Crop a photo to create a panoramic

Crop photos in the opposite orientation from which they were taken, as Sabrina Ropp did, for a completely different look. By cropping the photo of her daughter into a vertical panoramic (That's right! Panoramics don't have to be horizontal), much more emphasis is put on her daughter's reflection in the sand. Experiment with your own photos to see what striking panoramic compositions you can come up with!

Creating a panoramic photo can be as simple as cropping one photo into a panoramic proportion. Sabrina Ropp cropped her photos using a 1:3 ratio. The longest side is three times longer than the shortest side. Try several variations to see what works best with your photos.


Panoramic Photo Tip: For a fun way to embellish panoramic photos, simply wrap ribbon around one end.
