    Thanks very much everybody!

    I'm honestly not very good at these, but here's what I do:

    The way I do it is this: 2-4 photos in GT5 at about 25mm

    In Photoshop (I'm using CS5 on Mac OS X)

    File → Automate → Photomerge...

    Layout = Auto

    Select all images you want to merge together, and check Blend Images Together, Vignette Removal and (this is important) Geometric Distortion Correction.

    Hit OK and PS will do all the merging and blending.

    I then edit the image (sometimes the corners are rounded off so I either can crop the image into a rectangle or use the clone stamp tool to paint in the missing edges.)

    Then I have the image and can do the regular editing.

    HOWEVER, sometimes Photoshop glitches and closes the window during the auto-blend. :confused: After some hardcore googling, I found a solution to this, which is just a slightly longer way of doing everything above. No reason to use this method if the first one works.

    File → Scripts → Load Files into Stack…
    Then use Edit → Auto-Align Layers.

    I have to use some trial and error on the checkboxes to get the panorama to look good :lol: Anywho, I used this method on a new image which I am very proud of!

    And I took a couple more images from that race.

    And the long-coming V12 Vantage update...

    Also finally knocked out the other requests that I hadn't got to yet.

    That Aston Martin is just amazing, more amazing than the wicked SL part of the set! As always, beautiful work, C_F! :tup: The Seat Ibiza turned out excellently too!

    Yabba-dabba-freakin'-doo. You keep outdoing yourself David, stunning update. My faves are the 300SL and S/GT shots.

    It worked like a charm now CF! :tup:

    I think the Photomerge option in CS2 was just dodgy. I upgraded to CS5 and did a quick panorama of 14 shots. All of them aligned perfectly. It was necessary to crop the corners by quite a lot, but it still looked pretty good! :tup:

    CS5 actually used some time to create the panorama while CS2 created one instantly, probably the fact that CS2 never went through an aligning process.

    Bringing these cars to pure realism seems to be your top priority.
