save stitch parameters from one set of images to reapply to another set.


  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you for your reply. I should have mentioned: I plan to blend the HDR exposures manually in photoshop, it just gives you a lot more control. I don't think this is possible using Hugin or PTGui – or is it? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ To be honest; I don’t think that Photoshop can do what i’m asking (not right now anyway – hopefully in the future…). I know the program pretty well, and if a way existed I think I would have found it by now. But I thought id check, to be sure. But I also thought perhaps it would be possible to achieve this by using a script…? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Emily, you have some control, but generally with HDR, it's the tonemapping out to a viewable LDR graphic file format you need control over, and that can be done in a separate app, like Photomatix or Photoshop from the HDR file. But both Hugin and PTGui and save stitch parameters so they can be reused for different sets of files. \$\endgroup\$
