Superresolution photo processing with photoshop elements?

Hello,

I was just over in the photography technique forum leaning about how to take and process superresolution photos.
However, I don't have photoshop. Can you still use that processing technique with photoshop elements "photomerge panorama"? Is there anything necessary missing from the photoshop elements software that photoshop has but photoshop elements doesn't for processing superresolution photos?

Thanks,
Ashley

To put my question another way, will using "photomerge panorama" in photoshop elements increase the amount of pixels in my images?

Thanks,
Ashley

I can only suggest try it and see.

Any software can increase the pixels in an image, it is called up-sizing. Whether that results in a good image will depend how much you up-size and how good the software is, as well as how much much detail was in your original image.. I generally avoid it as it will on the whole degrade the image. Does that matter ? Depends what you intend to do with the image.

yes, just be aware the bigger your photo gets - the more memory it takes and you might get a little lag

I'm using Topaz Gigapixel AI to upsize and for the most part it works great. There is a 30 day try out for free download

Yes, presuming you shoot multiple images with the intention of making a panorama. Also, the new Camera Raw in Photoshop has a super resolution mode in the converter, but I don't know if that feature will update to the Elements program. I suspect it won't. It does an excellent job of increasing the pixel count 4x, so a K1 36mp image opens as a 144mp image. The software is using artificial intelligence, to do this, and it is way beyond bicubic interpolation in quality. My tests so far show this to be a very good method of increasing resolution, though about the only time I would use it is to allow for deep cropping.
If this is something you need to do a lot, it might be worthwhile to invest in Photoshop CC to get the feature.

Otherwise, it isn't terribly difficult to shoot multiple image panoramas and stitch them in post.
This is a ten image panorama shot on the K10D processed in whatever Photoshop program that was current in 2007.
