HDR works great inside lightroom.Panorama works mostly great inside lightroom....It‘s a pitty a always have to merge my bracketed shots to HDR images... and then to merge them again into a panoramic image. It would be great to have lightoom do this for me. Just select all the images and do a HDR-Panoramic-Photomerge. Done! Please add this feature!Oh... and don‘t forget to implement it into the mobile version as well! ;)

Lightroom's ability to make raw HDR and pano's was game-changing to my workflow, but this would top it off nicely!

The photo merge and hdr features in Lighroom 6 are magnificent. However, I would like to be able to do an HDR pano automatically without having to individually merge each bracket and then merge the brackets to the pano. It wouldn’t be hard for Lightroom to do this all at once.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Feature Request connected with Photo Merge services to allow panorama stitched in....

With some multi row bracketed and stitched large format images, it's very tedious to first combined all the brackets, then merge them into a panorama. It's almost always successful, but it could be a lot easier if a third option was to batch load a set of bracketed panoramic frame sets, tell Lightroom how many in each bracket (range of 2 through 9 perhaps) and the process will create merged .dng files and present them in the panoramic window where the user can decide to stack the individual, crop, etc, similar to what is currently the feature in panoramic merging. I do this routinely with still cameras and drones. I often have several multi row panoramas that have anywhere from 3x3 to 27x3 in three rows of 9 brackets, that need merging and then stitched. I know many photographers who do this quite a bit.
