These are all great ways to create a "pano" and for the purist, the only way. My problem is I don't usually know that's what I want until later. My method of creating these wide images is to simply crop them. Cropping is frowned upon by many and I have discussed this before. This is also not the first time I have shared images that were transformed with the cropping tool, but this latest incident fueled a "panoramic frenzy".
The other day I was working on some images to include in a possible presentation for a health care facility and there was one that I liked, but the bare trees of winter made it look a little spookier than I thought appropriate for that setting.

So I decided to see what it would like cropped a bit.

It may still look a little ominous, but I liked it so much that I started opening up other images to see what they would look like with similar proportions. I may have even gotten carried away a bit, but I thought I would share a few with you today.

Posting these has made me want to go play with other images, but I won't bore you with anymore.
