hello,
a friend who's a photographer has Photoshop CS (not 2), has shot some 3 seperate pictures of a panoramic location and would like to stitch them together, but first he needs to color correct them so they are similiar (sun was dropping & colors were changing)...and he's having a hell of a time...

i only work with video and told him in video editing, we have waveform monitors, vector scopes, rgb parades, etc., to tell us electronically what IS actually going on, and make CC changes accordingly rathar than eye-balling it...

so question finally is, does Photoshop CS have scopes or something similiar, or is there a plug in he could use, or a similiar program you recommend, i could always use Final Cut Pro, but at 72 dpi, that's not going to do him any good...

thanks fellow wranglers,
Lonnie

or if there aren't scopes, there must be tool set or techniques within Photoshop to do this...
thanks again,
Lonnie

well, you just need to open the image corrections tools....start with levels (on a layer), and really, curves (on a layer!) gives you more control. To "see" numerical equivalents of hues, use the eye dropper over the image, looking in the "info" palette.......

I have a video background, so, you won't see those kind of "scopes".....but, the ideas the same.
