I've been playing with layers in the most basic way, camera on tripod, object on table - move object - retake shot etc.
Then I've been going to Photoshop>Automate>Photomerge>Browse>Add files>Untick blend images together. This method automates the process of adding the images in a layer stack and works great in my test images.
However, yesterday I shot a half dozen images of a jet fighter moving across the frame except this time when I do the same process Photoshop tries to make a panorama.
I assumed I'd forgotten to untick the 'blend images together' box. But no that's not it. The images in both cases, the test and the jet fighter were both taken on a tripod.
Is it possible that in my shot of the jet fighter there's nothing but white sky and a plane, no definition in the clouds.
I've gone through my process again, moving a lens hood through the frame and the automate feature works just fine.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
