I just shot 141 photos to blend into a panorama in Ps. :crazy: I adjusted them in Lr and commanded Edit in > Panorama. I left the files as ~10K DGNs, and Photoshop choked on them. Then I converted them to ~800K JPGs, and Ps choked again. I finally got a panorama (of part of what I was hoping for) by selecting fewer of the small files.

I have 8GB RAM, and plenty of room on a 1TB disk. How much can I send to Ps to make a panorama?

Cheers,

Will

Fair enough Rikk, let me rephrase my post:-
I managed with 4 GB Ram, to render 21 seperate 15megapixel jpg's into a Panorama, however,
said render took somewhere around 2 hours, not including touchup time and saving time which also took a long time.

If there's 141, I assume it's a pretty wide area. What if you tried taking a chunk at a time, making multiple panoramas, and then join those together?

Photoshop has a pixel dimension limit. It's somewhere around 300,000 x 300,000 I think.

If your panorama is wider (or taller) than the limit, it won't work.
