A. When I would make a panorama, here's the steps I took:
1. Take pictures with my camera.
2. Import into iPhoto'09.
3. Assign titles to pictures and export into folder on desktop.
4. Open Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and import photos from desktop folder.
5. Let APE 6 create panorama and then save it back to the desktop folder.
6. Import it using iPhoto'09. Edit it using enhance, crop, straighten, and adjust if necessary. It worked perfectly.
B. I updated to Snow Leopard. When I imported it into iPhoto'09 and did the normal edit's everything slightly changed. As you can see in the attached movie the finished panorama would change sizes in the edit mode. I assumed that it was an interaction between iPhoto'09, Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and Snow Leopard. So, I ordered Adobe Photoshop Elements 8. Note: Each panorama was composed of 3-6 pictures.
C. I installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 and it's still doing the same thing. Note it only changes size when I double click on a panorama picture. The 3rd picture was a normal size single picture.
D. I have an Early 2009 24 inch iMac (2.93 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo) running OSX 10.6.1.
E. Anyone have any suggestions or did you have the same problem and what corrections did you do?
I don't know, but I think this is an iphoto problem, not a PSE problem per se. I'd ask in the iphoto forum over at apple's support site. Once you save it and leave Elements, PSE no longer has anything to do with your photo. There are some very good people who know a LOT about iphoto over there.
I did another panorama in APE 8. Did 7 pictures, cropped, flattened
into one layer, adjusted color, sharpened and saved to the desktop.
Imported into iPhoto 09 and it does the same problem as before.
Like I told you before Bruce, save yourself a big headache and don't DEPNED on iPhoto. iPhoto wont be fixed for a while, if ever. Just use Photoshop E. only. Or revert back to Leopard. I is outta here...
All I can say is "Good Luck" If your NOT willing to admit that iPhoto is the problem and just use PSE, I hope you find a solution, cause it's gonna be a LONG TIME for a fix.
