Solutions for Creating and Scrapbooking Panoramic Photos

by Cindy Tobey

If you have scenic photos from the beautiful places you've been but aren't sure how to include them in your scrapbooks, we have some ideas to help.

Scenic photos are integral to telling the complete story of our travels. Although a photo can't completely capture the wonder and awe of actually experiencing the scenery, we can come a little closer to capturing the breathtaking view with a panoramic photo.

Panaramics offer a wider view in a more dramatic composition. Whether your camera has a panoramic mode or you take separate photos and stitch them together, using panoramic photos on your scrapbook pages is an easy way to preserve those amazing scenic views.

Tape photos together to create a panoramic

While using software to digitally stitch individual photos together is ideal, it isn't the only way to create beautiful panoramic images, as Lisa VanderVeen shows us. Lisa simply printed her photos, lined up the images, and taped them together.

To include more photos on a page, create panoramics with just two photos, or after you create your panoramic with three or more photos, simply crop the length. Lisa used this technique and was able to include two panoramic photos on her page, which gives the viewer a more complete view of the beautiful rock formations.


Panoramic Photo Tip: For more seamless panoramic photos, use photo editing software to adjust the color and lighting in each photo so that they match before you print them.
