    Panorama Merge Tool not accepting jpeg files

    3dbproductions

      Hello All,

       

      Just upgraded to Lightroom 6 and tried the Panorama Merge Tool.  I use Photomatix to create HDR images.  Photomatix then outputs jpeg files.  In the past, I have taken these jpeg files into Photoshop Elements 12 to successfully create a panorama image.  When I import these same images into Lightroom6, the panorama merge quickly fails with the message: "Unable to merge the photos.  Please cancel and review your selection."

       

      Interestingly, when I do the HDR within Lightroom6, the panorama merge works.

       

      There seems to be something with the jpegs that Photomatix creates that is confusing Lightroom6 - but it does NOT confuse Photoshop Elements 12.

       

      Anybody else seeing this issue?

       

      Thanks in advance.
