Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: HDR/Panorama merge should automatically stack with original and move to top of the stack

It would be great if you select a set of image and select Panorama / HDR to be able to check a box and have Lightroom stack the selected images together with the resultant file.

Currently you have to request the pano and then wait for it to complete before adding the result to the selection and stacking. A simple checkbox could provide an option automatically do the following:

- Stack the current selection
- Generate the panorama / HDR image
- Add the resultant image to the stack
- Make it the key frame / current image of the stack

This would then allow you to move on to other images without having to go back and find the selections once more to do the stacking.

The merged pano should already be added to an existing stack, although it's not automatically put top of stack. Are you seeing something different?

Yes, I am selecting a set of images and then performing the Pano. I end up with the same selection and no selection on the output. If I stack the set after I do the pano the result doesn't end up in the stack. Are you stacking first, I must admit I haven't thought of doing that.

Yeah, try stacking first, and when the pano completes, click the number in the corner of it to put it on the top of the stack.

I still think automatically putting the merged pano on top of the stack is a great idea though.

Nope, not seeing it. I have tried the following:

I selected a pair of photos and choose stack. Result is a closed stack.

Leaving the stack closed, and selected, I chose the pano action. That resulted in the output file being next to the stack, not in it.

I tried opening the stack and then performing the pano. The result was the same, result ended up next to the stack, not in it.

I'm on the fastest version 2015.9, so I'm not sure what the difference is.

I'm out of the office for a couple of days, but I'll try it again when I get back to my main computer. It may have broken in the latest update.
