Can you make the interactive layout option (plug in) available for photo merge in CS6? What this particular feature does is KEY to much of my work and I am now forced to re-install CS5 to have access to it (and work back and forth between 5 and 6). Thanks for excellent support over the years.
Just import the files as layers (File > Scripts > Load files into stack...)
Use Image > Canvas Size... to create some space to drag the images around
Use the move tool to manually align the images.
Once you've aligned the layers, select all the layers of the pano and use Edit > Auto-Blend Layers
This will create a superior blend compared to the simple gradient the old manual plug-in did.
