5. If you're manually lining up images, each image will become semitransparent as you drag so you can line up its overlapping area with the image underneath. Photomerge has tools at the left side of the workspace that can be used to move, rotate, or zoom in on the image.

6. Mark the Normal box on the right side of the dialog. You'd use the Perspective choice instead if you needed to adjust the tilt of the images. Our test images are a good match perspectivewise, so Normal works just fine.

7. Mark the Snap to Image box. This tells Photoshop to go ahead and move one or more of the images being merged to more closely line up the common areas. Other options include Advanced Blending, which may be needed to smooth the transition between images that don't match well; and Keep As Layers, which tells Photoshop not to flatten the final image. You might want that option when you plan to make other changes to the merged images later.

8. Click on OK to merge the images.

9. Crop the image at top and bottom to produce the panorama shown in Figure 5.31.
