I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018. I have a photo that is 8" x 20" that I'm trying to digitize, Ive scanned left & right halves as jpegs. I've tried to reassemble the halves using Photomerge Panorama, after many attempts no results. What can I try?

There must be overlap of images. I usually scan all 4 ways, rotating 90 degrees for each scan.

Yes, the important factor is overlapping. If scanning more parts of the image is akward, I would simply shoot the image with the camera on a tripod. Today, most cameras are good enough in resolution.

Just to be clear: My 4-way suggestion assumed that you are scanning on a flat-bed scanner like a multi-purpose printer.
